He will be remembered as the Handsomest of them all n he truly was..but I will always cherish him as the nicest,warmest n most generous of them all..Person’s true character is revealed when he is nice,kind n warm to those whom he absolutely doesn’t Need to..and that was what he was to me as “my first producer” in my first Hindi film as a child artist “Kalyug”.. They don’t make them like him anymore❤️ RIP Shashi Kapoor 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
