Shashi Kapoor, the iconic Bollywood star who passed away in Mumbai, India, recently has been remembered in Peshawar, a town in Pakistan where his family is originally from.

Pictures circulating in social media show people gathered to honor Kapoor as the “Pride of Peshawar” adding that the city will never forget him.

The Kapoor dynasty has a house in Peshawar, Pakistan, which was constructed between 1918 and 1922 by Dewan Basheswarnath Kapoor, the father of Prithviraj Kapoor, the first member of the family to enter the film industry.

The Kapoors shifted to India after the 1947 partition.
