Big B was in retrospection mode and recalled his first ever picture of late Shashi Kapoor when he first saw him in a magazine. The Shehenshah wrote’ “Standing elegantly without a care in the world, I saw him standing by a Mercedes Sports car, a convertible, a smart trimmed beard and moustache, adorning involuntarily, the face of this incredibly handsome man. It was a picture that filled almost an entire page of a magazine. Shashi Kapoor. son of Prithviraj Kapoor, younger brother to Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor, making a debut in a forthcoming film, is what the caption read. And I said to myself, as very uncertain thoughts raced through my mind of wanting to become a film actor, that, with men like him around, I stood no chance at all.”
The Shehenshah further wrote about the late actor’s love and emotions for his wife Jeniffer Kendal. He wrote, “He had been ailing .. somewhere he had let himself go after the passing away of his dear wife Jennifer .. I had visited him on occasions in Hospital during some of the times he had been hospitalised earlier .. but I never went to see him again .. I would never have .. I never ever wanted to see this beautiful friend and ‘samdhi‘ in the state I saw him in the hospital …. and I did not today, when they informed me that he had gone .”
Amitabh Bachchan ended his blog on the note how he used to be called by the late actor. He wrote,
“He fondly addressed me as ‘babbua’ .. and with him have gone many incredible unread chapters of his and my life.”
The superstar duo acted in many blockbusters such as ‘Deewar’ (1975), ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ (1976), ‘Trishul’ (1978) and ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982).
