Mumbai, July, 18: Indian Silver screen's first superstar Rajesh Khanna passes away on July 18, he was 69. He is survived by his wife Dimpla Kapadia and daughters Twinkle and Rinke and his son-in-law Akshay Kumar was.

Rajesh Khanna born on December 29, 1942,he was raised by the relatives of his biological parents. He attended St. Sebestian's Goan High School along with his childhood friend Ravi Kapoor, who later adopted the screen name Jeetendra. Always high on confidence, Rajesh Khanna was the other name for style symbol.

In the initial stage of his career Rajesh Khanna had won several acting competitions at various levels before debuting in ‘Aakhri Khat' after the talent hunt in the year 1966. After playing in successful films such as ‘Baharon Ke Sapne', ‘Aradhana', ‘Ittefaq', and ‘Do Raaste', he intruded into the hearts of millions of his fans, who credited him with the title of superstar. Delivering 15 consecutive solo hit films seemed easy every time his face appeared on the posters of a new film.

Advent of Rajesh Khanna on Bollywood

Dev Anand's era was eclipsed and India started digressing from Nehruvian philosophies. Rajesh Khanna and his contemporary showman's realized the importance of providing an alternating reality to the film fan's.

The storytellers emphasised on his flawed characters on the screen. It brought him closer to the general audiences who wanted to step ahead of Dev Anand and Guru Dutt's preaching.

He became the man who loved by his fan's till death, and who was strong enough to accept his flaws, unlike other who knew what emotion they want to evoke right from the first shot.

Rajesh Khanna didn't have Greek god's charrecter, neither he fought with hundreds of goons, in fact he looked vulnerable, but it was this susceptibility which made him endear to his female fans.

Thanks to composers such as Salil Chaudhary SD Burman and Laxmikant-Pyarelal, an actor became the epitome of romance on silver screen. He bent his head to peep into the hearts of college going, cycle riding girls.

The second stage of his acting career began with ‘Anand'. Probably his most memorable work till date, ‘Anand' showed how one can play a character . ‘Dushman', ‘Amar Prem', ‘Bawarchi', ‘Daag', ‘Avishkar', ‘Namak Haram' and ‘Aap Ki Kasam', the cordial relation with the audiences went on till the social set up changed its course in 1975.

His personal life was not as glittering as his screen show. His relationship with Anju Mahendru finished at a sad note, while his marriage with Dimple Kapadia was called off after 11 years in 1984. Later, Dimple only became his closest partner in life.

Rajesh Khanna's stint with the small screen through serials like ‘Apne Paraye' and ‘Ittefaq' can be considered successful.

A role in politics made him an MP from Delhi.Today, he might not be with his fans (ironically he did a TV commercial of fan saying he will remain with his fans forever), but the lovers of every age group will took up to his silver screen appearance for inspiration and never losing the hope.
