Shammi Kapoor songs we love

Think Shammi Kapoor and you are bound to think of his dances. For an actor who didn’t study dance formally, that’s quite an achievement, isn’t it? He has done a jig in his last appearance too – in grand nephew Ranbir Kapoor’s Rockstar. Ranbir may play the title role in the film, but for us it is Shammi who will always be the true rockstar. Hey, he wasn’t known as the Elvis Presley of India for nothing!  We list five of his dances that are our favourites. Are they his best? We don’t know, but as we said, they are the ones we love the most

Song: Dil ke jharoke mein

Film: Brahmachari

Yes, we know he doesn’t dance at all in this song. Still wondering why we chose this one? ’Cause it’s a difficult one. He has to convey his emotions only through his facial expressions, while he pretends to play the piano. No hands, no legs, just his face. How tough is that!
