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.

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.
