2.***** Actor Biswajit taught him how to wear Bengali style dhoti in Amar Prem.

3.***** Rajesh Khanna went abroad to see Marlon Brando film ‘’Last tango in Paris”.He watched the film several times with wife Dimple.R K was great admirer and follower ofHollywood actor Marlon Brando.

4.***** Rajesh Khanna watched ‘Nishipadma”Bengali version of Amar Prem acted by Uttam Kumar 37 times.

5.***** Rajesh Khanna ‘s most unforgettable moment ...when Nargis ji wanted wanted autograph from him and he was stunned !!Nargisji told him that her daughter Namrata requested that.

10.******** There were rumours of flings in between,one with his favourite co-star Mumtaz.They were neighbours and inseparable on filmsets,their camaraderie and closeness on outdoor shoots fed gossip colums in film magazines.But they never acknowledged their relationships .But soon after Khanna’s wedding Mumtaz left films,Mumbai and India to marry the London based Bbusiness man Mayur Madhavani.

Did you know - that in his mansion - ashirwad - there is a sea facing room - it is hexegon shaped and the whole room is a BED!
So when you walk in - the floor is a big huge bed with relaxing surrounding of the ocean - that must be awesome!

Another rarely known fact is that Rajesh Khanna was so close to RD Burman - that when RD suffered a heart attack in London - Rajesh got on the first available flight - with out packing or visa ect ect
He just needed to get to his friend asap -

RK was well known for coming very late for shooting. In his earlier days at his peek someone said to him that AB comes on time fpor all his shootings and Kaka replied "clerks come early"

Soon after, AB became a superstar.

As per my record of old magazine collection, Kaka never said it; his version was that we artists are not Clerks to work 10-5. For perfect expressions we need specific mood and environment where boundation of timing creates tension and with tension nobody can give perfect expression.

It is a great news. Would it be aired via any Bangla channel like Zee Bangla, Star Jalsa, Rupashi Bangla, etc.
Pl. do continue in this forum and pl. share your information about RK-RD combo. Last Saturday some Saturday Club at Kolkata arranged a function to tribute Kakaji.

Regd. Unknown facts about Kakaji--During his tenure as Hon'ble M.P. from New Delhi, there was one case of suspension of a Govt. employee on the ground that he constructed an additional room in his Govt. quarters. Kaka met the Minister of Delhi Dev. Authority sector and justified the above construction as follows--
The Govt. quarters usually are so small that when no. of family members increases gradually it becomes very difficulty to maintain peace in the quarters due to paucity of space in term of study of the kids of the employees. Further, when the son of an Govt. employees married, he needs a separate room for privacy etc. So due to lack of requisite space facilities the Govt. employees get tensed and a tensed person can not work properly. So as a special case the above employee should not be punished and in future the Govt. quarters should be more spacious to avoid above problems. And the Govt. authority had to accept his justification.
Besides, he also helped many common people at Delhi by arranging jobs etc.
