Kapoor legacy ends with the sad demise of Shashi Kapoor who was one of the greatest versatile actors of all time. However, amidst all this something really unexpected happened.
On Monday's News at Ten, two video clips were played as presenter Huw Edwards announced the death of the 79-year-old Bollywood star, who died the same day at 5.20pm. BBC, an global news channel did the biggest blunder as they played a video with clippings of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, instead of Shashi Kapoor.
Shashi Kapoor has acted in several notable films including Suhaag, Deewar, Kabhi Kabhi, Namak Halal and many more.
Bollywood celebrities like Sanjay Dutt, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Suresh Oberoi, Saif Ali Khan, Salim Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor, and Supriya Pathak, among others, were present at the cremation. "Not our usual standards and I apologise for any upset", he tweeted. And many amongst those to criticise it were the corporation's own stars. Worse still, neither of them are the deceased actor Huw refers to. They too, later apologised.
Since the news of his death spread on Monday, tributes have been pouring in for the veteran actor.
It's quite unfortunate when such things happen as everybody gets a topic to start trolling.
Kapoor was a member of a family dynasty in the Bollywood film industry.
