Veteran actor Shammi Kapoor dies
Veteran actor Shammi Kapoor, who ruled the late 1950s and 1960s with his unique style and versatile range, passed away on Sunday at the Breach Candy Hospital here, family sources said.
He was 79. He is survived by his wife Neela Devi, son Aditya Raj and daughter Kanchan Desai.
According to the sources, he was on dialysis for the last few years and was undergoing the procedure at least thrice a week. He was on Saturday admitted to the ICU of the hospital.
The actor, who made his debut in Bollywood in 1953, when the film ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ was released, carved out a niche for himself with the super hit “Junglee” in 1961.
His new image took ground and his subsequent films were all in this genre later.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
