Shammi Kapoor's ashes immersed in Jhelum, J & KTwenty days after his death, veteran actor Shammi Kapoor's ashes were immersed in Jhelum river in Jammu and Kashmir, said his son Aditya Raj Kapoor on Saturday.
"He (Shammi Kapoor) was in love with Kashmir. So we immersed his ashes in Jhelum," said Aditya Raj in Srinagar.
"We also planted a sapling at Lalit Hotel where my father used to stay whenever he visited Kashmir," he said.
According to reports, before the ritual, Kapoor's ashes were taken to Dal Lake in a shikara as he used to love the boat ride there.
Kapoor's son Aditya Raj, daughter Kanchan, Adtiya's wife Preeti, his co-actors Asha Parekh, Vinod Khanna and filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra were present at the ritual.
Earlier on Aug 15, Kapoor's last rites were performed by Aditya Raj at Ban Ganga crematorium in Mumbai, where his first wife Geeta Bali was cremated in 1965.
