Shammi Kapoor — Asha Parekh

If Shammi was the Elvis of India, then Asha was his Elizabeth Taylor. He was the country bumpkin made good, who could shimmy and shake with the best of them and whose sole purpose in life was Maximum Enjoyment. She was the ice-cold dark-eyed beauty with the perfect hair and the hint of mischief in her smile — and she could wrap him round her finger any day of the week.. They first came together in Dil Deke Dekko in 1959, the tour de force film that propelled Bollywood into the rock’n’roll age and made Shammi a star. He played four different roles in the movie and pronounced himself a comic masterpiece. They came together again in Teesri Mansil, one of the all-time classics of 60s cinema. A gripping murder mystery, it was also the peak of Shammi’s musical career and contained an item number by Helen — ‘Oh Haseena Zulfonwaali,’ that still leaves male audiences drooling. Asha looks stunning in the movie and her performance has real depth. These two defined the essence of the meaning of jodi and will always be a classic!
