    He mesmerized us with his performances in films like Kabhi Kabhie, Deewar among others. And today, one of the members of the Kapoor dynasty of the Indian cinema, Shashi Kapoor celebrates his 78th birthday.
    While birthdays in Bollywood call for big celebrations; for Shashi Kapoor, birthdays are not
    celebrated with that fanfare.
    Armaan Jain, the grandson of Shashi Kapoor says, “For Shashi nanaji, birthdays or anniversaries don’t count as much as Christmas does. That festival is like a big party. He considers Christmas as a festive occasion than birthdays.”
    On being asked about the way in which veteran actor Shashi’s birthday is celebrated at the Kapoor household, Arman shares, “Well usually they call for a family gathering and nanaji’s favourite Chinese food is served for everyone!”
    Echoing Armaan’s words, Sanjana Kapoor, Shashi’s daughter too says that nothing special as such is being planned for her father’s birthday. “I am not even going to be there in Mumbai, will be out of the country,” says Sanjana.
    Recollecting a birthday bash which Armaan attended some 10 years ago, he says, “The family had a sort of get together at Kamling, a Chinese restaurant in Churchgate (Mumbai). Nanaji loves the food from this place, they keep ordering for home delivery as well.”
    Armaan says that the Christmas party, on the other hand, is a must and one just cannot miss it. “On Christmas, they have the traditional turkey lunch. They also make a special custard pudding out of brandy cream. Considering it to have alcohol content, only 18 years and above guests are allowed to eat it.”
    The Christmas influence at Shashi Kapoor’s household comes from the actor’s wife, Jennifer Kendal, who’s a British.
