From our Archives a conversation with the great Indian legend, Shammi Kapoor Sahaab

As I go back to the time of the interview, I just have one wish to make like I did then , and that was to freeze the time, to hold on to the time , the era, the Shammi Kapoor Era….the magic continued I am sure in all those peoples lives which were touched by the wand of the legend called Shammi Kapoor…
Yes, he happened to be my fav star of all times..I had grown watching his films…and it was a moment out of the blue for me to be able to speak with him..
The interview happened when he was at the fag end of his life..but little did we know then…he was still so full of life.¬†He counted the days of a week that he would be in the hospital for Dialysis and asked me to call him on any of the remaining ones…Great people are great because they have greatness engraved in them…on the scheduled day, he got delayed by an hour as he was busy with another interview, but made it a point to come on the phone to tell me¬†personally how “sorry” he was and that he would be back in an hour..
Back he certainly was, apologetic again for the delay ….we have much to learn from you Shammi Kapoor Sahaab and you will always remain in our hearts…always be my fav star of all times…
Do tune in for the interview today on MeraSangeet Gold and lets all take a peep into yesteryears, into Shammi Kapoor Sahaab’s films, his life…and as I said then, I say these very famous words again, “thehar ye dil ki bekhudi, itna tou dekh lene de
woh khud tashreef laaye hain, yaa unki yaad aayi hai”…
