May you Rest In Peace.

shashi kapoor is no more. Yes, it comes as a huge shocker that the actor, who entertained us for so many years, has passed away. The actor has been ill for a while now and finally breathed his last. Shashi Kapoor was born in 1938 and is survived by three kids Karan Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor, and Sanjana Kapoor.

Kapoor had chest infection in 2014. Before that, he had undergone bypass surgery as well. He was later discharged from the hospital. Known for his work in films such as Deewar, Satyam Shivam Sundaram and Kabhie Kabhie, the 79-year-old has been staying away from the limelight since the late 1990s. Amitabh Bachchan had earlier recalled the time Kapoor had supported him. “In Mumbai, Shashiji had always been a great support. I would visit him on set when I was looking for a job, he already being an established star by then, and he would introduce me to all his directors.”

The septuagenarian actor, who has featured in over 160 movies, and has won three National Awards was presented with the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. Together with Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor has given the industry some of the most entertaining films to us. Be it Do Aur Do Paanch or Deewar, together they were a formidable pair who spelt winners at the box office.
