Veteran Hindi film actor Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday after prolonged illness, according to media reports. He was 79.

“Yes he has passed away. He had kidney problem since several years. He was on dialysis for several years,” Randhir Kapoor told PTI.

Kapoor, who started his career as a child actor in his father Prithviraj Kapoor‘s plays, was well-known for his roles in films like ‘Deewaar’ (1975), ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (1978), ‘Junoon’ (1978), ‘Shaan’ (1980), and ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982).
