Shashi Kapoor would have been 83 today. On the late veteran actor's birth anniversary, former actress Tina Ambani, who co-starred with him in a couple of films in the Eighties, remembered him by sharing a heart-warming post on Instagram. Sharing a still from one of their films - which appears to be from their 1985 film Alag Alag - Tina Ambani described Shashi Kapoor as a "debonair, handsome, erudite and fabulous" man and wrote: "They just don't make them like Shashi Kapoor anymore. Debonair, handsome, erudite and fabulous. Miss your presence and the old days. Toasting your birthday." In the throwback photo, Shashi Kapoor looks handsome in a white shirt and blue blazer while Tina Ambani can be seen sporting a red outfit. Alag Alag also featured late actor Rajesh Khanna in the lead role.
Shashi Kapoor and Tina Ambani also worked together in the 1980 film Ek Do Teen Chaar. Check out her post here:
