The Kapoor family at Shashi Kapoor's prayer meet.
The prayer meet for Shashi Kapoor organised by the family at Prithvi Theatre in Mumbai on Thursday gave the late star an emotional and nostalgic send-off. From the several photos from the memorial, it is this picture of those Shashi Kapoor leaves behind that is making everyone a little teary. Four generations of Kapoors crowded into a single frame at the family-led tribute. Shashi Kapoor's sisters-in-law Krishna Raj Kapoor and Neila Devi, who were married to his brothers Raj and Shammi Kapoor, represented his generation. From the generation below were Shashi Kapoor's children Karan, Kunal and Jennifer, and his nephews and nieces - Randhir, Rima and Ritu. Their kids Karisma, Adar and Armaan were also there, as were Rishi Kapoor's wife Neetu and Sanjana's husband Valmik Thapar.
Shashi Kapoor was remembered at the prayer meet with a slideshow of pictures and songs from his films, reports mid-day.

Shashi Kapoor, who spent the last few years confined to a year and had been on dialysis for a kidney ailment, died in Mumbai's Kokilaben Ambani Hospital on Monday. He was 79. Mr Kapoor was cremated with state honours with a three-gun salute by Mumbai Police the next day. Amitabh Bachchan, who was Shashi Kapoor's co-star in films like Deewar and Namak Halaal, braved Cyclone Ockhi to attend the cremation as did Shah Rukh Khan and other stars.
