This year couldn’t have ended on a more sad note. After Vinod Khanna, we lost yet another legendary actor whose contribution to Indian cinema is unmeasurable. Shashi Kapoor, who breathed his last today had been keeping unwell for quite some time now. His sudden demise has left his fans in a state of shock and sadness.
He will be forever etched in our memories, especially his line ‘Mere Paas Maa Hai’ will be remembered until eternity. His charming looks and beautiful smile that made the ladies go weak in their knees will be missed immensely. It’s not just a great loss to the Kapoor family but also for the Indian Cinema.
According to reports, he had been admitted to Kokilaben Hospital and had to undergo several rounds of dialysis.
Here’s how Twitterati paid its respect to the veteran actor:
भारतीय और अंतर्राष्ट्रीय फिल्मों के लिए सुप्रसिद्ध, अभिनेता शशि कपूर के निधन के बारे में जान कर बहुत दुख हुआ। सार्थक सिनेमा को उनका योगदान और भारतीय रंगमंच को शक्ति देने में उनकी महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका हमेशा याद की जाएगी। उनके परिवार के प्रति मेरी शोक संवेदनाएं —राष्ट्रपति कोविन्द

I feel a part of me is gone. A great actor, smart, cosmopolitan, impossibly handsome & w/a name that was often confused w/mine. (My office got two calls from journalists today about my reportedly serious ill-health!) I will miss #ShashiKapoor. Condolences2his family&all his fans pic.twitter.com/fSz3jafPZJ
