Shahid pays tribute to Shammi Kapoor

 

In his forthcoming film, Teri Meri Kahaani, Shahid Kapoor pays tribute to the late dancing icon Shammi Kapoor. He says, “I have grown up watching Shammi sir’s films, and have always admired him. I especially loved him in Teesri Manzil (1966) and Kashmir Ki Kali (1964).” Shahid’s upcoming flick 

spans three eras — the 1900s, ’60s and 2012.

Kapoor adds, “Shammi is a style icon for a lot of youngsters even today. For the track set in the ’60s, Kunal (director Kunal Kohli) gave me a video compilation of his films and songs to pick up nuances. Through this track, we are paying homage to the Elvis Presley of India.”

 

The young actor had earlier paid a tribute to Shammi Kapoor at the Zee Awards show, along with Ranbir Kapoor. Teri Meri Kahaani, which also stars Shahid’s reported ex-girlfriend Priyanka Chopra, has the duo sporting three different looks to match the eras, and costumes have been designed by Manish Malhotra and Kunal Rawal.

 

Kohli says, “Shahid’s posture and mannerisms will have traces of Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand, while his dance is inspired by Shammi Kapoor. We have been very particular about not making these references look like spoofs, because we don’t intend to make fun of them.
