Rajesh Khanna: The charmer

Posted Thu, July 19, 2012 2:55pm IST

Men tried desperately to ape his inimitable style and women married his photographs. Rajesh Khanna captured the country’s imagination with his iconic status, his charming personality and his unique mannerisms. So what was it about India’s first superstar that seduced one and all?

His youthful charm, his lopsided smile and his naughty wink hypnotised the entire nation. Rajesh Khanna’s silver-screen image – as well as his off screen persona – created the kind of fan frenzy never seen before. We take a look at the key ingredients that made Khanna’s style statement uniquely his own.

    My entire life from schooling to present is completely influenced by The Original Superstar of Indian Cinema. In fact he taught us how to laugh, how to cry, how to love and above all how to live gracefully with high moral and ethics. He is a natural performer with outstanding calibre to portray his all characters with perfect characterization. With his historic superstar image he never compromise with artistic aspect of film media and whenever got a chance he performed even free of cost to satisfy his artistic thrust.
