Kapoor won immense popularity for his roles in Hindi films including “Jab jab Phool Khile”, “Awara”, and “Kabhi Kabhie”, as well as his good looks.
Bollywood fans shared their memories and favorite pieces of Kapoor dialogue on social media Monday.
While Kapoor did play the stereotypical romantic Bollywood hero in many films, he did it out of compulsion to take care of his family, said Aseem Chhabra, author of “Shashi Kapoor: The Householder, the Star.”.
In 1972, Kapoor and his wife, Jennifer Kendal, founded the Prithvi Theatre in Mumbai.
Kapoor stopped acting for the most part and took up drinking instead, Chhabra said.
Kapoor who becomes a police officer, is foil to Bachchan’s character, who becomes a gangster in the city of Mumbai.
Bachchan’s character tells Kapoor, he has wealth, he has everything and asks him what he has.
