New Delhi: Bollywood woke up to an unfortunate news of veteran actor Shashi Kapoor's sudden demise. The legend of an actor passed away on December 4 evening after losing his battle to a prolonged illness.

He breathed his last at Mumbai's Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. The entire Hindi film fraternity was shocked to hear about the noted actor's death and so while some rushed to be with the family, others left work midway and stopped the shoot as a mark of respect for the Kapoor senior.

Raveena Tandon took to Instagram and posted a rare picture of the legendary star with a caption, "Stopped the shoot on the sets of super dancer the minute we heard . All stood in silence to pay respects . Deeply saddened to hear about this.. One of the most finest stylish actor in the industry... You shall always remain in our hearts... #ShashiKapoor ‬RIP."

Raveena was shooting an episode of TV show 'Super Dancer Chapter 2' when the news broke out. The shoot was stopped midway to pay tribute to veteran actor-filmmaker Shashi Kapoor. 

Actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra, filmmaker Anurag Basu and choreographer Geeta Kapur, who are seen as judges on "Super Dancer Chapter 2", stopped the shooting of the show in-between when they heard about Shashi Kapoor's demise on Monday and stood in silence to pay homage.

Also present on the set were actors Govinda and Raveena Tandon.

Shashi Kapoor breathed his last at 5.20 p.m. at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Monday after a period of hospitalisation. He was 79.
