Shashi Kapoor made it big in the industry with the 1965 romantic drama Jab Jab Phool Khile that starred Nanda opposite him. The film went on to become a major blockbuster, also because of its songs and beautiful locales of Kashmir. Their performances in the film — both individually and as a romantic on-screen pair — was a major plus-point of the film. Image via Facebook

With Rekha, Kapoor was seen in many non-commercial films — Ijaazat (1988) or Vijeta (1983), or big commercial projects of the likes of Silsila or Baseraa which released in 1981. However, the most memorable partnerships of these two talents came from Kapoor's production ventures — Kalyug, Utsav — which had some fabulous performances by Rekha. Image via Facebook.
