Personal Quote:

(1990) Amitabh would best be remembered by historians as a 'Bollywood Legend', but Rajesh Khanna would remain a 'Permanent Superstar' for generations because of his natural charisma on and off screen. Khanna has done vast genres of films, experimented and performed many roles and also has keen interest in story, music and lyrics of songs in his films. Khanna is more versatile.

Trivia:

In the song 'O Manjhi Re' from the movie 'Khushboo', he used soda bottles with water filled at different levels and created a "phook" sound by blowing into them. This sound was used with the orchestra. See more »
