As Shashi Kapoor left us today, this dialogue from Yash Chopra directed Deewar continues to echo amongst us. The dialogue delivery, the body language, poker-faced stares – irreplaceable! We have truly lost a treasure today.

The veteran star was admitted to Ambani Hospital last night and passed away this evening. His elder son, Kunal, was by his bedside when his end came. His daughter Sanjana and his younger son Karan are on their way. Both of them were out of station when the veteran star breathed his last.
