Cuttack: As singing legend Lata Mangeshkar left for her heavenly abode on Sunday, a number of known faces from the world of politics, cricket and entertainment attended her state funeral at Shivaji Park. Among them were Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, actor Shah Rukh Khan, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who paid their last respects to the veteran singer.
