Shabana Recalls Angry Shashi Kapoor Called Her ‘Stupid’ For Refusing Intimate Scenes With Him

“He said, ‘Why, when you became an actress and you said Mummy, mummy mai bhi actress banungi tab tumko khayal nahi aaya ki iss tarike ke cheezein tumko karna hai,” revealed Shabana Azmi.

Shabana Azmi is one of the most talented actresses of Bollywood and she has worked with almost all the big actors of the industry and recently during an interview, she talked about her experience of working with Shashi Kapoor.
Shabana Azmi narrated an incident from her movie, Fakira in which she worked with Shashi Kapoor and he scolded her because Shabana didn’t want to do intimate scenes with him.

Shabana Azmi stated, “That was his way of showing affection. He was crazy. I will give you an example, we were shooting for Fakira and the song was Dil Mein Tujhe Bithakar. Now, I went on set before he arrived and Satyanarayan ji was doing the choreography and I saw that the moves were very intimate and I was very young at that time and I had tears in my eyes and I left the set and my heart was thudding because I really didn’t want to do those shots.”

She further said, “So I went in and I told my hairdresser that I couldn’t do those shots and I started crying. Suddenly there was a heavy knocking on the door, comes Shashi Kapoor, he was like, ‘What’s wrong with you’, so I said, ‘I can’t do those scenes’, he said, ‘Why, when you became an actress and you said Mummy, mummy mai bhi actress banungi tab tumko khayal nahi aaya ki iss tarike ke cheezein tumko karna hai (didn’t you realise this when you told your family I want to become an actress), stupid girl’, and he left.”

Shabana added, “I looked at my hairdresser and I said, ‘How mean is he, look at the way he’s speaking to me.’ And then after half an hour, I went on the set and he had every move changed. This was the kind of person he was. I have been a fan of Shashi Kapoor since I think I was 9. When I was in school, he would come with his family every Sunday to Prithviraj Kapoor’s house and Prithviraj Kapoor was my immediate neighbour. So, I used to save on my pocket money and buy a black-and-white photo of Shashi Kapoor and every Sunday I would go and I would get it signed. He’s the only person whose autograph I took on his photograph. For me, when I was suddenly cast opposite him in Hira Aur Patthar, it was completely unbelievable and the thing about Shashi was that he schooled me.”
