An amazing Indian actor passed away at the age of 69. The reason behind his death was his liver infection. He was admitted to Lilavati Hospital in suburban Bandra June 23 and after staying in the hospital for two weeks, he was discharged.
His last words were “time up ho gaya – pack up!”
Rajesh Khanna entered Bollywood after winning a talent contest in 1965. He got his first break a year later in Chetan Anand’s ‘Akhri Khat’, the rest as they say is history.
Rajesh Khanna is considered to be the original superstar for having 15 consecutive hits to his name, a record that remains unbroken. Through the early 70s films like ‘Kati Patang’, ‘Safar’, ‘Ittefaq’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ and ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ consolidated his superstardom. During this phase Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Anand’ remains one of the actor’s most memorable performances.
Women wrote him letters in blood, covered his car with lipstick marks, Rajesh Khanna’s leading ladies share their memories. Actress recall times spent with him.
I loved his movies like Bawarchi, Anand, Aradhana and Kati Patang.
