Striking features, wavy brown hair, and irresistible charm - Shashi Kapoor was one in a million. The aura he carried was much different than the typical Bollywood stars of his generation and he always remained to be different. He wasn't the typical macho actor but a flamboyant, handsome man who charmed all with his striking good looks and principled characters. His filmography boasted of some of the most successful films like Kabhi Kabhie, Deewaar, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Suhaag and more. It was in 2017, at the age of 79 that he breathed his last. Today marks his birth anniversary.
On this occasion, here are some rare and unseen pictures of the late actor. Shashi Kapoor appeared in quite a few films with the Angry Man of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan. Here's a look at a BTS still from their film Shaan.

Another adorable picture of Shashi Kapoor with his wife. She passed away in the year 1984 after battling colon cancer. It is stated that her demise left Shashi Kapoor shattered. In fact, post-Shashi Kapoor's demise, Amitabh Bachchan in his blog penned about the actor letting himself go after Jennifer's demise. "He had been ailing .. somewhere he had let himself go after the passing away of his dear wife Jennifer .. I had visited him on occasion in Hospital during some of the times he had been hospitalised earlier .. but I never went to see him again .," wrote Big B. Such love is rare to find.
