Peshawar Just Paid A Beautiful Tribute To Shashi Kapoor And Fans Are Touched

The veteran actor, and Bollywood great Shashi Kapoor on 4 December in Mumbai, India. During his lifetime, his heart-aching good looks, dashing personality and brilliant acting skills made him the most sought-after man in town. Known for films like ‘Deewar,’ ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ and so many more, the actor hailed from the famous Kapoor clan and was the youngest of three brothers, and the only one left after his brothers passed away.


Shashi Kapoor died age 79 in Mumbai, India after kidney failure from prolonged illness

The actor twinkled up the silver screen with his zesty acting and movies such as ‘Junoon’ and ‘Namak Halaal.’ He became a quick star, even winning the prestigious ‘Dadasaheb Phalke Award,’ the most treasured Indian cinema award.



Shashi’s father, Prithvi Raj Kapoor was born in Faisalabad, Pakistan before moving Peshawar to work in theatre (his father was a police officer in Peshawar)

His family later relocated to Bombay in 1928 – the Kapoors have sturdy roots in Peshawar, having hailed from the city. Prithvi’s house still exists in Peshawar to this date and is now a heritage site overlooked by the Pakistani government.
