On remembering Late actor Shammi Kapoor, Nelia wrote for Hindustan Times. After the death of Shammi Kapoor’s first wife ‘Geeta Dutt’ she married Shammi in 1969. “By the early ‘60s, Shammi Kapoor rose to peaks as a star. He was the rebel hero of Indian cinema. Along with him, Shashi Kapoor also became a family friend. The death of Geeta Bali in 1965 shocked Shammi Kapoor. He was very emotionally perturbed as she was his true anchor. We came across each other at certain events. There were normal exchanges of pleasantries. He was the ideal father taking due care of son Aditya and daughter Kanchan. She wrote in her letter.
Further, she added, “It was the personal initiative of Krishna Raj Kapoor to get us married. Ours was an arranged one. I tied the knot with Shammi Kapoor on 27th January 1969. Our marriage was a simple family occasion. The entire Kapoor khandan attended. After marriage, Shammi Kapoor changed his outlook and lifestyle with proper counselling. By the early 70s, he was a different person altogether, sober, thinking, mellow and mature,”.
