Shammi Kapoor remembers wife’s death during ‘Teesri Manzil’



Mumbai, Sep 4 (IANS) Veteran actor Shammi Kapoor, who had enthralled audiences with his super-energetic performance in “Teesri Manzil” (1966), remembers his first wife, actress Geeta Bali, whom he lost while he was shooting for the film.

“There are many beautiful moments I spent during the making of ‘Teesri Manzil’. There are some sad moments of my life that occurred during the making of film as well. I lost my wife in that period of time in 1975 and then we continued to work,” Shammi told reporters at PVR Phoenix Mill, where he had attended to watch “Teesri Manzil” in Purani Jeans Film Festival organised by Radio Mirchi.

“She was there when I started working in ‘Teesri Manzil’. She would have been very happy to see my contribution in this picture, which I am very proud of,” he added.

Asked which actor of today’s generation could reprise his role had the film been remade, he said: “I don’t think you will be able to make it again.”
