RIP Shammi Kapoor


Bollywood screen legend Shammi Kapoor passed away earlier today. I remember watching some of his films as a child. The song and dance sequences were always great. Although he was dubbed as the Elvis Presley of India, Bollywood, he once said,

"The truth is I could never learn to dance. I even tried coaching classes but failed," he told the BBC in a 2006 interview. "I always had a sense of music and rhythm. And that worked in my favour."  [via]

RIP Shammi Kapoor, 1931-2011.
