Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor conferred with Dadasaheb Phalke Award

Recently, veteran actor Shashi Kapoor was honoured with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award by Union information and broadcasting minister Arun Jaitley. The Kapoor family and the film industry came together to grace the event held at Prithvi theatre.


The ceremony was flagged off by Ranbir Kapoor, who also gave the narration for his grand-uncle's illustrious cinema journey over the years. Rishi Kapoor chose the occasion to recite his uncle's famous lines, "Mere paas maa hai", which drew tremendous applause from the audience.


Earlier, Shashi could not travel to New Delhi when the National Awards were presented by President Pranab Mukherjee on May 3, because of ill health. The actor, who is wheelchair bound and has been ailing from kidney problems, is the third from his family to get the award, after father Prithvi Raj Kapoor and elder brother Raj Kapoor.


Born in 1938, Shashi hit the spotlight from the age of four acting in plays directed and produced by his father, while travelling with Prithvi Theatre. He started acting in films as a child in the late 1940s.His best known performances as child artist were in 'Aag' and 'Awaara' where he played the younger version of the character played by Raj Kapoor. Shashi Kapoor also worked as assistant director in the 1950s.


He made his debut as a leading man in the 1961 film 'Dharmputra' and went on to star in more than 116 films during 60s, 70s and until the mid 80s. Some of his memorable films include 'Deewar', 'Kabhie Kabhie', 'Namak Halal', 'Kaala Patthar' and others.


He was honoured with Padma Bhushan in 2011.
