A leading International news channel had to apologize for mistaking Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor for Shashi Kapoor.
Mumbai: Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday evening, but unfortunately after the Shashi Tharoor goof-up, now an international leading news channel mixed up Shashi with Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.
While trying to pay tribute to the late actor, this news channel broadcasted Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor’s songs.
This enraged many fans and people in general and they called this blunder lack of knowledge and research.
Shocking to note @BBC insults a veteran actor Shashi Kapoor by showing clips of @SrBachchan & @chintskap whilst reporting his death today!!!@BBC must apologize!!! Clearly they have no clue.— GABBAR (@Gabbar_food) December 4, 2017

Lack of knowledge & research...if you dont know the news in and out dont telecast....reporting standards should be strict and punishable— Swapna Kashyap (@SwapnaKashyap) December 5, 2017
