Shashi Kapoor, the star actor of the golden era of Bollywood, was ‘killed’ on Twitter on Monday afternoon!!! Yes, rumours about Shashi Kapoor being "dead" spread like a wildfire on twitter, but thankfully, our very own Shashi Kapoor ji was 'alive’ within an hour. The veteran actor is battling for life at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai. 

On Twitter, many even paid  tributes to the Bollywood legend. India's very famous English Daily, even declared Kapoor’s ‘death’ on Twitter, however, later issued an apology.

Shashi Kapoor acted in several 1970s hits like Deewar and ‘Namak Halal. Amitabh Bachchan, who played the role of Shashi’s brother in Deewar, visited him in hospital recently.
