Bollywood's first superstar Rajesh Khanna - the man who spelled magic all around during the seventies enjoyed a hysteria that probably no other B-town superstar has been able to achieve.
||BIG B, RAJESH KHANNA AND SHAH RUKH KHAN
Interestingly, the SHAHENSHAH of Bollywood Mr. Bachchan and the BAADSHAH of the tinsel town Shah Rukh Khan are inspired by Rajesh Khanna. Big B's super iconic status and SRK's stardom as the ‘King of Romance' takes a leaf from Rajesh Khanna's superstardom deeds.
Mr. Bachchan is icon for the icons of today, during his early days Amitji always dreamt of becoming a star like Rajesh Khanna, he said once, “I dream of becoming a star like Rajesh Khanna.”
Not many people know - Bollywood current ‘King Of Romance' Shah Rukh Khan has adapted Rajesh Khanna (popularly known as kaka) trademark mannerism in his on screen romanticism.
Take any romantic number from SRK's list and at a particular point you will notice the famous tilted nod that is similar to Rajesh Khanna's trademark tilted shake/nod of face, we have seen in songs and during the end of his dialogue deliveries… hai wahi re… remember..
Hailed as the first superstar of Indian cinema and the original ‘King of Romance' - Rajesh Khanna is not present between us but the star has his FAN following still intact. His stardom motivated Big B to become Bollywood's biggest icon and today it's hard to imagine Shah Rukh Khan in those evergreen songs without that trademark tilted nod.
