Remembering Rajesh Khanna, friend Prakash Rohra said- ‘Live the life of glory till the last breath, uncle, but’

Mumbai: 9 years have passed since Bollywood veteran actor Rajesh Khanna left the world. Rajesh Khanna died on 18 July 2012 due to cancer. The famous actor by the name of Kaka was not only a superstar of his time but was also a brilliant personality. The dialogues of Rajesh Khanna’s superhit film ‘Anand’ are repeated even today. Kaka used to find the character of this film very close to his real life.

Prakash Rohra shared many memories on the death anniversary of Rajesh Khanna. Prakash is the owner of a music company, as well as was a special friend and business partner of Rajesh Khanna. Talking to the Times, Prakash told that ‘He was a very lively person. Rajesh lived like a king till the last moment of his life. I have never seen a sad person like him in my whole life. Whatever was told in the media about his family and financial condition is wrong, because I am a witness to his life. Whatever the media wrote about him, he often used to say that it was the media that helped me during my struggle days.

Prakash says that he often used to say that ‘we are Khatris and we give to daughters and do not take anything from them. Dimple ji took care of him till his last time. She lived with him for twenty-four hours. I have seen their bonding even before Kakaji fell ill. Akshay Kumar was like a friend. One more thing I would like to mention here that once Kaka ji and Dimple got a call from a radio station. When a listener asked Dimple the secret of her beauty, Kaka ji took the mic and said ‘I am’ on her behalf. Once, before going on a trip, Dipal ji went shopping and brought Kaka’s favorite cigarette and sun glasses. But he was not wearing it on the trip, when Dimple ji insisted a lot, he wore it and said ‘Lag raha hoon na Rajesh Khanna?’ At the time of illness, Kakaji gave a DVD of his film ‘Anand’ to his doctor because his real life was also very similar to the character of this film.

He was disappointed by some of Rajesh Khanna’s friends whose uncle had helped in the early stages of his career. He used to say ‘relationship in this industry changes from Friday to Friday’. I remember a press person asking ‘Why can’t he and Amitabh Bachchan come together again’ while receiving the Life Time Achievement Award at the hands of Amitabh Bachchan? Kakaji immediately said ‘Why not? But the producer of the film should be the producer.
