Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna achieved the success that every actor wants. This was the period when tickets for Rajesh Khanna’s films were sold in black. Rajesh Khanna’s stardom can be gauged from the fact that the producers-directors used to line him up to sign him in his films. Rajesh Khanna, who ruled Hindi cinema for many years, also saw his stardom vanish.
This was the time when Rajesh Khanna’s era was coming to an end and Bollywood got its new face and the name of that face was Amitabh Bachchan. Along with Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna starred in the film Anand. Since then there was a rift between the two. In 1990, Amitabh and Rajesh Khanna agreed to interview together. According to media reports, after 17 years, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan were sitting next to each other.
By the way, Kaka was famous for being late but he arrived for the interview on time that day. During that interview, Rajesh Khanna revealed that he had started believing himself to be God. Not only this, he said about Amitabh Bachchan’s film Dewar that after this film, I started getting jealous of Amitabh. I used to laugh whenever I made a mistake with Amitabh.
According to reports, when Kaka became a superstar, thousands of his fans gathered outside Rajesh Khanna’s bungalow to get a glimpse of him. Fans used to bring lots of bouquets for them. Kaka’s entire drawing room was filled with flowers. Talking about this, Rajesh Khanna said- suddenly one day the flowers stopped coming. While I was working in films, flowers kept on coming. When I stopped working, fans also left me.
