The world came to a standstill yesterday when the news of legendary actor Shashi Kapoor's death took over. Everyone was left with teary eyes and broken heart as the man was much loved by all his fellow actors as well as his millions of fans.
After a long period of hospitalisation, Shashi Kapoor breathes his last on 4 December, 2017.
Just like the whole industry, Shashi Kapoor's friend Amitabh Bachchan is also saddened by the news. The actors remembers the legend through his blog. He wrote,
"Shashi Kapoor, son of Prithviraj Kapoor, younger brother to Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor, making a debut in a forthcoming film, is what the caption read ... And I said to myself, as very uncertain thoughts raced through my mind of wanting to become a film actor, that, with men like him around, I stood no chance at all."
Big B recalled that when Shashi Kapoor used to talk, he had all the emotions in his voice. He was gentle, he was mischievous and most of the time inaudible. He further added to his blog, "Somewhere he had let himself go after the passing away of his dear wife Jennifer. I had visited him on occasion in hospital during some of the times he had been hospitalised earlier."
Mr. Bachchan was so disheartened with Kapoor's condition that he decided to never visit him again. He never wanted to see him like this again until he was told yesterday that he is no more.
Amitabh has shared screen space with Shashi Kapoor in a number of films like "Suhaag", "Deewar", "Roti Kapada Aur Makaan", "Silsila", "Namak Haraam", "Kabhi Kabhie" and "Shaan". Their chemistry has always been praised much.
