Rajesh Khanna's life has been very well portrayed in an unbiased and interesting manner. More than being just a narration of someone else's life, it also gives the reader a perspective of how to or how not to lead their lives.

more than focussing on the life events as it is, the author has focused on the struggle and pain that the only superstar of bollywood had gone through and its really touching...the way he tried to analyze the personality of rajesh khanna,makes sense and is not just gossip or anything like that..the authir was able to maintain a certain level of dignity in describing it which i appreciate the most.. though i belong to khan era of bollywood,i still love rajesh khanna and im a die hard fan of him..i inherited it from my mother!! so u ee how it goes!haha!! i cried buckets watching aradhana..and i was curious till the end of kudrat and was happy at the reunion of boty the souls!! rajesh khanna cannot die..he lives forever in our hearts,much loved!!

For Someone who has never met the Phenomenon Superstar during His Lifetime either at His Peak nor when He was down and out in the Dumps Fighting tooth and nail to get back even a few specks of His former glory TV Journalist YASSER USMAN biography is mostly based on hearsay and whatever He could gather from souces who were eager to share their version of The 'RAJESH KHANNA' they knew and had interacted with..Mostly His inside Staff and Film Journalists of leading publications..Nobody expected the Immediate family be It His estranged wife DIMPLE or His daughters TWINKLE or RINKIE or Damadjee AKSHAY KUMAR be forthcoming to talk about their Side of the Story or share their version..This the book that began with KAKA funeral goes into a filmi flashback piecing the intriguing puzzle that was JATIN KHANNA who transformed into RAJESH KHANNA the unparalled Phenomenon unlike anything the film industry had seen before or even after His Shattering downfall.
Truly the book is gripping and not for a fraction of a second is it un-putsownable How well the book has been researched can be seen from the fact that of the 323 pages...The story is wrapped up beautifully in just 283 pages..The remaining 40 Pages are devoted to the Sources without whom the book may never have come about leave alone so convincingly that it almost captivates You.
Like SALIM KHAN of the superduper SALIM-JAVED jodi that changed the very face of screenplay writing in Indian Cinema as they churned out one megahit after another, who has written the foreword of this book confesses,"Nobody really knew RAJESH KHANNA..But this book comes closest to understanding HIM!!

Excellent information about Rajesh Khanna. It shows his rise and fall. He was bit stubborn and for this bad habit, he paid very high price. However, he was stylish and master of acting. This book is good for all book lovers. I fully enjoyed it.

Does this book help a reader understand the phenomenon of Rajesh Khanna, the superstar? To a great extent it does. You can almost feel the hysteria around Khanna and will agree (even if you are not his fan) that no superstar could ever achieve the zenith that Rajesh Khanna did. But does it explain the psyche of Jatin Khanna, the human being? To some extent. In parts, the writer is as puzzled as the people who lived around Khanna at that time, for Rajesh Khanna seldom revealed what was in his mind to anyone. The most beautifully written chapters of the book describe the fame that came to Khanna after the unexpected blockbuster Aradhana, his meeting with Anju Mahendroo, many years after their split and the last years of his life, when Rajesh Khanna fought hard to win back his fans. And the fans did return, though with his death. You can read more about this book in my post

A very well researched book on superstar Rajesh Khanna which deals with all aspects of the actor's life and traces the childhood, meteoric rise and the sudden downfall of the actor. The author provides insightful information about the events which took place in the actor's life and also delves into the actor's psyche to offer explanations about his behaviour at different stages of stardom. Like Salim Khan mentions in the foreword, the book reads much like the script of one of Rajesh Khanna's films and makes us cry and smile at places. The book will definitely bring the reader very close to the actor and help us in understanding his amazing and unique journey in the film industry.
Thankyou amazon for the prompt delivery
