Mini Biography :
Shammi has acted in many fun and boisterous films; he was often considered the Indian Elvis Presley in the 1960s. He started out with serious roles but with Fimistan’s Nasir Hussain directed Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957) opposite Ameeta and Dil Deke Dekho (1959) with Asha Parekh, he attained the image of a light hearted playboy. With Junglee (1961).His new image was cemented and subsequent films were all in this genre. He particularly used Mohammed Rafi as his playback voice and Rafi was also his friend. In fact, it was Rafi who shouted the song “Yahoo” that was famously picturized on Shammi in the huge hit film Junglee (1961). Though in his early career he had often played second fiddle to established heroines like Madhubala in films such as Rail Ka Dibba (1953), producers now loved pairing Shammi with new heroines, but only three became huge stars: Asha Parekh, Saira Banu, and Sharmila Tagore.

He and Asha Parekh were paired together in four films, the most successful being the murder mystery Teesri Manzil (1966).
