Rizvi's body reached Mumbai at 5 am after it was flown in from Turkey.

As media reports suggest, his body was taken to the Rizvi house, Meena Mahal near Almeida Park in Bandra, before it was shifted to Rehmatabad Qabrastan. At Rehmatabad Qabrastan, the producer was buried next his younger brother.

After his death news was announced, various celebrities took to Twitter to pay tribute to Rizvi, who produced the 2014 film Roar.
