Yahaan Kal Kya Ho Kisne Jana

I can't claim to be a fan. I've hardly watched any movies of his. I'm an 80s baby and his popularity had started to wane by the time I tumbled out into the world. But I've heard stories of women going hysterical over him...sending him letters written in blood, trying to commit suicide when he married Dimple Kapadia etc. That is some serious stardom. And then he got lost into oblivion to the extent that he had to do B-grade movies to be able to continue paying his bills. That's a sad story indeed.

And can I just take a moment to say that the Havell's ad with him was completely appalling? Not something I expected of Balki.

RIP Rajesh Khanna
