The news of Shashi Kapoor’s passing was released and the entire Nation reeled with the shock of the loss. It seems almost poetic that Mumbai skies should break into a heavy downpour to mourn the loss of this great legend. The funeral of the actor was held today and some of the most prominent stars came to his residence to pay their respects. The entire Kapoor family, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and many others also came.
His last rites were performed in Mumbai’s Santa Cruse Hindu Crematorium at 12 in the noon today. In the final fictures, it is clear how weak his illness had made him. He was given the honour of Padna Bhushan in 2011, which entitled him to the funeral rights associated with it. There were three volley shots to mark his passing. There was a special march by the Mumbai police as well.
