New Delhi: Crowned as the Hindi film industry's first official superstar, Rajesh Khanna had a very distinct persona. He was never considered as the most handsome man of Bollywood but his charm was irresistible. Khanna's strength lied in his understanding of the popular mindset.
He never presented himself as a 'hero' who could beat up a dozen people easily, but he never succumbed under pressure too.
His brand of romance required complete submission from the heroines because love for him was an integral part of his heroines' roles.
Today is his first death anniversary as Khanna left the world on July 18, 2012. Here is a playlist to remember Rajesh Khanna through some of his immortal songs.
