This was revealed by the actress herself during an interview.
When Mumtaz was asked in an interview that ‘Didn’t Shammi Kapoor treat her well after she turned down the marriage proposal?’ On this, Mumtaz had said: ‘There were many misunderstandings between the two of us. He told me that he wanted to work in movies with him, so I just pretended to be in love with him. I was very shocked by these words of yours. It doesn’t matter how much I love someone, but if they don’t treat me right or call me mean, then I will never look at them. I said to Shammi ji, if you believe that, then that’s fine. I will never work with you again, I promise.
Mumtaz further said, ‘Shammi ji told me that if you can’t stop acting, it means you never loved me.’ After this, Ramesh Sippy wanted to cast me and Shammi ji film style. But I had refused. I really loved him very much and he loved me too. I don’t regret loving Shammi ji, but I’m proud of those moments.
