Shabana Azmi recalls Shashi Kapoor’s ‘crazy’ behaviour on the sets of Fakira: ‘I looked at my hairdresser and said, ‘How mean is he?”

The veteran actress, a self-professed admirer of Shashi Kapoor since she was nine years old, described her experiences on the sets of the 1976 film fakirShe described Kapoor’s initial behavior as “mean” but ultimately helpful.

Shabana recalled: “He was crazy. I’ll give you an example: We were shooting for Fakira and the song was “I love you in my heart”“I was on the set before he arrived and Satyanarayan ji was doing the choreography. I saw that the movements were very intimate. I was very young then and I had tears in my eyes. I left the set and my heart was pounding because I really didn’t want to do those shots.”

“So I went in and told my hairdresser that I couldn’t do these shots and I started crying. Suddenly there was a heavy knock on the door, Shashi Kapoor came and said, ‘What is wrong with you?’ So I said, ‘I can’t do these scenes.’ He said, ‘Why didn’t you realise this when you became an actress, when you told your mother that you wanted to be an actress, silly girl?’ And he left. I looked at my hairdresser and said, ‘How mean is he? Look at the way he is talking to me.’ And then after half an hour, I went on the set and he had changed every move. That’s just the kind of person he was,” she added.

Speaking of her career, Shabana was last seen in the film directed by Karan Johar, Rocky and Rani Kii Prem Kahani. She will next be seen in Bun Tikkiwith Abhay Deol and Zeenat Aman in the other lead roles. The team has already completed the shooting and the film is currently in post-production.
