Tum mujhe yu bhula na paaoge


How I wish I was born in you Era, Shammi ji. I would have watched your movies first day first show!
How adorable you seem, when you romanticize with your leading ladies. The naughtiest actor ever, in your era, you became a prime example of a brat-cum-lover.
ShamsherRaj Kapoor is no more. He was a legend, an actor different from his peers!
His songs have always been a part of our growing up phase. Mom's favorite hero was Shammi Kapoor. He still is.
He was our favorite too. The smile on his face, the forceful attempts to let his hair remain on his forehead, the askance, the famous style of dancing, his gestures, the look, his expressions, demeanor, were all class apart.
Even today, if we hear "Aaj kal tere mere pyaar ke charche" or "Tareef karu kya uski"  or “Aaja aaja main hu pyaar tera”, we feel like tapping a foot and singing along.
He has left behind beautiful movies and a great a work for us to appreciate.
My top 5 favorite songs featuring Shammi ji are


     5. Baar Baar dekho hazaar baar dekho
ye dekhne ki cheez hai humara dilruba
Taali ho...

4. Badan pe sitaare lapete hue
oh jaane tamanna kidhar ja rahi ho
zara paas aao to chain aa jaaye..


3. Ehsaan Tera hoga mujhpar
dil chahta hai wo kehne do
mujhe tumse mohabbat ho gayi hai
mujhe palkon ki chhaon me rehne do..


2. Ye chand sa roshan chehra zulfon ka rang sunhera
ye jheel si neeli aankhein koi raaz hai inme gehra
Taareef karu kya uski jisne tumhe banaya..


 1. Tumne mujhe Dekha Hokar meherbaan
Jhuk gayi ye zameen Tham gaya Aasmaan
Jaaneman Jaane jaan
Tumne mujhe Dekha..

RIP, Shammi Kapoor - Tumse Achha Koun Hai!!
