Being the youngest of the second generation of ‘Kapoors’, Shashi Kapoor had inherited the ‘acting’ bug and talent in his DNA from his renowned family. He started working in his father Prithviraj Kapoor’s plays from the early age of four and also played junior Raj Kapoor in ‘Aag’ and ‘Awaara’. He was one of those rare actors who got married even before starting his screen career. He met the love of his life Jennifer Kendal while travelling along with his father’s theatre group and both married when Shashi was just 20.
Blessed with a super cool and charming personality, Shashi Kapoor made his debut in 1961 but no major actress wanted to work with him as all his initial films had flopped. It was only Nanda who continued to work with him and he soon hit the jackpot when their romantic musical ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ became a blockbuster hit. Then there was no looking back for the handsome and debonair Kapoor. RJ Adaa narrates his interesting story in SCREEN LEGENDS Shashi Kapoor Part 1 and also packs it with his stylish scenes and clips from several films.
