Ranbir Kapoor heads to Cape Town after Shashi Kapoor's funeral

Shashi, 79, passed away on December 4 due to kidney problem.

These words are not only synonymous with veteran filmmaker Raj Kapoor, but are also the motto for most artistes in the film industry.

Shashi Kapoor, the romantic screen icon of the 70s and early 80s, died on Monday at a hospital in Mumbai. You will be missed Shashiji!

He was a member of the Kapoor dynasty, which has dominated the Hindi film industry for decades.

Shashi Kapoor was the recipient of the Padma Bhushan and Dadasaheb Phalke Award as well as several film honours.

Almost 24 hours ago, the Kapoor family was mourning the death of Shashi. As I grew up, I saw him in other films where his performance was the opposite of theatrical...and yet his love for the theatre is legendary.

Actor Randhir Kapoor, son of veteran actor Raj Kapoor, confirmed the news.

He debuted with the 1961 film Dharmputra. But looks like fans from across the border are paying their tribute to Shashi Kapoor. How one could forget when the charming actor playing the role of cop Ravi in blockbuster Deewar confidently says, "Mere Pas Maa Hai" to his brother bragging about all the wealth? Shashi Kapoor's father Prithviraj Kapoor wanted to have a permanent place for his theatre group and had even acquired a property in Juhu in Mumbai.
