Once he wrote a letter to his mother complaining about the food being served and also wrote that he would commit suicide if he received such food. In the wake of it, Shashi was taken out of the boarding school.
- He drank alcohol.
- Shashi’s elder brother, Raj Kapoor gave him the nickname ‘Taxi’for different reasons. Whenever he was busy shooting, Shashi used to sleep in his car or a taxi. Whenever Shashi used to pick up and drop his co-stars in his car or taxi. Moreover, Shashi Kapoor always looked like “running away in a taxi” to Raj Kapoor.
- He became utterly famous for his dialogue ‘Mere Paas Maa Hai‘ from the movie ‘Deewar’ (1975).
- While he was a directing ‘Ajooba,’ he used to move around the sets with a stick in his hand. Amitabh Bachchan, also among the star cast, shares that Shashi did so with an intention to use the stick on the actors who misbehaved. However, Shashi never used the stick. Amitabh considers Shashi as the one director who cared for his actors and technicians alike.
- Sharing another anecdote, Shabana Azmi reveals that Shashi used to invest his money only in cinema and theatre and not other commercial businesses.She says, When we went to the Moscow Film Festival, with just eight dollars in foreign exchange, we were all strapped for cash. But despite the presence of bigwigs like FC Mehra and Raj Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor paid the bill.”
- Amitabh Bachchan is credited to saving Shashi’s life when Shashi was wheelchair-ridden because of a fractured leg. Kapoor was conducting a show at Shanmukhananda Hall in Mumbai when a fire broke out and he started crying out for help. It was Bachchan who came to his rescue to save his life.
- In 1978, he along with his wife re-opened Prithvi Theatre which was closed after the death of his father in 1972.
- He never worked on Sunday and spent his whole day with his loving family.
