Mumbai: Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday evening and not a day after the Shashi Tharoor incident, an international leading news channel made a big goof-up.
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.
RIP Shashi Kapoor 🙏🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/XMT4QJCy53— 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
A journalist from the news channel had to eventually apologize for this mistake, calling it his unusual standards.
#BBCNewsTen is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor. Not our usual standards and I apologise for any upset.— Paul Royall (@paulroyall) December 4, 2017
