Sharmila Tagore....is one Indian film actress who was very successful in mainstream commercial cinema after having kids. Se was pregnant with Saif Ali Khan when she went on the stage to get her best actress award for Aradhana. See more »
In the opening song sequence , Sharmila Tagore is seen reading a book while seated in the train. The book's name is When Eight Bells toll, a thriller novel written by Alistair Maclean published in the year 1966. The film was released in 1969, so it is clear that the flashback was shown in a time which was actually a "flash-forward", which is impossible.She should have been shown reading The Heart of the Matter (1948), a novel by the English author Graham Greene.

Aradhana is surely one of the best Hindi movies ever made with scintillating music by S.D Burman & RDB(uncredited).
The film belongs to sharmila tagore who has given one of her career finest performances. It has a strong storyline, lovely locales, great performances & out of the world music. It is ably directed by shakti shamantha.
However, the movie is remembered & will be remembered forever for 1 main reason - the advent of the superstar Rajesh Khanna. From the opening song "sapnon ke rani" till the climax, he stays in your heart. The charm, the style, the gait, the performance - simply superb.
The movies was a pioneering one in many ways :- 1. It resurrected the career of kishore kumar 2. "Roop tera mastana" happens to be the only song in Indian cinema which was shot in a single take.
3. The finest album by SDB But above all, it gave India its greatest's super star Rajesh Khanna
