Rajesh Khanna lived king size till the end, reveals his close friend – Exclusive! | Hindi Movie News
‘He was full of life and indifferent to what the media wrote about him’
Rajesh Khanna lived a King Size life to the end. He was one of the most generous people I have ever met in my entire life. What the media reported about him, his financial situation and his relationship with his family was completely false, as I witnessed what was happening in his life. He was full of life and quite indifferent to what the media wrote about him. But he also used to tell me that these are the same outlets that had helped him during his fighting days.
He also told us that “we are Khatris and hum log betiyon ko dete hain unse kuch lete nahin (we support our daughters, we do not depend on them)”.
‘Akshay kumar He was his buddy and that’s how he addressed him ‘
He shared a special bond with Dimpleji and she cared for him and cared for him to the end. She was there with him 24/7. Before Kakaji fell ill, I have seen Dimple come to her house and also visit her for lunch and dinner. Akshay Kumar was his friend and so he also addressed him. There is another incident that I must mention here. Both Kakaji and Dimpleji were invited by a radio station and a listener asked Dimple about the secret of their beauty. Kakaji took the microphone away from him and said, “It’s me.” During the same trip, Dimpleji went shopping and returned with Kaka’s favorite cigarettes and sunglasses. He was not wearing his designer glasses during that trip and when Dimpleji insisted that he did wear them and said, “Lag raha hoon na main Rajesh Khanna? (I look like Rajesh Khanna, don’t I?) ”
Kakaji knew his time had come, but he was not afraid as he was fully aware of his health and was also a bit of an astrologer. But his doctor expressed disappointment at not being able to save him. During his last days, Kakaji had watched a DVD of Hrishikesh Mukherji‘s’ Anand’, as his real life resonated with the character he played in that movie.
‘Kakaji would say, “Issue industry mein relations from Friday to Friday badalti hain’
He was disappointed by some colleagues in the film industry, whom he had helped during the early days of his career. He had been replaced by one of the same artists in a film that had famous dialogue that was retained in the film after Kakaji exited the project. But he did not regret anything. Kakaji said: “Cast relationships in the industry from Friday to Friday badalti hain (relationships change every Friday in the film industry)”
I remember when Kakaji returned from Macau after receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from Amitabh Bachchan, he was asked by a member of the press why can’t he and Amitabh bachchan meet again. Kakaji immediately agreed with the idea and said, “Why not? But there should be a producer to make the movie. ”
