BBC uses clips of wrong Bollywood stars in tribute to Shashi Kapoor

Share

The entire country mourned the loss and Bollywood was all about giving tributes to the thespian. Shashi Kapoor acted in over 150 films and his character left a stamp on the audience even if the film failed at the box office which speaks volumes of his acting skills. Moreover, the channel ran two clips of two different actors and we wonder, how the channel could not differentiate between the two.

Hang on @bbcnews Shashi Kapoor has died not Amitabh Bachan or Rishi Kapoor, who you've weirdly used to illustrate the story.

But neither of the men shown were Kapoor - one was his nephew Rishi and the other was actor Amitabh Bachchan, a BBC report accepted on Tuesday. "The piece did not meet its usual standards and the programme has apologized for any upset". And many amongst those to criticise it were the corporation's own stars. Worse still, neither of them are the deceased actor Huw refers to.

His publicity team shared that the Tuesday show, as well as the two remaining Florida shows, will be rescheduled. In the tweet, he mentions being "sorry that we couldn't finish out the last few dates of the tour".

And finally, BBC rendered an apology by issuing a statement which said, "BBC News at Ten is very sorry the wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor".

The actress, along with father Randhir Kapoor were spotted at Shashi Kapoor's residence late Monday after hearing of the tragic news. They also apologised later on.

Paliwal also recalls an earlier visit of the actor to Haridwar in the first half of 1950s, when Shashi Kapoor accompanied his father Prithvi Raj, brothers Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor had come for enactment of a theatrical presentation at Chitra Talkies near Shiv Moorti square.
