Asha Parekh in Dil Deke Dekho: The film gave Asha Parekh an instant image as the go-go girl. She went on to star in a number of jubilee hits and always said Shammi Kapoor was lucky for her.
Saira Banu in Junglee: The kamsin, frail, nazuk, nakhrewali heroine made her debut with Shammi Kapoor who was a huge star by the time he got to this one. Yet, look at the man’s generosity. He didn’t allow her to be overshadowed. If he had songs like Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujh Par and Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe, she had Kashmir Ki Kali Hoon Main and the female version of the tandem Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujh Par.
Sharmila Tagore in Kashmir Ki Kali: The Bengali beauty with crater-like dimples got her first break in Hindi with the Yahoo star. Shammi wooed Sharmila in style with numbers like Hai Duniya Usiki Zamana Usika and Isharon Isharon Mein.
Kalpana in Professor: This was the only Shammi Kapoor debutante who went wrong. Shammi Kapoor gave Kalpana (Mohan) all the right moves. But she messed it up. One heard of Kalpana going into a life of disrepute. Sad.
