Aamir’s Lucky Mascot, Shammi Kapoor

The proverb may be true for many men ‘Behind Every Successful Man, There is a Woman’, but not for Aamir Khan. Yes that’s true, Mr. Perfectionist doesn’t give his success credit to his wife, but to his lucky Mascot, Shammi Kapoor. That was the reason when Aamir Khan launched the music of his flick, Peepli Live, he went to Shammi’s residence and gave him the first copy of the CD.

This is not the first time, before also on the launch of music release of Taare Zameen Par and Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Naa, Khan personally visited Shaami’s residence and presented him the first copy of the related stories. He believes Shammi ji as part of his family. A source reveals,

“Aamir doesn’t want to break tradition. He has done it with TZP and JTYJN and wants to do it for Peepli [Live] as well. He considers Shammiji to be part of his family. Since the veteran actor has to undergo dialysis, Aamir will check his schedule and make the visit accordingly. Anusha Rizvi, the director of Peepli [Live] will also join him.”

Shammi ji has worked with Aamir’s grandfather Nassir Husain and from that time, he considers him as part of his family.
