Pushpa I hate Tears Re… RIP Rajesh Khanna

18 Jul

Remembering his lines in ‘Amar Prem’ with Sharmila Tagore, and many more such dialogues he mouthed in so many movies the numero uno ‘loverboy’ of Indian Cinema, Rajesh Khanna was the guy next door everyone wanted to take home. Women cutting veins in frenzy, kissing his car leaving lipstick marks all over it,queuing up for hours to get a glimpse of the man who made ‘Babu Moshai’ a common acronym for Monsieur, he was the first to give the Indian Cine Star the ‘Superstar’ status.Fondly known as kaka, he was a phenomena nobody can deny or replace ever

Can’t forget the simplistic smile, the tilted head shake and the kite flying hand actions in songs like ‘Jai Jai Shiv Shankar’ from ‘Aap ki Kasam’ with Mumtaz or ‘Aaj na chodenge bas hamjoli’ from Kati Patang with Asha Parekh, or ‘Ye shaam mastani’ from Anand.

He will be dearly missed by many fans of yesteryears and of course the others in the middle and of coming ages.

Some of my favorite dialogues from his movies as a tribute:

Are o Pushpa, I hate tears re : Amar Prem

It is so simple to be happy but so difficult to be simple : Bawarchi

Zindagi badi honi chahiye lambi nahi: Anand

Main marne se pehle marna nahin chahta : Safar

Babumoshai, Zindagi aur maut uparwale ke haath hai Jahanpanah, jise na aap badal sakte hai na mein. Hum sab toh rangmanch ki kathputlian hain, jiski door uparwale ke haath bandhi hai. Kab, Kaun, Kaise uthega, yeh koi nahi janta.Ha Ha Ha : Anand
