  • Shashi Kapoor prayer meet: Rekha, Hema Malini and Karisma Kapoor in attendance

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 Shashi Kapoor's grandfather in 1918.

The meet was attended by several people from different walks of life, including cinema lovers.

Besides the Kapoor family, actors Dilip Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Vinod Khanna, Amjad Khan and Anil Kapoor have roots in Peshawar.

Shashi Kapoor's father Prithviraj Kapoor hails from Peshawar, which is now a part of Pakistan.

In 1942, the family had sold the house and migrated to Mumbai.

Despite leaving Peshawar, the Kapoors always fondly remembered the city. Raj Kapoor's sons, Rishi and Randhir continue to work in films even as the fourth generation, led by Kareena and Ranbir Kapoor, rules the industry today.

Zia recounted meeting the "Junoon" actor in 2014, when he visited India and found the actor's response cordial.

The attendees of the event included Karisma Kapoor, Ranshir Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Padmini Kolhapure, Dimple Kapadia, Kunal Kemmu and Soha Ali Khan, Kabir Bedi, Waheeda Rehman, Rani Mukherji, Poonam Dhillon, Aadar Jain, Kiran Rao, Suniel Shetty, Ashutosh Gowarikar, Rekha, Neelam and other members of the Kapoor family.
