Yesterday, Bollywood’s eternal charmer Shashi Kapoor, left us for his heavenly abode. It’s a great loss to Bollywood because the actor was loved by everyone. There’s hardly anyone who wasn’t fond of Prithviraj Kapoor’s youngest son. He was not only a fab actor but also a thorough gentleman. His dimpled lopsided smile made our hearts flutter. For us, he was the one who could stand up to Amitabh Bachchan’s paisa, gaadi and bangla, with just Maa on his side in Deewar! But apart from that, he was the best friend Amitabh Bachchan had in all his films – the friend who was ready to do anything for him in films like Suhaag, Do Aur Do Paanch. Every film that they acted in together were amazing in their own right. But films like Sharmilee, Jab Jab Phool Khile, Abhinetri, Aa Gale Lag Jaa did justice to the amazing acting talent that he was. His departure from this world has left a huge void. His pretty smile is something which will stay with us forever.
