Sorry to hear about Shammi Kapoor. Remember seeing him attend a workshop at an Apple store in NYC, not long ago. Full of childlike wonder.

Years ago when I worked w/ a newspaper, Shammi Kapoor posed in a Santa suit & let us take pictures. He was fearless, not easily embarrassed.

Shammi kapoor's last film will be with grand nephew ranbir kapoorin rockstar. Where he reportedly plays his music teacher. Appropriate!
