Yesterday, marked the 78th birth anniversary of legendary actor Rajesh Khanna and while we saw many celebs from the fraternity remembering the star, actress Rakhee shared some interesting anecdotes about the Aradhana star. Talking to E Times, Rakhee revealed that filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherjee used to say that no actor can compete with Rajesh Khanna. "Hrishida used to say that nobody can compete with Rajesh Khanna; it is impossible. And, he said, Rajesh Khanna wasn't there for his body or height but what a personality for just his face, smile and eyes. And, I totally agree with Hrishida's viewpoint," said Rakhee.

Rakhee Gulzar added, "Nobody can deny the fact how much people loved him. Us time par aisa tha that we all saw whichever film had Rajesh Khanna. There was an unbelievable craze for him." Speaking about their films, which couldn't the big screens, Rakhee added, "We shot a film called 'Majnoon' which had Kamal Amrohi as director and Rajesh Khanna himself as producer- but that did not make headway after we had done 15 days of its shoot. I did another film with him which did not see the light of day as it wasn't made beyond 50 per cent."
"Rajesh Khanna was a very decent man. I think we had some great scenes together in 'Daag'. He was a very easy-going co-star. He was spontaneous and didn't get into any heavy-duty preparation." added the Rudaali actress. The actress also spoke about the time when both were admitted to the hospital at the time as she asserted, "We were admitted on the same floor. Dimple had dropped by to see me. But I didn't go over to see him; mera mann nahin hua unko is tarah nahi dekhne ka."
