A small group of Pakistanis here on Wednesday held a candle-light vigil to honour late Bollywood icon Shashi Kapoor, whose ancestors hailed from Peshawar, Geo News reported.

Shashi Kapoor, who died on Monday in Mumbai, was the younger brother of the legendary Raj Kapoor who came from a family which had migrated from Peshawar to Mumbai.

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 Raj and Shashi Kapoor’s grandfather in 1918.
