  • Candle vigil held in the memory of veteran actor Shashi Kapoor

In what could be seen as a reflection of his popularity across the border, tributes were paid to veteran actor Shashi Kapoor at a memorial held in Peshawar.

The Kapoor family's ancestral home is located in Kissa Khwani Bazaar of Peshawar's old city in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and was built by Raj and Shashi Kapoor's grandfather in 1918. In 1942, the head of Kapoor family sold the house and migrated to Mumbai.

It was the love for his roots that prompted Kapoor to visit the city back in 2000.

Several film personalities such as Amitabh Bachchan, Salim Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Supriya Pathak, Shakti Kapoor and Suresh Oberoi attended the star's cremation, held in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Eli Manning will start again for the Giants
That's when Gruden said he might actually be interested in the job, but with one catch: The Giants would have to keep Eli Manning. He said that he was going to think about and talk with the coaches, but his gut said that I would be the starting quarterback.

Pakistani historian Mohammad Ibrahim Zia, who has written Peshawar Ke Fankar, a book on Hindi cinema stars hailing from Peshawar, spoke about meeting Shashi in 2014 and how the Indian actor hosted them in his house.

Despite leaving Peshawar, the Kapoors always fondly remembered the city.

He said that Kapoor was happy to make the acquaintance of the guests from Peshawar in his Mumbai home. His colleagues and family members were the first one to arrive at the prayer meet.
