The actor-filmmaker Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday evening at a hospital in Mumbai. In a bizarre incident, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was getting the condolence calls in his office.

It was reported that the mistake occurred after a news channel’s social media platform Twitter handle wrote, Shashi Tharoor instead of Shashi Kapoor.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor moved to Twitter and posted, “We’re getting condolence calls in the office. Reports of my demise are, if not exaggerated, at least premature. #ShashiKapoor”.

But it seems like the congressman has no problem with this mistake, where posted, “Thanks. No problem. Mistakes happen. Glad to be able to crack a smile at a tragic moment”.


In another tweet, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor pays tribute to legendary actor and wrote, “I feel a part of me is gone. A great actor, smart, cosmopolitan, impossibly handsome and w/a name that was often confused w/mine. (My office got two calls from journalists today about my reportedly serious ill-health!) I will miss Shashi Kapoor. Condolences to his family and all his fans”.
