It couldn’t have been a better 77th birthday gift for Shashi Kapoor than the Govt. bestowing him with the biggest National film award- the Dada Saheb Phalke Award. Born as Balbir Raj Prithviraj Kapoor on 18 March 1938, the youngest son of the late Prithviraj Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor made his debut in his eldest brother’s debut film Aag in 1948. Since then he has acted in many films and also produced and directed them. He was conferred the Padma Bhushan in 2011 and is the third recipient in the family after his father Prithviraj Kapoor (1972, posthumously) and eldest brother Raj Kapoor (1987) to be honored with the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke Award for contribution towards Indian cinema.
