A year ago on July 18, Bollywood lost its first superstar and the heartthrob of the ’70s Rajesh Khanna. Khanna who died of cancer in Mumbai, at the age of 69 had a very distinct persona. He was never considered as the most handsome man of Bollywood but his charm was irresistible. Fondly known as Kaka in the film fraternity, he began his career with ‘Aakhri Khat’ in 1966 and in a career spanning five decades, he became a superstar with hits like ‘Aradhana’, ‘Do Raaste’, ‘Safar’ and ‘Anand’. On his first death anniversary, some of his ardent fans remembered him.
