  • Shashi Kapoor funeral : Bollywood celebrities bids adieu to the evergreen actor

The BBC faced backlash on social media with users claiming the same mistake wouldn't have been made if a white star had died.

"Worse still, neither of them are the deceased actor Huw refers to".

Except the man was in fact Amitabh Bachchan - who is still alive.

In reporting the death of Bollywood star Shashi Kapoor last night the BBC used footage from films starring two Indian actors - neither of whom were Kapoor himself.




Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor's demise on Monday is being grieved by all Bollywood fans in India as well as outside the country. But to everyone's surprise, Shashi Kapoor was not showed and the visual was cut with Amitabh Bachchan's feature, moving to a clip of Rishi Kapoor. "Clearly they have no clue".

Neetu, recalled a treasured and cherished memory of Shashi Kapoor as a child by sharing an iconic photograph of the actor with his father and Kapoor patriarch Prithviraj Kapoor.

Kapoor died at the age of 79 at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai, on Monday evening. BBC news editor Paul Royall eventually apologised on Twitter. Yesterday, a news channel was trolled for writing "Shashi Tharoor" instead of "Shashi Kapoor" in a tweet about his death.

He was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 2011 and received cinema's prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke award in 2015.
