    Shammi Kapoor must have been one of the most pressing mourners over the death of Shakti Samant. Both Shakti and Shammi gave a number of super-hit films like "Kashmir ki Kali", "An Evening in Paris", and "Paagla Kahinka". In "An Evening in Paris", Shammi gave a daring helicopter-shot notwithstanding Shakti's insist for a dummy. 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.

    Like his elder brother Raj, Shammi Kapoor too had an ear for music. Shanker-Jaikishan could compose music very much in consort with the postures, gestures and mannerisms of Shammi. In case of Teesri Manzil, he was initially reluctant about R.D Burman. Subsequently, when the songs were made, the overwhelmed Shammi said to R.D "Your music is going to set a trend in the film-world". Time has been the witness, how apt his prediction was.

    Once Nasiruddin Shah was asked about his favourite actor, and unhesitatingly, he pronounced the name "Shammi Kapoor". In front of camera and crew it is not a jolly job to turn into Junglee-Janwar-Battamij. While giving shots, it is easier to be serious but harder for an actor to be easy. Shammi could do it. Though branded as the "Yaahoo" star, his madness( his own style) maddened the lion's share of the cine-goers.
