Shashi Kapoor is no doubt to be a veteran star of our Hindi film Industry. Legendary actor and producer Shashi Kapoor died on Monday in Mumbai at the age of 79. He had been suffering from various infirmities for many years now.
However, Kapoor Sahab has left a long legacy to follow and a lot of memories to cherish. One of the most beautiful actresses of all time has also retaliated her views about Shashi Kapoor as her on-stage partner. Hema Malini has starred with him in several films- like Abhinetri, Trishul and Jahan Pyar Mile- to name a few.
Hema Malini in her media interaction opened up about Shashi Kapoor. Hema Ji said, “I learnt so much from him. He was so patient working with me in Abhinetri when I was a newcomer opposite him. Abhinetri was unarguably the film where I enjoyed working with him the most. Knowing him was such a pleasure. He was so friendly, so jovial. I am lucky to have worked with tall and handsome heroes, one of them was definitely Shashi Kapoor.” Hema ji further added, “Shashi was the most handsome star I worked with. My word, he was so good-looking- so English like,” and then quickly added, “Dharamji was so handsome in his own way- so Indian like.”
We all miss the one and only Shashi Kapoor who had been there in the entertainment business for most of his life. Rest in Peace Shashi sir.
