Rajesh Khanna was the first superstar of Bollywood. No star has gained the kind of popularity he has received till date. The girls were so attracted to him that they would write letters for him in blood and would even kiss their car. But do you know that a star as big as Rajesh Khanna could not see the success of an actor like Amitabh Bachchan and cried bitterly in a closed room?
This thing happened when Rajesh Khanna was working in the film ‘Bawarchi’. Jaya Bhaduri was the heroine of Rajesh Khanna in that film. Since Jaya had an affair with Amitabh Bachchan in those days, Amitabh would come on the sets to meet Jaya daily but the same thing was known to Rajesh Khanna. They think that so much time is wasted everyday in the affair of this actor.
He remained silent for a few days, but suddenly one day Rajesh Khanna heard a lot of Amitabh Bachchan in front of Jaya Bhaduri.
Jaya did not tolerate all this and he also bluntly told Rajesh Khanna that the actor you are making fun of today, one day he will become a bigger star than you.
Rajesh Khanna ignored Jaya’s talk and left. It is said that his stardom had become so much dominated by Rajesh Khanna that he did not listen to anyone. His anger and the discussion of Attitude echoed in the film corridors.
As a result, gradually the people of the film industry started distancing themselves from Rajesh Khanna. On the one hand, films were going out of the hands of Rajesh Khanna, while Amitabh Bachchan was gradually climbing the ranks of success. Discussions of his popularity were spreading all around.
Rajesh Khanna did not even know about Amitabh Bachchan’s popularity till then or to say that he was not able to digest Amitabh’s popularity and was deliberately becoming unknown … but his bandage was removed when a program During Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh were present together … but people surrounded Rajab Khanna and surrounded Amitabh Bachchan and started asking for autographs.
Seeing such a form of Amitabh Bachchan, the ground slipped under the feet of Rajesh Khanna. He was shocked that he could not handle himself and came home crying bitterly in a closed room.
