Shashi Kapoor: A fitting send-off to a gentleman

08 December 2017

To make matters worse, the BBC's video montage later included a clip of Shashi's nephew Rishi Kapoor, with many blasting the channel on social media for their mistake, which completely left Shashi Kapoor out of his own tribute.

As family, friends and fans across the world continue to mourn the death of veteran actor Shashi Kapoor, it is Mumbai Police's tribute tweet to the actor that has got people talking.

Adil Ray, the creator and co-writer of BBC One's Citizen Khan, tweeted: Someone at the BBC thought the brown person in this VT is the same person.

Except the man was in fact Amitabh Bachchan - who is still alive. "BBC must apologise, clearly they have no clue". But to everyone's surprise, Shashi Kapoor was not showed and the visual was cut with Amitabh Bachchan's feature, moving to a clip of Rishi Kapoor.

He added that even then, it would only apply if Trump Jr. and his father had the same attorney, which they reportedly do not . A source familiar with the matter says Goldstone did not talk about the meeting with Trump Jr. after they left Trump Tower.

Kapoor passed away at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai early on December4.

The BBC News at Ten editor Paul Royall has since apologised for the mistake. "#BBCNewsTen is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor".

"The piece did not meet its usual standards and the programme has apologised for any upset".

He was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 2011 and received cinema's prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke award in 2015.
