Delhi: Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, an ardent Shammi Kapoor fan, says he will introduce the magic of the late actor, who passed away on Sunday, to his two sons - Hrehaan, five, and Hridhaan, three.

"Legends like Shammi Kapoor do not die...he lives, inside us, around us. A journey such as his should be rejoiced, not mourned. Of course, we'll miss his physical presence terribly, but his magic lives on within you and me...and I will make sure my sons know the superstar their dad admired and loved the most," Hrithik said in a press statement on Monday.

Shammi, who enthralled Hindi cinema buffs with movies like "An Evening in Paris", "China Town", "Kashmir Ki Kali", "Janwar" and "Junglee", was on dialysis for the last few days. At 79, he breathed his last early Sunday morning. He was cremated on Monday.

Hrithik, the son of Rakesh Roshan, says "Rest In Peace" would not be the right thing to pray for the dancing king.
"For you I don't want to say R.I.P, but rather D.I.H ...dancing in heaven now...I love you," he added.
