I waited two years, then they asked me 'Do you still want to?' I said, 'Yes' and they said okay." In 2012, Shashi’s son Kunal Kapoor spoke about the loss his dad felt after passing of his mother. He said, “It’s been 28 years since she died but I don’t think dad ever completely recovered after her death. She died when she was 50 and he was 46. He could have remarried but for him that was not an option. They were soulmates. Every relationship has its share of problems but their connection was rare and unusually strong."
