Grief over the passing of Rajesh Khanna spills over from Bollywood into the Southern film industry too
Kollywood superstars, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan expressed shock over the death of the first Superstar of Bollywood.In his message, Rajini said, “My heartfelt condolences to the family of the legendary star Rajesh Khanna. I pray to the Almighty, may his soul rest in peace.”
Kamal said, “I knew Rajesh Khannaji as an Indian and world star. Even as an up and coming actor, he was already a superstar. He had the kindness to be my friend and admired what little talent I had. He had acted in some of my films, which were remade in Hindi. I still remember the time spent with him very well. He would often give me advice. Rajesh Khanna is one of a kind, and I think very few actors in the future will achieve the sort of fame he did. I offer my deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends.”
