Shammi Kapoor, the fun-loving lover

February 13, 2008
There are romantic leading men and there are romantic leading men, but very few have taken cinematic love to legendary heights. While there might be other icons, we at decided to pick our favourites and, for Valentine's Day, look back at their most romantic songs.

We started with the obvious, Dev Anand. Second on the list came tragic romantic Dilip Kumar, and third was Jubilee Hero Rajendra Kumar. Here now is the most flamboyant and fun of Hindi cinema's lovers, the distinctive Shammi Kapoor.

Satyajit Ray's stunning protege Sharmila Tagore made a splash as soon as she entered Hindi cinema, and Shammi was in full flow with this great song -- in a film very hard to pick just one track from.
