Why Shashi Kapoor is ‘The Real Gentleman’
It is quite rare to see an actor being extremely good looking and successful, has everything to showcase, but is down to earth and never uses stardom for personal reasons. Shashi Kapoor was not only a superstar of Bollywood but much more than that. He was an ideal husband, father, and son who kept every relationship before anything.
Shashi Kapoor’s real-life love story with wife Jennifer has made him an ideal lover desired by every girl on this planet, and the way he lived his life is an inspiration for all of us.
“He was the most handsome man I’ve ever come across,” says Shabana.
When he did ‘Abhinetri’ with me I was new and he was established. Still, he didn’t mind doing a film that revolved around my character said, Hema Malini.
Shashi Kapoor was indeed a real gentleman in both reel and real life. This is why media is calling his death the end of an Era.
May his soul Rest in Peace.
