Slideshow - The Unforgettable Shammi Kapoor

Tum Mujhe Yun Bhula Na Paaoge!

“Yahoo”. The avalanche-causing yelp that unshackled the Indian hero from the stereotypes of the 1950s and introduced a new flamboyant onscreen hero still resonates today, half a century after Shammi Kapoor rolled down the snow clad slopes in the 1961 movie Junglee.

The young man with fair complexion, green eyes and lots of energy also stepped out from the shadow of his illustrious dad Prithviraj Kapoor and elder brother Raj Kapoor, to carve a niche for himself. Not that Shammi Kapoor did not try to imitate them when he left his education at Ruia College in Mumbai mid-way to pursue a career in acting in early 50s and saw one flop after another until ladyluck smiled on him with the Nasir Hussain film Tumsa Nahin Dekha in 1957.

The movie went on to be a hit, and put Shammi Kapoor on the ladder to fame. Over the years, Shammi Kapoor created an image of a charming hero who dived and jumped and danced the Elvis Presley jig and serenaded the lovely ladies while doing so. In his films, he was a drummer, a singer, a Casanova, the quintessential loverboy of the 60s.

Shammi Kapoor’s last years were spent struggling with renal problems. But even in sickness, he brimmed with hope and humour. On August 14, he left us for a better place, leaving behind a legacy that will live on for a long time to come.

ApunKaChoice pays a heartfelt tribute to Shammi Kapoor by recapturing some of his most memorable cinematic moments.
