Another copy paste from Google page of Rajesh Khanna to prove his popularity in present context is much much higher than any one without any manipulation:

The 20-year itch
Leena Chandavarkar makes a comeback after 20 years, in a television show where she will star opposite Rajesh Khanna
Yesteryear actress Leena Chandavarkar and Rajesh Khanna, who have given us hits like Mehboob Ki Mehndi and Mamta Ki Chhao Mein way back in the 1970s, will be paired opposite each other in a television show.
The new show titled Bhabhima will be directed by Raj Kamal and will be a family drama with a mix of fresh faces and veteran actors from the television industry. The shooting will begin from December 26.
Says Raj Kamal,“Both Leena and Rajesh loved their roles as well as the story. Leena has already signed the contract. Rajesh however, will sign the papers after he returns from Delhi.”
Speaking about the show, he says,“The story revolves around a very wealthy and close-knit Rajput family whose members go separate ways due to misunderstandings between themselves. Leena plays a very docile woman while, her husband played by Rajesh Khanna, is an obstinate man who doesn't compromise on his values for anything. The soap focuses on the importance of family values in a modern day society.”
Adds Raj,“It will be a mega-budget show with lavish sets and costumes.”
Leena Chandavarkar is getting back to acting after a hiatus of 20 years. So, why on the small screen?
Says Leena,“Raj has been asking me to act in his shows for the last eight years. A part of our bungalow was given out for shooting purposes because of which Raj and I had interacted with each other. During our interactions, he would persistently ask me to take up acting. I had promised him that if I start work again it would be with him. Hence, I am simply keeping my promise.”
She adds,“The role is very good one and suits my age. I had always wanted to play a feudal lord's wife. I am supposed to be paired opposite Rajeshji. He is a very nice person and I am looking forward to working with him again.”
Adds Leena,“I do not want accept too much of work as I want to do quality work at the moment. I am on a strict diet in order to get back into shape. Everybody is encouraging me to act in more serials.”
Major,

How dare...Leena said this ".....I am supposed to be paired opposite Rajeshji. He is a very nice person and I am looking forward to working with him again.”

Didn't she know that Rajesh Khanna was accused of "Raping"??

No, but as per stories Kaka prefers to woo girls/ladies half of his age only right from Dimple,Tima Mumnim etc.
In this case Leena must be very old by Kaka's standard.

Thanks God i am not a lawyer.

Actually...."Character assignation" is an old trick of mafia cartels.

They even done it on prophets of God.

Prophet Joseph of the Israelites for example.

Understood.
But this will not go well with Ashu......
And sadly, Khanna will be tagged as a loser.
Ooops!

I mean "Character Assignation" thru rape and womanizing attempt.

I had seen it was once fraudulently done to oust the former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia too.

sabiha accused kaka of trying to rape her during the making of 'anokha rishtha', but it found few takers.

I once read in filmfare that when actress mousami was pregnant, kaka asked her whether the father was her husband or vinod mehra.

To which mousimi asked kaka whether the father of the baby in dimple's womb was him or rishi kapoor.

Which baby?

Twinkle looks have some resemblances of Rajesh Khanna.

Rajesh Khanna signed 8 films
8.1.2008

He was the first person in Hindi cinema to have been given the term superstar. He was last witnessed on the big screen in Jaana – Let’s fall in love (if you overlook the special effect appearance in Om Shanti Om ) but the film failed to gather any curiosity at the box-office. But now it is heard that Rajesh Khanna is planning to make a comeback and is on a signing spree.

In an interview given to a trade magazine he said,“I am surprised and charged because I have signed eight new films in a short span of time. Wafaa is almost complete. I have an exciting role in it for the actor in me. In a way I am depending on this film. It will give me an idea about where I stand today and how I see my future as an actor.”

Wafaa is a film which is directed by Rakhi Sawant’s brother Rakesh Sawant.
The other films that Khanna has in his kitty are Jaanleva (again directed by Rakesh Sawant), Vijay, Do Dilo Ke Khel Mein and Kaash... Mere Hote (produced by Shravan of Nadeem-Shravan fame). He also had signed for a film Tum Mere Ho which was to be directed by Pakistani comedian Umar Sharif.

I have read that there is no similarity between them. In Wafaa (a crime thriller) Rajesh Khanna is performing the character of a very rich old aged businessman who marries a young girl (just half of his age) and the girl has developed a post marital affiars, which occurs murder of perhaps both of them by Rajesh Khanna in the end or so. So I think it has nothing to do with Nishbad which had the abnormal theme for Indians.

Here is someone from film industry talking about Kaka..Very few know what kaka has done for friends..
http://movies.indiainfo.com/features/rajesh-0...
Jaana also brings back Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman on the big screen. How was it working with such senior actors?
Very few people know that my parents got married at Rajesh Khanna's house. My father did not have money for his marriage. He was a writer then and he wrote Dhanwan for Rajesh Khanna. And today I am working with him. In fact it was like a surprise for him. He looked at my mother and said I saw this kid when he was very small and look at him now. Today he is 23 years old and acting with me. However, I never met Rajeshji and Zeenatji before in my life but all I can say about her is that she (Zeenat) is the most gorgeous mother that any young man can have. She defines the beauty that nobody can. I am glad and so happy that I have had her as a mother in my very first film. Anjana is a very homely girl. I always told her that she is marriage material. She is very sweet and always very co-operative and humble. She does a lot of rehearsal and totally concentrates on her work.

Excerpts from the interviews:

Personally, for me, the interviews serve as a weapon as well — against friends who say that Rafi is a better singer than Kishore.

Pyarelal(Laxmikant-Pyarelal):“ The Pancham-Kishore-Rajesh Khanna combination was truly divine.”

This is a part of life history of Rajesh Khanna from Wikipedia pages, which shows that Rajesh Khanna is still active in a most sophisticated manner without any media hype:
Khanna and Dimple Kapadia separated in the early 1980s, but still they are fulfilling all the responsibilities of their social life especially in establishing the life of their daughters. Their elder daughter Twinkle who is an interior decorator is married to current star Akshay Kumar and younger daughter Rinkee is married to a businessman, after getting higher study from USA.
Khanna was a Member of Parliament for the New Delhi constituency (1991-96).
He is the life member of International Film And Television Research Centre and International Film And Television Club Of Asian Academy Of Film & Television. Recently he announced his appearance in a spate of forthcoming films for which he is hopeful of renewing previous success. He is also going to participate as Celebrity Judge in a reality show at Sony Channel called K for Kishore, based on the legendary singer late Kishore Kumar . He is also going to perform in a T.V. Serial Bhabhima with Leena Ganguly as Lead Pair of the serial.

A good news for Kaka fans.

Just few minutes back I was searching details about K for Kishore programme, wherein it has been found by me that about 2 dozens postings are meant for Rajesh Khanna for calling him as Celebrity Judge. Amazing !

Rajesh Khanna joined the film industry in 1966 after winning an All India Talent Contest through a nation wide selection procedure by panel of judges like Late Bimal Roy, Guru Dutt, Chetan Anand, G.P. Sippy, Sri Sakti Samanta, Sri B. R. Chopra, etc., making his film debut was in Aakhri Khat which went unnoticed. He appeared in a few more films over the next two years which did not gain him any recognition. He shot to fame with the 1969 film Aradhana which was hugely successful at the box office. From then on he was an extremely popular actor in the early 1970s, appearing in many high impact romantic films and melodramas which were hugely successful at the box office. He was often paired with actresses Mumtaz or Sharmila Tagore. Some of his most successful films in this period included Anand (1970), Amar Prem (1971), Andaaz (1971), Daag (1973) and Namak Haraam (1973). During his heyday he would be mobbed during public appearances. Fans kissed his car, which would be covered with lipstick marks, and lined the road, cheering and chanting his name. Female fans sent him letters written in their own blood [1] From 1969 to 1973 he had 15 consecutive hit films, a journalist Devyani Chaubal dubbed him "phenomenon" when he was at his peak. Several of the popular songs sung by Kishore Kumar in the 1970s were picturized on Khanna and helped his films become historically successful as well as Kishore Kumar got the unbeatable position as a King Singer after given voice to this most charming face. Besides a most glamorous star, Khanna is a well known most versatile performer, who performed the characters of all walks of real life and gave meaningful positive messages to the audiences. And this makes him as the one and only Sober and Household Hindi Film Star of the Nation.
