I woke up this morning to the most horrible news of Shammi Kapoor jee passing away. I have grown up listening to all the amazing tracks from his films. His collaboration with Mohd.Rafi on most of his songs has left a legacy of Bollywood’s immortal melodies. And I don’t even know where to begin talking about ‘Teesri Manzil’ and 'Kashmir Ki Kali’ - Two of my most absolute favourites.
I have been a big fanboy of the very 'Elvis’, 60’s rebel, dance dude image that Shammi jee impersonates. His image from 'Aaja Aaja’ will remain the face of Bollypop as long as this blog is alive. I deeply mourn the passing away of the legend that was - Shamsher Raj 'Shammi’ Kapoor. R.I.P.
