A Guide to Shashi
Part 3 - Shirttastic
This part is not only about a truly fabulous shirt but also includes multiple Kapoor goodness as both films star Babita, the woman who would later marry his nephew Randhir Kapoor (later they got divorced), which made her give up acting because the Kapoor women weren't supposed to work as actresses.* (Boooo!) Today, Karisma and Kareena, her two daughters, more than make up for that (Yay!).
In 1968 Shashi, Babita and the most fantastic shirt on the planet starred in Haseena Maan Jayegi. And if that wasn't enough, Shashi also played a double role!
Rakesh is the College's resident womanizer and really popular, probably because he gives great lessons on girls:
(Or maybe because secretly all the other boys fancy him? He makes for a fantastic courtesan ...)Both films are really entertaining, while a tiny bit less over the top than most of Shammi's films and so I guess they're a good introduction into 60s romantic comedy. And did I mention that Shashi is more than schnuffig while doing the funky 60s headshake (or rather full-body-shake)? You want proof?
And for the Helenfreaks out there: Feathers!
* One exeption from that rule was Shashi's wife Jennifer Kendal, even though she wasn't in a lot of films.
