Shashi Kapoor Dead: Fans Confuse Film Legend For Shashi Tharoor

The screen icon of the sixties, seventies and eighties - who was a member of the famed Kapoor Khandaan - took his last breath at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here. He said that his films like Sharmilee, Kabhi Kabhi, Kala Patthar, Deewar, Satyam Shivam Sundaram and Trishul were very popular.

Shashi Kapoor in his extensive career as an actor, producer and director, performed in around 200 movies.

He had been suffering from ailments for the past few years. The legendary actor was bestowed with various awards, the notable ones being Dadasaheb Phalke Award and Padma Bhushan.

Shashi's eldest brother, Raj Kapoor, who died in 1988, was also a famous Hindi cinema actor.

As a producer, he continued this streak with 1981 crime drama "Kalyug" and "36 Chowringhee Lane", which featured his wife and late British actress Jennifer Kendal as an Anglo-Indian teacher.

Shahsi Kapoor's first film in the lead role was the 1961 film Dharmputra. He will always be remembered for the memorable roles he played in a number of films.

He started acting in films as a child artiste in the late 1940s and appeared in films like Sangram (1950) and Dana Paani (1953) under the name of Shashiraj as there was another actor by the same name who used to act in mythological films as child artiste.

He appeared in several English-language films, including several Merchant Ivory productions, such as The Householder, Shakespeare Wallah, Bombay Talkie, and Heat and Dust.

Kapoor acted in more than 100 Hindi films.

The actor is survived by his three children: Karan, Kunal and Sanjana Kapoor.

Two minutes silence was observed at Delhi International Film Festival to pay homage to the veteran actor on his demise. Mr Kumar in his condolence message said that Mr Kapoor's death had left a great void in the cinema world, which would be hard to fill.
