New Delhi: The Kapoors got together over the weekend to celebrate the 80th birth anniversary of Shashi Kapoor, who died in December last year. Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan reportedly hosted a dinner to mark the special day, a photo from which has been doing the rounds on the Internet. In attendance were Kareena's husband Saif Ali Khan, father Randhir Kapoor, his sister Rima Jain, Kareena's cousins Armaan and Adar Jain, Shashi Kapoor's son Kunal Kapoor and several other Kapoors. It's always a delight to see the Kapoors getting together, like during the annual Christmas brunch or for birthday celebrations. In an interview with mid-day, just days after Shashi Kapoor died, Randhir Kapoor explained why fam-jamming together is essential for the Kapoors.

"My uncle (Shashi Kapoor) was a family man and always believed in celebrations. In fact, he had told us that we should not mourn his death and instead, celebrate his life. I think his kids are just doing that and are paying an ode to him. Like my father, Raj Kapoor said, 'The show must go on'," he said.
