The charming and lively actor, Shashi Kapoor passed away on December 4 at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai and was consigned to flames on December 5 at Santacruz Cemetery. Many personalities from film fraternity attended his last journey and bade teary farewell to the iconic actor. We don't need any reminder or proof to remember how beloved the actor was among his co-stars. In case someone needs it, let's revisit the epic photo featuring Shashi Kapoor with his eight heroines.
Shashi Kapoor was given Dadsaheb Phalke Award in 2015 and his family organised a ceremony at Prithvi Theatre sending out invites to all known faces of Bollywood. Rishi Kapoor presided over events and also Amitabh Bachchan was there to speak but nothing is as special as this picture which can give you goosebumps.
Rishi Kapoor tweeted this picture with caption, ''And his heroines! WOW''. The snap in which Shashi Kapoor in on wheel chair, instantly went viral. The actresses beside him are: Shabana Azmi, who co-starred with him in Junoon and Fakira; Rekha who worked with him in Baseraa and Utsav; Nafisa Ali from Junoon; Supriya Pathak from Kalyug and Vijeta; Neetu Singh, in Deewar; Waheeda Rahman, co-star from Kabhi Kabhie, Trishul and Namak Halal; Asha Parekh from Pyar Ka Mausam and Zeenat Aman, his co-star in Satyam Shivam Sundaram.

Hema Malini was also there but she skipped the photo-op. Hema Malini and Shashi Kapoor have worked together in Trishul, Do Aur Do Paanch. After his demise news broke out, Simi Garewal, his Siddhartha co-star tweeted: ''The last of that generation of Kapoors gone. A gentleman and friend gone. An era gone... All that remains are his films...and precious memories..''
