Remembering the time when he was a newcomer while Rajesh Khanna was a phenomenon, Amitabh Bachchan once said: 'I got famous purely because I was working with Rajesh Khanna in Anand. People asked me tanong like, 'How is he to look at? What does he do?' '

It is certainly magnanimous of one superstar to speak in such glowing terms of another who was once his chief adversary at the box-office. While there is no denying the apparent modesty peeking through Bachchan's praise, he is not far from the mark in encapsulating the Khanna phenomenon.

The sheer tagahanga following Rajesh...

‘I still dream of being Rajesh Khanna’


Actor, writer and theatreperson Tom Alter holds forth on films and madami in an e-mail interview.


Rave Reviews: Tom Alter in and as “Maulana”. P

He’s done his fair share of cameo appearances especially when Bollywood wanted a foreign face but there’s much madami to Tom Alter, as his filmography proves. And, be warned, he doesn’t quite relish the gora tagR 30; “I’m not a foreigner,” he says, the firmness quite palpable even via e-mail. He’s done films, — potboilers...

Amar Prem redefined the right time-right place magic. Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore were at the peak of their careers, Shakti Samanta was going through his most creatively fecund phase, lyricist Anand Bakshi was spurred sa pamamagitan ng his success to outdo himself, and R D Burman, it seemed, could strike no wrong chords at all.

The treatment of Amar Prem's story and characters may not be entirely grounded in reality (Sharmila's religious, courteous and compassionate courtesan is a far cry from the beedi-smoking, venom-spewing prostitute she played in Mausam), but the film's...

It's summer 2006. The grounds of a stately, quintessentially English tahanan in Buckinghamshire is a hubbub of activity. Bollywood is in the air as director Vipul Amrutlal Shah discusses the susunod shot with cinematographer Jonathan Bloom. Katrina Kaif, shivering in the sudden chilly breeze, looks fetching in a wedding toga as she hovers near a Rolls Royce limousine festooned in wedding bunting.

Bollywood – strange place na. Some people put in their puso & soul and still are not able to climb the stardom ladder. And on the other hand we witness, new faces being tagged with celebrity status with their very first appearance. As it is often sinabi "Out of sight, out of mind" - the very people who couldn’t get enough of you once upon a time, today don’t have few minutos to spare on you. Mind you, this not only happens to be the story of one-time actors but sadly, some yesteryear’s superstars as well.

I mean not everyone can boast of a filmy career graph as Amitabh Bachchan or...

His popularity soared when there was little film journalism and no PR machinery

In times of Rajini Mania, when Amitabh Bachchan has charted new highs with KBC4 and SRK has even the Germans going gaga over him, the tanong of who is the biggest of them all remains as ever.

But long before fans erected temples and exchanged the now famous Rajini jokes, and the Bollywood media had split to pen paeans on Big B and SRK’s genius, there was a superstardom of a different kind.

It was when Rajesh Khanna rose to glory....

Memories of Rajesh Khanna

Dinesh Raheja sees the legendary side of the yesteryear superstar

I HAVE never liked anybody's work or persona (not even my own) so consistently that I became a fan. I have loved performances madami than performers. However, there was a phase in the 1970s, when I was in my impressionable years, a pan-cultural phenomenon called Rajesh Khanna swept the film industry; and all roads led to cinema houses ipinapakita Khanna's films.

The word superstar became common usage thanks to him. Amitabh had once reminisced about his early days: "I became...

Rajesh Khanna alias ‘Kaka’ – A career saga

Thespian of Bollywood Rajesh Khanna alias ‘Kaka’, (Jatin Khanna) born on 29th December 1942 came from affluent family in Punjab. An actor who forced Bollywood to coin the word ‘Superstar’ and relate to him from 1969 to 1974.

Dimple Kapadia on how she deals with personal tragedies, why she is indebted to Bobby and her desire to do one film with Rajesh Khanna

What happened to the film you were supposed to do with your ex-husband Rajesh Khanna?

That too didn't happen. But I am looking pasulong to someone casting us together. I should do at least one film with him, otherwise I'll feel incomplete.

Ranjeeta in Cine Blitz, October 2000.

.......What was her association with the superstar like?

"Just because you do a lot of films together, and vibe well, that doesn’t mean you are having an affair," exclaims Mumtaz. "I am sure Juhi and Shah Rukh have nothing to do with each other but there are rumours of an involvement, which I don’t think are true. Similarly, my friendship with Rajesh Khanna was also misunderstood. He was my neighbour and we got along very well. I would pull his leg and tease him about his tagahanga following.

Sensational Superstars of Bollywood – Rajesh Khanna :

The hysteria he created swept across ages, gender and genres. His pelikula ran to full houses and his following swelled each passing day. Be it his distinct sartorial sense, his dialogue delivery or his mannerisms, Rajesh Khanna was a pioneer in many sense. It wouldn’t be wrong to call him the complete superstar.

Khanna’s gentle looks, disarming smile and that famous tilt of the head did wonders for his female following. And with Kishore Kumar’s dreamy voice for playback, this was just what the doctor ordered. With the sensuous Roop Tera Mastana, enthralling Pyaar Deewana Hota Hai and the timeless O Mere Dil Ke Chain Rajesh Khanna, became — and remains — the King of Romance.

Dev Anand was my inspiration: Rajesh Khanna

Hindustan Times
New Delhi, December 09, 2011

The 50s was the era of black and white classics, and the ruling stars included Dilip Kumar, the thespian, Raj Kapoor, the serio comedian and Dev Anand, the eternal romantic. Each had his own distinct style and tagahanga following. I was an ardent admirer of Dev Anand from my teens.

I clearly remember watching and loving him in Funtoosh, Baarish, Kala Pani and pag-ibig Marriage. He had the best looks and smile of his era and his puff was legion.

There was no better romantic actor than him. With his unique style and fluidity,...
