Rajesh Khanna critical, Dimple Kapadia by his side

Daughter Rinke Khanna has flown in from Kolkata to look after her ailing father

All’s not well with Hindi filmdom’s original superstar Rajesh Khanna. The actor, recently seen in a TV ad, has stopped intake of food the past few days, while his estranged wife Dimple Kapadia is taking care of him. “Rajeshji is unwell. He has stopped having food since the last three or four days,” the 69-year-old’s manager Ashwin. “He is not able to have his food. Khaana muh pe nahi jaa raha hai (The food is not going into his mouth),” he added, but didn’t confirm if the actor will be admitted to a hospital soon.

Popularly known as Kaka, the actor first went through a health scare in April and was hospitalised following uneasiness. His current illness brought his younger daughter Rinke to Mumbai Wednesday morning (June 20). “Rinke and her mother Dimple Kapadia are by his side and taking care of him,” said Ashwin. Dimple and Rajesh‘s elder daughter Twinkle is expecting her second baby with Bollywood star Akshay Kumar.

Rajesh, touted as Hindi cinema’s “first superstar”, began his acting career with Aakhri Khat in 1966 and rose to prominence with his performances in films like RaazDo Raaste, Anand and Aradhana. He earned the superstar title following 15 consecutive solo super hits between 1969 to 1972. Recently, he was seen in a TV commercial for Havell’s fans. The campaign was directed by R Balki.

      Hello Manohar,
      Thank you for posting such good comments about Rajesh Khanna.
      He truly was exceptional. The more I see his movies, the more I want to see them. Can never get enough of his talent. His acting abilities were unmatched even in his later films of the late 70s and 80s. His acting and style was just unique and all complete. The tragic part is, he just went ignored in his lifetime and people finally woke up to recognize his incredible contribution to hindi films only after his death.
      He just led a life of loneliness and pain. Alas!
      May his soul RIP! Kaanchan.
