Siddharth Malhotra: I can’t even think of emulating Shammi Kapoorji

Siddharth Malhotra, the actor who made his debut with Student Of The Year, will be seen next in the Dharma Productions’ film Hasee Toh Phasee, opposite Parineeti Chopra.

In the movie, there is a song Shake It Like Shammi, which is a tribute of sorts to the late star Shammi Kapoor. “The song in question is titled ‘Shake It Like Shammi’. There is a fun situation in the film and Sidharth is grooving to the tune, Shammi Kapoor style,” says a source.

Benny Dayal will croon the song, who incidentally, had sung Ranbir Kapoor’s Badtameez Dil last year; that song also paid homage to the iconic Shammi Kapoor.

“The lyrics too are in line with the kind of fun element that was prevalent in Shammi Kapoor’s films. Also, one can’t miss the saxophone that comes at just the right moments, hence bringing back the nostalgia. There are good rock-n-roll elements coming into play for good measure,” the source adds.

Meanwhile, Siddharth Malhotra says “It would be a sacrilege to compare my steps to Shammiji’s master dancing. I am not even trying to emulate him. I can’t even think of doing that, can I? It is just that the lyrics are suggesting Shammi Kapoor’s presence.”
