Dharmendra takes a funny dig at Mumtaz's revelation about Shammi Kapoor's marriage proposal: 'Shammi ji aur inki parties main bhi...'
In her upcoming appearance on the singing reality show Indian Idol 13, Mumtaz will be talking about her love affair with Shammi Kpaoor. She will be joined by veteran actor Dharmendra on the show.
Speculations of yesteryear actress Mumtaz ’s romance with Shammi Kapoor were rife back in the day. The two met during the shooting of Brahmachari and featured in the film’s iconic song ‘Aajkal tere mere pyaar ke charche’. Soon after, a whirlwind romance brewed between the two which didn’t long. In her upcoming appearance on the singing reality show Indian Idol 13 , Mumtaz will be opening up about her affair with Shammi. She will be joined by veteran actor Dharmendra on the show.
In the recently released promo, Mumtaz reveals Shammi had proposed to her when she was just 17. “Unhone straightforward kaha tha ‘I want to marry you.’ Main 17 saal ki thi. Mujhe shaadi nahi karna tha isliye shaadi nahi ki. (I was 17 years old. I didn’t want to get married and so I didn’t). But I do miss him sometimes. But naseeb main bhi toh likh hona chahiye tha, shaadi toh ladkiyon ko kitne baar offer hote hai. Hua nahi hua koi baat nahi, but I respect him.”Following this Dharmendra quips, “Shammiji aur inki parties me main bhi jata raha hoon” (I have also been to their parties).
During the episode, Mumtaz will be seen hugging Dharmendra and saying, “I was very fond of Dharam.” And Dharmendra replies, “Mumtaz ko dekh ke feeling aa jati hai. (I get feelings when I see Mumtaz.)” Also, Mumtaz will also perform her popular number ‘Aaj Kal Tere Mere Pyaar Ke Charche’. She will also share the stage with Dharmendra to perform on their hit romantic song ‘Main Tere Ishq Mein’ from 1973’s release Loafer.
Meanwhile, Mumtaz tied the knot with Ugandan-based businessman Mayur Madhvani at the age of 27 in 1974. On the other hand, Shammu married actress Geeta Bali in 1955, with whom he had a son and a daughter. After Bali’s unfortunate death, he had his second marriage with Neila Devi. He breathed his last on 14 August 2011 at the age of 79 just 2 months and 7 days before his 80th birthday.
