Actor Ranbir Kapoor broke in tears after the death of his
granduncle Shammi Kapoor. The actor reportedly apart from his
family is close to Rajiv Kapoor, however during the shoots of
Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar, Ranbir learnt how many things he
had in common with the real rockstar. His death has left the actor
Ranbir apparently wept like a baby after the tragedy, surprising
his family even. Interacting with Shammi during the film's shoot
opened a whole new world to Ranbir. Interestingly, the young Kapoor
restrained crying when his grandmother (Neetu Singh's mother) died
last year. The actor was very close to him. However, after losing
Shammi, its like losing soul mate for Ranbir.
Though the actor has left for Kolkata to shoot for Anurag Basu's
Barfee, Ranbir has gone into an introspective mode. The
actor has been deeply affected by the huge loss.
