SHAMMI KAPOOR: TUMSA NAHI DEKHA
" Bandalbaz-Bluffmaster-Badtameez"you were branded,
All other copy-cats could not but be stranded.
" Kashmir Ki Kali" came to spend " An Evening in Paris",
" China Town" you left with a " Zameer" you did cherish.
Some might call you " Junglee" and others as " Janwar",
But, you were " Brahmchari" and by " Andaaz", a "Professor".
" Dil Deke Dekho" was the cry of the " Prince",
"Dil Tera Diwana"was the reply of your kins.
" Jeevan Jyoti' is what jayegi ek din,
It is the law " Vidhata" does mean.
On August 14, ended your jeevan-rekha,
Shammi-ji, we vow, really, " Tumsa Nahi Dekha".» read full biography

The boiling-blistering scene "Aasman se aya farista" must have chilled the blood of Shakti Samant. Only a true friend can stake his life for the sake of friendship.
