         Tags: Remembering Bollywood icon Shashi Kapoor
 

Iconic Bollywood actor and producer Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday after a prolonged illness.

He is survived by his sons Karan and Kunal and daughter Sanjana.

Shashi Kapoor was the youngest son of the late Prithviraj Kapoor, an icon of Indian theater and cinema.

In a career spanning over four decades, the actor appeared in more than 150 films, including a dozen in English.

A member of the Kapoor dynasty, which has dominated the Hindi film industry for decades, Shashi Kapoor won several national film awards and was awarded the Padma Bhushan civilian honour in 2011.

In 2015, he became the third in his family to be honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the highest honour in Indian cinema.

Kapoor, who had a huge fan following among women, was known for his charming smile and was often described by his fans as the 'handsomest star ever'.

The legendary actor was married to late English actress Jennifer Kendal, with whom he established Prithvi Theatre in 1978.

Kapoor started his career as a child actor in the late 1940s appearing in commercial films including 'Sangram' (1950) and 'Dana Paani' (1953). He worked in four Hindi films as a child artiste from 1948 to 1954.

His first leading role was in the award-winning 1961 'Dharmputra', directed by Yash Chopra, which was one of the first Indian features to deal with partition.

Shashi Kapoor worked with superstar Amitabh Bachchan in hits like 'Jab Jab Phool Khile' (1965), 'Deewar' (1975), 'Kabhie Kabhie' (1976), 'Trishul' (1978) and 'Namak Halal' (1982).

His comment 'Mere paas maa hai' from 'Deewar' during a tense confrontation with the 'PINK' star tops the list of best Bollywood lines for millions of fans across the globe.
