Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor, 79, passed away on 4th of December after a long battle with several illnesses. Actress Juhi Chawla revealed certain things which she experienced during her encounter with late actor Shashi Kapoor towards the end of his life.

Reminiscensing her friendship with the 'Kabhie Kabhie' actor, she said, "Unfortunately, I have never had the opportunity of working with him. When I was a kid I remember meeting him while he was shooting for a movie and got his autograph. When I entered the film industry people used to ask me ‘Who I wanted to work with', and I always said, 'Shashi Kapoor', as I found him very cute, charming with a naughty side. When I started doing selective films, I used to go and meet him just to catch up."

She also ruminated her meeting with the actor while he was in hospital by saying, "In his last days, when I met him, he would not even remember who I was. I used to tell him 'Hi, I am Juhi,' but it did not ring any bell. He was suffering for some years, and in some ways, it is a relief. But on the other hand, we have lost one a gem of a person and one of the finest actors."

With his demise, the country has lost one more star of the golden era. May his soul rest in peace.
