The Sobo Star

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

R.I.P. Shashi Kapoor — the quintessential South Bombay star (sorry, South Mumbai just doesn’t sound the same)! Shashi, in his time, was the chocolate boy of Bollywood and also its most suave and Westernised face.

He had broken ranks with the suburban decadence that Bollywood has always flaunted. He lived in South Mumbai, married an English lady, went to the Breach Candy Club, and while he worked in Bollywood, he never brought Bollywood home.

His kids grew up normally without starry airs and Shashi always retained a normalcy that other Bollywood stars of his time, and thereafter, just did not possess. Perhaps one can credit the late Jennifer Kendall, Shashi’s better half, for that, but Shashi must have played his part too.

Age and infirmity caught up with him and the last several years must have been very tough on him and his family. Death would have provided not just relief from physical ailments but the prospect of reunification with his beloved wife, after whose demise he seemed lost and wan and never remarried. Meanwhile, let us all wallow in the happy screen moments of the swashbuckling Shashi!
