Aamir Khan has immense respect for Shammi Kapoor. In fact, the legend has released the music of Aamir’s films like Taare Zameer Par and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. For the special show that Aamir is doing for the Cine Artiste Association, Aamir suggested that they feature a special segment on romance.

And who better than Shammi Kapoor to talk about love? Aamir not only convinced Shammi, but arranged the entire shoot and shot the segment on Thursday at the actor’s residence.

Aamir Khan has immense respect for Shammi Kapoor. In fact, the legend has released the music of Aamir’s films like Taare Zameer Par and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. For the special show that Aamir is doing for the Cine Artiste Association, Aamir suggested that they feature a special segment on romance.

Aamir is performing on the Zoobie Doobie song from 3 Idiots for the Cine Artiste Association’s show, which will be televised. While rehearsing, Aamir was speaking to a couple of actors from the association and suggested that they should have a section with an actor speaking about romance.

And that actor should be Shammi Kapoor. Shammi refused as he was unwell. Aamir personally called Shammiji and requested him to be a part of the show. Shammiji has lot of affection for Aamir and he agreed. Aamir organised the whole shoot himself and shot the episode at Shammiji’s house.”

Aamir is only too happy about pulling it off. He said, “Shammi Kapoor, for me, is the romantic icon and my personal favourite. When he looked into the eyes of his heroine, every woman in the audience went weak in the knees. Talking to him about romance was a wonderful experience. One can always pick a nuance or two when talking to such a legend.”
