The actor’s body was wrapped in Indian national flag and it was given a three-gun salute by the Mumbai police. The police officers even bent down and paid respect to Shashi Kapoor. Many people were confused by the National honor given to the actor. As in India, such honor has always been given to present or former Prime Minister, President, central ministers, and chief ministers.
People who immensely contribute in the field of art, politics, commerce, science, and law including Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan, and Bharat Ratana awardees are also paid respect in this way by the government.
Shashi Kapoor was an actor who will be remembered generations after generations. Do you think the same? Do share your views in the comments section below.
