Shashi Kapoor leaves world without fulfilling his biggest wish

His grand uncle Shashi Kapoor passed away 2 days back.

Upon hearing of the legends passing, his nephew Rishi Kapoor, Bollywood stars like Saif Ali Khan and others who were away from the city, flew back down to the city after hearing about Shashi Kapoor's death. You will be missed Shashiji! Shashi's brother Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor ruled the Hindi film industry for decades. How versatile he was as an actor, fitting so seamlessly into the wide variety of roles he took on, whether in mainstream cinema or in smaller art films.

Members of Kapoor family, including Krishna Raj, Neetu, Randhir, Babita, Karisma, Rajeev, Armaan and Adar sat together.

He was honoured with the the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2011.

He made his debut as a leading man in the 1961 film "Dharmputra" and went on to appear in more than 116 films during the 70s and until the mid 80s.

Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan were frequent co-actors and the pair was popular with the audiences. The Bollywood veteran was not only a handsome face in films, but has also been in the capacity behind the cameras as director and producer. Shashi Kapoor's father Prithviraj Kapoor wanted to have a permanent place for his theatre group and had even acquired a property in Juhu in Mumbai.
