'Farewell Shashi Uncle': Karisma Kapoor reminisces fondest memories with actor

Katrina Kaif dedicates heartfelt post to late veteran actor Shashi Kapoor Why is BBC being accused of Racism by Bollywood Fans?

Indian film industry is still recovering from the death of iconic actor Shashi Kapoor, who passed away on December 4 due to prolonged kidney ailment. However, amidst all this something really unexpected happened.

But BBC's tribute to the late actor turned into a blooper when the channel aired clips of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor as the news anchor announced the news of Shashi Kapoor's death. Shashi Kapoor loved cricket more than he loved films and was often spotted at worldwide games featuring his nation. Shashi Kapoor, who was one of the finest and most talented film personalities, breathed his last Monday evening at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here. One clip had Amitabh Bachchan while the other had Shashi's nephew Rishi Kapoor.

This video brought about severe criticism for the news channel.

Some of the own members and stars of BBC criticized the error made on social media. It's poor when it would have taken them seconds to verify.

In a statement, the BBC said: "BBC News at Ten is very sorry the wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor. Not our usual standards and I apologize for any upset". They also apologised later on.

Paliwal also recalls an earlier visit of the actor to Haridwar in the first half of 1950s, when Shashi Kapoor accompanied his father Prithvi Raj, brothers Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor had come for enactment of a theatrical presentation at Chitra Talkies near Shiv Moorti square.
