'Farewell Shashi Uncle': Karisma Kapoor reminisces fondest memories with actor

Share

Shashi Kapoor began acting at four in plays produced and directed by his father and started in films as a child actor in the late 1940s.

Shashi Kapoor, a leading Bollywood actor and producer from the 1970s and 80s, has died after a long illness.

Presenter Huw Edwards announced the death of the veteran actor by playing two video clips but sadly none of the clips showed Shashi Kapoor. Shashi Kapoor loved cricket more than he loved films and was often spotted at global games featuring his nation.

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. And many amongst those to criticise it were the corporation's own stars. "Not our usual standards and I apologize for any upset". It's poor when it would have taken them seconds to verify.

Amazon Prime Video finally lands on Apple TV
As we mentioned, Amazon hasn't listed the Apple TV (or Google's Chromecast dongles) on its online marketplace since 2015. Cook reiterated that same news at the debut of the Apple TV 4K on September 12th but again gave no firm release date.

An Indian television news channel too mistakenly tweeted the demise of Congress politician Shashi Tharoor, while reporting on Kapoor's death on Monday.

"BBC News at Ten is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor". They also apologised later on.

On Tuesday, Shashi Kapoor was honoured with a three-gun salute in the presence of his family and the Bollywood biggies.
