I don’t know when the crush on Shashi Kapoor had started. All I remember was it was a pretty serious crush.
Le jayenge le jayenge diwale dulhaniya le jayenge
The dance moves in this song that would make you want to rebel and marry someone against your parents wishes. Until I watched this song I loved that tiny bit of it sung during the movie Dilwale Dulhaniya le jayenge by Shah Rukh Khan during the antakshri song.
Jaane tu ya jaane na
The song that I did not know existed until I saw a movie starring Imran Khan and Genelia D’souza. It made me watch the movie Aa Gale lag jaa, which made me crazy about another song:
Waada karo nahi chodoge tum mera saath
Who said you could not fall in love while ice-skating?
Keh doon tumhein ya chup rahoon
This song was known to me only through a remix version which started like ‘I just wanna be close to you. Show you the way I feel.’
Kabhi kabhi mere dil me khayal aata hai
The supporting husband in Kabhie kabhie or the helpless husband in Basera?
Yesterday I was playing these songs over and over again. He was so handsome. I had a family friend who looked like him – a married man twice my age with two kids. I would blush every time he came home. Thankfully, I am not in touch with him or his family and they don’t follow my blog. 🙂
Shashi Kapoor for me still remains the most handsome man of his generation or even my generation . He will continue to be my only crush at an actor of those times.
A great life well lived and remembered.
