Shashi Kapoor, the romantic screen icon of the 1970s and early 1980s, died on 4 December at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai. He was 79.

“We are the airport looking at the flight schedule, and want to reach Mumbai at the earliest. We might go tonight or tomorrow morning,” Shanti Malik, who works closely with the Kapoor family, told IANS on Monday evening.

Malik also said that he doesn’t know the cause of Shashi Kapoor’s death, and would be in a position to give out details on Tuesday morning.

The younger brother of late Raj and Shammi Kapoor, who were both actors par excellence, Shashi Kapoor started his tryst with acting at the age of four, with plays directed and produced by his father Prithviraj Kapoor.

He started acting in films as a child in the late 1940s. His best known performances as child artist were in Aag (1948) and Awaara (1951), where he played the younger version of the character played by his elder brother Raj.

When he grew up, he made his debut as a leading man in the 1961 film Dharmputra, and went on to appear in more than 150 Hindi films.

Shashi Kapoor, whose nuanced acts in memorable films like Deewar, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Trishul and Kabhi Kabhie captivated Hindi film buffs, was married to English theater actress Jennifer Kendal.

He is survived by three children —  Kunal, Karan and Sanjana Kapoor.

Kareena Kapoor Khan has described her sister-in-law Soha Ali Khan as a solid woman.

Soha Ali Khan on Tuesday launched her first book The Perils of Being Moderately Famous. In a rare picture perfect moment, the entire family, including Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan’s husband Kunal Kemmu gathered on the stage.

Kareena Kapoor Khan said of Soha Ali Khan, “I truly believe that she is torchbearer of the family and this book’s title doesn’t do justice to her being famous or not famous because I think she is the grounding on which all of us stand on, and I have truly seen the way she has compassionately and with just a breaking heart, looked after her father (the late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi). I have never ever seen any daughter like that. I am a daughter, but I don’t know if I could have done it the way she looked after him and that. In my eyes, she is a solid woman and I am sure Abba is listening to this.”

Sharing her personal relationship with Soha Ali Khan and revealing some interesting stories about her, Kareena Kapoor Khan said, “I rarely get intimidated by anyone, but if there is one person in the family that I am completely in awe of I think is Soha. When I am at dinner with Saif or Soha, I am like, ‘Oh my God, I am never going to understand their conversation. Soha has always been so polite with me. She always asks me about what’s the gossip or what shopping I did recently, but apart from that, I think we have found our way and if there is anyone in the family that any of us turned to when Amma (Sharmila Tagore) is all worked up and fired up, then there is just one person that can control the situation and that is none other than Soha.”

During the book launch, the family members shared anecdotes about Soha Ali Khan’s life — right from her childhood, her college days, till her motherhood phase.
