Indian veteran actor Shashi Kapoor has left the world at an age of 79 with some incomplete wishes, among which, the biggest one was to work with legendry Dilip Kumar.

Veteran Bollywood actor and producer Shashi Kapoor has passed away on Monday after prolonged illness, according to media reports. Prithvi Theatre was built by Shashi and his wife Jennifer Kendel in memory of his father Prithviraj Kapoor and was a place very close to his heart.

Pictures from the meet were shared online.

Almost 24 hours ago, the Kapoor family was mourning the death of Shashi. Jeetendra and Rakesh Roshan arrived at the venue together. Other celebrities who were photographed arriving at the residence included Rani Mukerji and Kajol.

It was also learnt that Shashi Kapoor used to watch Dilip's movies very carefully and had always admired his acting skills.

His best known performances as a child actor were in "Aag" (1948) and "Awaara" (1951), where he played the younger version of the character played by Raj Kapoor.

Padma Bhushan in 2011 and Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2015, Shashi got the best of what the fraternity and the government had to offer.

He made his debut as a leading man in the 1961 film "Dharmputra" and went on to appear in more than 116 films during the 70s and until the mid 80s.
