Sharmila Tagore says Rajesh Khanna bought houses for co-stars but had great expectations off them: ‘Sambandhon mein tanav aa jata tha’

Remembering him, Sharmila Tagore said, “Rajesh Khanna antarvirodho aur jatiltaon se bhare vyakti the, maine unhe apne mitron aur seh-karmiyon ke sath behat udhaar hote dekha hai…un par keemti uphar barsaate hue bhi dekha hai. Kabhi kabhi to wo unke liye ek ghar bhi kharid dete the, lekin badle mai vo kuch zyada hi umeed rakhte the jisse sambandhon mein tanav aa jata tha. (Rajesh Khanna was a man full of contradictions and complexities, I have seen him be very generous with his co-actors, colleagues, and friends...showering them with expensive gifts. Sometimes he even bought them a house but in return, it seems Kaka had great expectations off them, which eventually strained his relations).”

Sharmila Tagore, superstar Rajesh Khanna’s favourite co-star, mentioned that women came out in droves to see him. She said, “There was a long queue of women from nine to ninety outside the studio where we worked. The hysteria was unprecedented.”

She also mentioned, “He (Rajesh Khanna) probably didn’t have the attributes that are normally associated with a hero, what he had was a disarming smile, youthful energy and an innate sense of drama and a well-modulated voice which he used to his fullest advantage.”
