Veteran Dharmendra share heartfelt picture of Late Shashi Kapoor”

Residents of the city of Peshawar in Pakistan, paid tribute to the actor as a crowd of locals gathered and lit candles outside the actor's ancestral home, Kapoor Haveli, which is located in the Kissa Khwani Bazaar area of the old city.

On Monday evening's News at Ten, two video clips were played as presenter Huw Edwards announced the Indian actor had died aged 79. Even Bollywood biggies like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Kajol, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor reached Kapoor's residence as soon as the news of his demise was out.

The programme's editor Paul Royall apologised on Twitter for the mistake shortly after the bulletin aired. His elder son Kunal Kapoor was by his bedside when he passed away while his daughter Sanjana and his younger son Karan rushed back from the USA as soon as they heard the news. "Not our usual standards and I apologise for any upset", he tweeted.

The legendary actor worked in over 175 films as an actor. He was also awarded the third highest civilian honour - Padmabhushan - by the government in 2011. How one could forget when the charming actor playing the role of cop Ravi in blockbuster Deewar confidently says, "Mere Pas Maa Hai" to his brother bragging about all the wealth?

Shashi was the widower of Jennifer Kendal (sister of actress Felicity Kendal), and the father of Karan Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor and Sanjana Kapoor.
