Join us in paying homage to this powerhouse of a performer by revisiting some of her iconic performances. Join us in celebrating this phenomenon called Sridevi!

Remembering Shashi Kapoor

Shashi Kapoor as he was fondly called by his counterparts is Indian cinema's answer to Roger Moore. In a career spanning more than half a decade, Shashi Kapoor left no stone untouched with his versatile performances and showmanship. Bestowed with India's 3rd highest civilian honour the Padma Bhushan, this giant leaves behind a tall legacy of path-breaking work as inspiration for the future generations to follow. His collaborations with Amitabh Bachchan and Merchant Ivory hold a special place in the vast cinematic galaxy of India. A legend who warmed our hearts every time he appeared on screen with his trademark impish smile and caring eyes. A true superstar for the ages!
