Shashi Kapoor's nephew and actor Randhir Kapoor too confirmed the news. 

"He has passed away," Randhir told IANS.

Actress Simi Garewal tweeted: "Am deeply saddened by the passing away of my co-star ShashiKapoor. The last of that generation of Kapoors gone. A gentleman and friend gone. An era gone.. All that remains are his films...and precious memories.. ?? RIP Shashi-ji."
