Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday conferred a prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award on maestro actor-filmmaker Shashi Kapoor during a Prithvi Theatre.
Due to Kapoor’s ill health, he could not transport to a collateral for a endowment rite on 3 May. So, apportion Jaitley flew in to Mumbai to consult a endowment on him.
The 77-year-old came on a entertainment on a wheelchair, though he smiled and folded his hands in bend after receiving a honour — a third for Indian cinema’s renouned Kapoor family.
The actor’s name immediately started trending on amicable media and with currently being Mother’s Day, Kapoor’s ‘mere paas matriarch hai‘ discourse from Deewar seems to be Twitter favourite:
It’s great, bestowing a Dadasaheb Phalke endowment on Shashi Kapoor during Prithvi. There couldn’t be a improved place!
