A tribute to Shashi Kapoor

An icon, a legend and an actor whose skills can only be described as effortlessly incredible, Shashi Kapoor’s humble soul always stood miles above his family’s legacy, winning the hearts of audiences across the world. Taking viewers on a captivating journey through his life, from being a child artiste to a Dada Saheb Phalke Award and National Award winner, will be storyteller par excellence Javed Akhtar in the penultimate episode of Classic Legends Season 4. 

On December 17, with its proposition Who Zamana Kare Deewana Zee Classic will pay its respects to one of India’s greatest entertainers through many untold tales and glimpses of Late Shashi Kapoor’s personal as well as professional life. Belonging to Bollywood’s first family, the Kapoors, Shashi was not only the youngest but also the most pampered and mischievous of the three brothers. Much like rest of the family, his love for food was endless! Javed Akhtar recalls, “Shashi Kapoor was once sent to a hostel where he did not like the food. Almost immediately, he got in touch with his family and used many pressure tactics to take him back home.”
