Shammi Kapoor becomes immortal

One of my favorite actors, Shammi Kapoor, passed away this morning.  We have his moves, his movies and his memory to keep him immortal.

We’ve seen all his movies, from the earliest ones – where he wasn’t the light-hearted fun Shammi that comes to mind when one usually thinks of him.

Our favorite family movie, though, is Teesri Manzil, although the moment I say that, several other films come to mind. But here’s one of our all-time favorite songs from the movie. Oh, how we loved to watch him dance. Although he had some signature moves, it seemed like no one move could ever be repeated.

And another from Bluff Master. Just look at him enjoying himself!

    Kim, he was a totally stylish actor, graceful yet fun and uninhibited. “Flamboyant” just about describes him. He is my favorite actor of that era. He is credited with the original Yahoo! 🙂
