- Govinda got advice from Shashi Kapoor way back in 1986
- It was during Ilzaam, which was Govinda's debut
- Shashi Kapoor played a cop in the movie
Here is Govinda's post:
My career's first film ILZAAM was with Shashi Ji . And he touched my heart the very first day with him when he saw me dancing on stage in the shot as a senior he called me & his first wise words to me have stayed with me ever since... 'Kisi din Tum Unchaai chuoge. Apni health ka khyaal rakhna. Be very professional'. He was so kind & nice to me. I pray to God may his soul rest in peace
By all accounts, this was typical of the gentlemanly Shashi Kapoor who was as adored by his co-stars as he was by his public. In 2015, when Mr Kapoor received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, his Satyam Shivam Sundaram heroine Zeenat Aman told NDTV, "For me personally, he was one of the nicest co-stars to have ever worked with. He was always cheerful, always happy. In all the years that I worked with him, I never saw him lose his temper, or be unpleasant or untoward. I'm just so happy for him and so delighted for the family."
