Some Lesser Known Facts about Shashi Kapoor:

#Actor-filmmaker, Shashi Kapoor has been presented with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley. The veteran actor was unable to attend the award ceremony in Delhi because of his ill-health, therefore, he was handed over the award at a function at Prithvi Theatre in suburban Mumbai.

#Shashi Kapoor was a very popular actor of his time and has acted in several hit films likeKabhie Kabhie and Jab Jab Phool Khile, which was shot in Kashmir. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the actor never brought work home.

#Shashi Kapoor apparently shares a very good rapport with his son, Kunal Kapoor. His son revealed that they would often have long talks on movies and theatre.

#Shashi Kapoor was a heartthrob back in the ’70s and like many others, Shabana Azmi too was a huge fan of the actor. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, the actress revealed that she would save her pocket money and buy posters of Shashi Kapoor from Grant Road and get them autographed by him. The actress, later on, romanced Shashi Kapoor in Fakira, sharing her experience Shabana said, “I was a crazy fan and to suddenly land a role opposite my childhood idol in Fakira was unbelievable! On the first day, we were shooting the song ‘ Dil Mein Tujhe.. .’ During rehearsals when the dance director, Satyanarayan, demonstrated the moves, I was aghast! I couldn’t get so intimate with Shashi Kapoor, I told my hairdresser and burst into tears in my make-up room. Minutes later, my hero was banging on the door wanting to know what the problem was. When I tearfully explained, he mocked, ‘Mummy, mummy Mujhe actor banna hai !’ Calling me a silly girl, he told me to come out when the shot was ready. When I arrived on the set, I found that he had changed all the moves so I’d be more comfortable.”

#According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Shashi began his tryst with acting at the tender age of four. He was reportedly a part of several plays that were directed and produced by his father Prithviraj Kapoor.

#Shashi Kapoor was not just an exceptional actor but had also tried his hand at direction. In 1991, he had directed a film called Ajooba that starred Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. Sharing a story from the sets, Amitabh Bachchan said in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, “He moved around the set with a stick in his hand, with the intention of using it on anyone who misbehaved. But he never used it! He was one director who cared immensely for his artists and technicians, on an equal plane.”
