Rajesh Khanna, lovingly known as Kaka, was the god of romance. In his heydays, from 1969 to 1975, every film he starred in was a guaranteed box office hit, and Kaka generated a kind of hysteria that even Salman Khan and Rajinikanth haven’t been able to match up to yet.
On his death anniversary today, we miss his crinkly eyed smile and that signature flick of the hand, that won millions of hearts across the country. His style and charisma live on and so do his melodious love songs from his biggest hits Kati Patang, Aradhana, Amar Prem and Roop Tera Mastana... music that is as eternal as the man himself.
