Tearful Salute To Legendary Shashi Kapoor

by -

"Thank you Shashi Kapoor sahab for what you did for Indian Theatre and Cinema," tweeted Kamal Haasan on the gloomy Tuesday that followed Shashi Kapoor's death. "Thank you the Kapoor family for carrying the service forward. Tearful Salute to a man who loved the arts. Condolences to many fans like me. His family included," read his entire tweet. "Shashi Kapoor, your contribution to cinema and your infectious smile will always stay with us. Condolences to the family," added Madhuri Dixit while Anil Kapoor wrote: "Will miss you Shashi uncle... thank you for all you have done for me... eternally grateful." Amitabh Bachchan also tweeted his tribute to his former colleague, writing: "To Shashiji from your babbua."

The news reached Anupam Kher a little later because he's currently in Sydney but he did find time to write about his fond memories of Shashi Kapoor, who "was the 1st to give me a role in Utsav". "He was full of life and Life was full of him. Most charming actor and human beings of all times," he added. Other stars who have also mourned the "end of an era" on Twitter are Hrithik Roshan, Arshad Warsi, Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon.

On Monday, condolence messages from Shabana Azmi and Simi Garewal - Shashi Kapoor's former heroines - were the first ones to arrive on Twitter and were followed by tweets by Sridevi, Aamir Khan and Karan Johar.

Shashi Kapoor died in Mumbai's Kokilaben Ambani Hospital on Monday. He was 79 and had been on dialysis for a kidney ailment. Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan were one of the first celebrities to drop by Shashi Kapoor's home on Monday evening.
