Chibber, a retired Colonel from the Indian Army, breathed his last on Tuesday night, and Shah Rukh and Gauri took a flight from Mumbai to the national capital upon hearing the news, a source close to the actor told IANS.
The couple attended the cremation -- looking visibly upset but standing strong by Gauri's mother's side -- at the Lodhi Road crematorium. Also accompanying them was their close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar.
"Death is the only reminder of life," Karan tweeted on Wednesday.
Shah Rukh is said to have put the shooting of a new project on hold to be with his family at this time of personal loss.
