Mumbai: As brothers-in-arms or partners-in- crime, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has shared fond memories of spending his life – both onscreen and offscreen – with veteran actor Shashi Kapoor.
The megastar, in his personal blog, remembered feeling a little uncertain as an aspiring actor about his future in the film industry with the likes of charming actor like Shashi around. "I said to myself, as very uncertain thoughts raced through my mind of wanting to become a film actor, that, with men like him around, I stood no chance at all..."
Bachchan recalled coming face-to-face with Shashi in a glitzy magazine, which announced his debut in films.
The actor, who was fondly called 'babbua' by Shashi, said he knew the veteran actor had been ailing for a long time but he avoided visiting him.
"I had visited him on occasion in Hospital during some of the times he had been hospitalised earlier... But I never went to see him again...I never ever wanted to see this beautiful friend in the state I saw him in
