Mumtaz Reveals Why She Didnt Marry Shammi Kapoor And Lost Out on Mera Naam Joker


Mumbai: Veteran actress Mumtaz has revealed why she didn’t marry Shammi Kapoor despite being in love with her. In a recent interview with a leading entertainment portal, Mumtaz revealed that it was she who refused to marry Shammi Kapoor as Kapoor did not want her daughters-in-law to be in the film industry. “The world wanted to marry me but I had to decide with whom I should be happy. Shammi Kapoor was very sweet and caring with me. No one would believe we were in love. No one could believe that I told him ‘no’ to the marriage because Shammi had a high status; He said ‘How can Mumtaz refuse Shammi?’. Today when I got married to Mayur Madhvani, who has money by the grace of God, people believe that I had refused Shammi.’ apologies later

Mumtaz also revealed that Shammi Kapoor had asked her to quit her career to be happy. However, he did not accept it. “The Kapoors would not have liked it if the daughter-in-law in their family was in the film line. Shammiji told me that if I want him to be happy with me, then I have to give up my career. Now at that young age I was very ambitious and wanted to reach somewhere. I also wanted to settle my family. Just sitting at home didn’t go down with me,” Mumtaz said. This was the reason that Mumtaz also lost to ‘Mera Naam Joker’. The resulting role was given to a Russian girl.
