Actor Shammi Kapoor’s Birthday


Today is Actor Shammi Kapoor’s birthday. This article is a listicle of songs Shammi Kapoor’s earlier works. Shammi Kapoor was initially unsuccessful in movies because all the attention was grabbed by his leading ladies in these women-oriented movies. These movies include Rail Ka Dibba (1953) with Madhubala, Naqab (1955) with Madhubala, Laila Majnu (1953) with Nutan, Thokar (1953)  with Shyama, Chor Bazar (1954) with Shyama, Mirza Sahiban (1957) with Shyama, Hum Sab Chor Hain (1956) with Nalini Jaywant, Shama Parwana (1954) with Suraiya and the comic Mem Sahib (1956) with Meena Kumari. None of these movies made him popular. Then came Nasir Hussain’s Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957) and Dil Deke Dekho (1959), which catapulted him to fame with a light-hearted, stylish playboy image. I am one of the craziest fans of Shammi Kapoor Sir. But, I wish I had known him, personally. Happy birthday to you, Shammi Uncle! 🙁
