Shashi Kapoor

Shashi Kapoor was born on March 18, 1938 in Kolkata as Balbir Raj Kapoor. He was the third and the youngest son of legendary film actor Prithviraj Kapoor and Ramsarni Kapoor. His elder brothers Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor are noted film actors. The Fairlawn Hotel in Kolkata’s bustling 33-A Sudder Street was the one where Shashi Kapoor and his wife, late English actress Jennifer Kendal, stayed for their honeymoon in 1958. Room number 17, which overlooks the palms in the courtyard of this 200-year-old green building, was his favourite, the room he always chose when he visited the city. It was dubbed the ‘Shashi Kapoor Room’.

“how long could I have preserved this exquisite and expensive book of life, the pages of the book were damaged”  ~ Rumi Jafri

Mere paas maa hai
I have mom
Movie:Deewaar (1975)

Yeh prem rog hai … shuru mein dukh deta hai … bad mein bahut dukh deta hai
This is the disease of love … in the start it gives sorrow … and later it gives a lot of sorrow
Movie:Namak Halaal

ab tak ek bhai bol raha hai, ek bhai sun raha hai … jab ek mujrim bolega, ek police officer sunega
Until a brother is talking, a brother will listen … when a criminal will talk, a cop will listen
Movie:Deewaar (1975)

Hum gayab hone waalo mein se nahi hai … jahan jahan se guzharte hai jalwe dikhate hai … dost toh kya, dushman bhi yaad rakhte hai
I am not someone who will vanish … from wherever I pass I show my talent … not only friends, even my enemies remember me
Movie:Silsila

Zyada paisa aaye toh neend nahi aati … neend aaye toh zyada paisa nahi aata
When a lot of money comes then you can’t sleep … and when you sleep a lot of money can’t come
Movie:Deewaar (1975)

Apna toh ek hi usool hai … jeeyo toh apne liye, socho toh doosron ke liye
I have only one protocol … if you live then live for yourself, and if you think then think for others
Movie:Ek Aur Ek Gyarah

Is duniya mein aadmi insaan ban jaye … toh bahut badi baat hai
In this world if a man becomes a human … then it will be a pretty big thing
Movie:Kabhi Kabhie

Yeh duniya ek third class ka dibba ban gayi hai … jagah bahut kam hai, musafir zyada
This world has become a third grade place … the space is very less and people are more
Movie:Deewaar (1975)

Car se aane waale aksar derr se aate hai
People who come by car are usually late
Movie:Deewaar (1975)

Hawa badal gayi hai aaisi kuch zamaane ki … duayen maangta hoon hosh mein aane ki
The winds of the world have changed such that … I keep praying so that I can come back to my senses
Movie:Sharmilee
