Shashi Kapoor: Veteran Bollywood Actor Passes Away At 79

Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

Shashi Kapoor's children - Sanjana, Kunal and Karan Kapoor - were pictured welcoming the guests.

These words are not only synonymous with veteran filmmaker Raj Kapoor, but are also the motto for most artistes in the film industry. But he could not fulfill his wish as he passed away in 1972.

Pictures from the meet were shared online.

Shashi Kapoor, the romantic screen icon of the 70s and early 80s, died on Monday at a hospital in Mumbai.

Almost 24 hours ago, the Kapoor family was mourning the death of Shashi. He was undergoing dialysis for a kidney ailment for many years.

He was a member of the Kapoor dynasty, which has dominated the Hindi film industry for decades.

Actor Randhir Kapoor, son of veteran actor Raj Kapoor, confirmed the news.

Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Salim Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Supriya Pathak, Shakti Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Suresh Oberoi among others were present at the cremation. The Mumbai police gave three-gun salute to the star to remember his tremendous contribution to cinema.

Padma Bhushan in 2011 and Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2015, Shashi got the best of what the fraternity and the government had to offer.
