The late actor's colleagues and family members were the first ones to arrive at the prayer meet.

Upon hearing of the legends passing, his nephew Rishi Kapoor, Bollywood stars like Saif Ali Khan and others who were away from the city, flew back down to the city after hearing about Shashi Kapoor's death. But looks like fans from across the border are paying their tribute to Shashi Kapoor. Attending his prayer meet were a number of actors from the Bollywood industry of the likes of Rani Mukherjee, Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Randhir Kapoor, Jeetendra, Rakesh Roshan, Karisma Kapoor, Hema Malini, Rekha, Kiran Rao, and more. "He was on dialysis for several years", Randhir Kapoor told PTI. Armaan and Adaar Jain - sons of Raj Kapoor's daughter Reema Jain - were also present.

The entire nation lost a gem when legendary actor Shashi Kapoor passed away recently.

Shashi Kapoor died at Mumbai's Kokilaben Ambani Hospital last Monday. Shashi Kapoor's father Prithviraj Kapoor wanted to have a permanent place for his theatre group and had even acquired a property in Juhu in Mumbai.

Mumbai: Ranbir Kapoor has been training intensively for his much-awaited movie, the "Dutt biopic", which is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt.

In 2011, he was awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Indian government.
