Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone's family performs his son's 'Shraddh' at Haridwar
Last rites are important in any religion, as it gives a last goodbye for the departed soul. And when pain of missing someone, who is very close to you is too much, belief takes your place.

Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone also faced some similar situation recently after the demise of his son, Sage Stallion, who died of heart attack. Earlier it looked like a case of drug overdose, but, the later investigations concluded he died of heart attack.

Sylvester found it difficult to forget him and still felt his presence around him. Sylvester is a great follower of Hindu religion and got in touch with astrologer, Prateek Mishrapuri who was visiting states then. Mishrapuri suggested him the Hindu rituals of shraddh (Hindus last rites are called 'shraddh' and are performed on the banks of river Ganga) to ensure that his son's soul was in a better place.

He sent his half brother and wife to perform the ceremony on his behalf in Haridwar. They stayed in there and followed the rituals for shraddh and they also donated a cow to the Brahmin. They also performed the same rituals for Stallone's sister Toni Ann who died in 2008 at the age of 48.

Sylvester's brother Michael and wife Michelle performed the shraddh rituals under the guidance of Prachya Vidya Society President Dr Pratik Mishrapuri. Russian cine stars Alexi and his wife Olga were also present during the shraddh of Sage.
