Many had earlier similarly asked before Mr. Augustine from Dubai wrote: " Why has the Industry totally ignored the "Phenomenon" Rajesh Khanna? What crime has he committed that he does not find favor among his peers?".

Among other this I said was; "What force was behind that? Business?,..."

I further poked from business stand-point by saying: "Do Bollywood industry economically need a SUPERSTAR?". Does it really give the industry an advantage in marketing? In the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, now? etc..."

At initial stage, I'll ignore the possibility of the existence of a business within a business. i.e. Bolywood industry being hijacked (or deeply influence) by a bigger scope business.

What do other think? I would like to hear opinions of others.

Thanks in advance

During end of 1990s or initial of 2000s, Rajesh Khanna has exprssed his views something like this: "presently the Film Industry has sold its moral and ethics in the hands of Mafias and Politically influencial persons; so he made himself aloof from the industry and the Industry has stopped making that Rajesh Khanna type standard social sober films." So I think this is one of the opinions you required herein.

Thanks Navin Sahab,

Overall I agree that the film industry can be used as a base/platform or launch/promote other businesses or politics. It can also be used as fashion/products launcher or culture/business trend setter. It a powerful mass media 'tool' to decoy and herd the public. We will surely touch this part.

If we were to ignore the hijack part above and just solely look at the industry business scope alone, I think there are also enough reasons and motives to corner the "phenomenal" superstar. After all they did not plan for a "phenomenon" to happen and surely they were not ready to cope with the 'baggage' that came with the "superstar".

In the next message I'll try to explain that. It is just for the sole purpose that we may at least understand what had overwhelmed our Superstar. With that understanding I hope all fellow fans of Rajesh Khanna can ease down from the "anger" to "why?" the cold treatment to Rajesh Khanna Sahab.

Note that "angry" belongs to Amitabh. Rajesh taught us how to "smiles".

In the 60s and 70s Bollywood Film industry had almost captured and in control of the entertainment industries in India. The only competitors I can think of are the Circus & some life shows, and maybe the Hollywood industry. I am not so sure about MGR and the Tamil Film industry in Madras/Cennai, it never seem like a competitor but rather a "complimenter" for mutual existence.

Besides the 1 Billion people in India, Bollywood films also do have followers in South East Asia (richer market but only with 300~400Million people; Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Champa ( Cambodia ), Brunei and Singapore), then few more hundred millions from Africa, the Middle East & Communist block countries, etc. With the big enough internal market in India, the international market is just some extra bonus. The internal market was enough to support the industry, and the industry too was originally for the internal market.

For marketing strategy purposes, Bollywood in my opinion do not need any SUPERSTAR. It was going well and fine with the various line-up of Mega-stars. The industry already had the internal market under control by completely swept the market share. The competition between the list of 3 or 4 Mega stars, provided good choices and less demanding cost to the producers and the share-holders (mainly the distributors). Why need just the ONE,superstar?; it will be hard to manage and control the demands and the EGO of the one Superstar? "He" may end up being the bottle next.

A "SUPERSTAR" is appropriately needed to promote a particular business. Referring to American Soccer (Thokar) for example. In the early 80s, Pele from Brazil was playing for the New York Cosmos to promote interest among the American public towards soccer. Still American love other sports; American football, baseball and basketball. Ongoing promotion continues, now they have David Beckham in LA Galaxy trying out again.

Bollywood in my opinion did not need any Superstar then, but .... Out of control, in the late 60s and early 70s, Rajesh Khanna just phenomenally became a Superstar. It caught a lot of producers and distributors by surprise. It was not a good business situation for them. Rajesh had become a popular "product." He had created a bottle neck for them producers and distributors. Then they also to some extent lost some control...a natural "phenomena" had happened.

Together, collectively, they must do some DAMAGE CONTROL.

With the ongoing globalization with the borderless and the shrinking world, the strategy may have to change now. Bollywood may need a superstar to compete against Hollywood and Hong Kong. But the concept of a Superstar was not welcome in the '70s.

There is my theory...What is the opinion of others?

It seems that you have very deep knowldge about hindi film industry. However, one fact is undebatable that the Phenomenal histeria born in hindi film world with the introduction of Rajesh Khanna was a natural happening and it was not man made like today's self promotion of Amit and SRK etc. So Rajesh Khanna himself could not be able to maintain the phenomenal histeria life long. In fact nobody can do this. But this phenomenal histeria had nothing to do with his superb perforamance. This histeria belonged only to his extra ordinary charm and superb glamorous attraction that can never be seen in the hindi film world neither before him nor after him. But in general people mix up this phenomenal histeria with his inborn natural and original capability as a superb performer. This should not be happened. Irrespective of hit or flop of his films, there has been a sperfine performer in Rajesh Khanna, which makes him unparallel forever.

Thanks.

Not that I have deep knowledge on the Industry. It is just that the question "why" was with me since the late '70s. I just do not understand "why" a less talented actor was given much undeserving publicity over not just Rajesh Khanna, but co-actors, Dharmendra & Shashi Kapoor. What I had shared is just my theory, and I'll welcome critics and comments to make it even closer to the actual happening. Hopefully with the understanding, it will help reduce the creeping tension that is in all Rajesh Khanna fans.

This question has disturbed me also during my college days (post 1975 )when Mehabooba, Anurodh, Karm, Palko Ki Chaon Mein, Prem Bandhan etc, did not click at the Box office as per exceptations. But today I am confident that genuine talent can not be suppressed by manipulation. And for this very genuine reason today Rajesh Khanna has been conferred with large number of high profile honours and awards such as Living legend, Pride of the Film Industry, Glory of India, Yugantar Gaurav Award as well as several Life Time Achievement Awards etc. in spite of zero self promotion.

Yes, late 1970s, but how long it continued. Just only from 1975-1978. Amar Deep onwards (1979) Rajesh Khanna established his seperate entity as a superb performer with fine polished high profile performances in films like Thodi si Bewafai, Red Rose, Agar Tum Na Hote, Amrit, Akhir Kyon type class films which still ruled in our mind and heart. So he has been designated as the Pride of the Film Industry. So the question of any type of tension does not arise. Thanks,

1 point I think is we kaka fans miss is that audience taste was also changing. That is when amit caught their fancy with the 'angry young man" image - that of a crusader who fights the establishment. The political & economic scenario at that time also suited him.
Kaka was at that time still doing romantic films (mostly).
Added to that his films fared badly at the B.O.

Audience's test might be changed at that time. But which audience, only Ricksha poolers, Venders, immature mentality college students and cheap entertainment mentality audiences. No sober and shopisticated famil men went to see these nonsense like Lawaris, Namakhalal, Kalia, Amar Akbar, Sarabi, Satte pe Satta, Giraftar etc.etc.etc..... However, the number of these audiences is always greater, so the box office result was in favour of Amit. But nobody remember the box office result after its first release. It is the quality of films that is remembered forever. And Rajesh Khanna is far far superior than any other star of India including Amit for this very genuine reason.

Yes I agree that the most critical one is that "they had changed the game; from Melody Dramas to Rocky Actions". Zanjeer did not do much, but when Sholay was a success, Bollywood believed in themselves that they can make action movies with the best of them (in the world). Action movies are where Rajesh Khanna was vulnerable at. He was not very athletic.

But Abhiman and Kabhie-Kabhie were not "Rocky" action. They were by two directors whom Rajesh performed magnificently in the prior movies (Anand & Bawarchi for Hririkesh, then Daag; for Raj Copra in the debut for Yash Raj Film)? Yash Chopra as a matter of fact had admitted that Rajesh Khanna did not demand a price for his performance. It was up to Yash Chopra to weight. Again he was helping a friend, as usual. Why was he deserted that soon in Kabhie-Kabhie after previous success in Daag?

Then again why did Yash Chopra commented during an interview with Karan Johar that 8 movies of Rajesh flopped before the released of Daag? Why did he have to say that? What are those 8 movies?

I can still remember Rajesh Khanna saying: back in the late '70s that some of the friends that he helped, had "betrayed" him. In mu opinion the force behind that is definitely "money" in the form of investments, distributions & promotions of movies after released

Yash Chopra is betrayed Rajesh Khanna, if he told such things. Daag is originally produced by Rajesh Khanna and directed by Yash Chopra and it was made under the banner Yashraj films (Yash +Rajesh). During that period Yash detached from B.R. Chopra and wanted badly to establish himself. And Rajesh Khanna helped him in this manner. Further, Rajesh Khanna too performed in some action films and presented much much better impact than the usually registered action heors. To name some films are Sacjja Jhoota, Roti, Ashanti, Rajpoot, Dharam Aur Kanoon, Hum Sakal, Dharm Kanta, etc. But yes, his action films were too with a storyline, unlike Amit and others which were mainly based on lost and found formula without any story. Abhiman and Kabhi-2 : In Abhiman Amit got the chance by the mercy of Hrishida on the recommendation of Jaya Bhaduri. However, Rajesh never did accept this films because he performed with Jaya in Bawarchi as Brother-Sister relationship and this was on Husband-wife relation. Further, in Kabhi-2 Amit performed the old age role most ridiculously. If Rajesh performed in his place, it would have been much much better impact. But actually from that time the capturing strategy by Amit begun in different camps, which Rajesh never bothered and performed simultaneously on the one hand with Hrishida, Shaktida, Chopras', Desai,etc. and Miraz (Palko ki Chaon mein), Ismail Shraff (Thodi si bewafai), Danny (Phir Wohi Raat), Janta Hawaldar (Mehamood), Amar Deep, Red Rose (unknown director from South)AA Aab Laut chalien (Rishi Kapoor) etc. and gave equal impact in all these films characterising variety of characters. In fact we never think over the name of Directors/Camp while viewing Rajesh Khanna films, as Rajesh Khanna's impact and screen presence were equal in every cases.

yash chopra had said that kaka gave 5 flops in a row before daag & yet he cast him. I saw this interview in filmfare.

rajsh did act in action roles like U mentioned, but they were not erally actoin roles per se. Also, the time gap between the films were huge.

Rajesh got offers to work with jaya after baawwrachi but kaka refused since jaya had referred to him as a "brother' in one of her interviews.

Red rose was directed by bharathiraja who is a renowned director down south. He has also diercted "saverey waali gaadi" (sunny deol & poonam dhillon) & lovers (kumar gaurav)

Sanjay Sahab,

5 or 8 flops? I have the Daag VCD at home. At the end of the movie, there is a interview with Karan Johar on the making of Daag. Clearly he mentioned 8 flops. Probably he gave 2 diffierent conflicting interviews? If then he was really lying.

I remember reading his interview in filmfare where he mentioned 5. But maybe I am wrong.

5 or 7, yash is wrong. If indeed kaka had so many flops then why did he sign him as hero?\

That too it was his 1st film. He could have signed another actor.

Yash chopa is a past master at backstabbing people.

He did it to vinod khaana in chandni, sunny deol in darr etc.,

Daag: A Poem of Love (1973).... Sunil Kohli
... aka Daag: A Poem of Love (India: English title: informal title)--- Super Hit (Silver jubilee)

2. Joroo Ka Ghulam (1972).... Rajesh--
--- Average grosser

3. Anuraag (1972).... Gangaram-- Silver jubilee hit and Rajesh Khanna won Filmfare Special Award as Guest performance in the character of Bhojpuri Flower seller and a superhit song was picturised on him: "Ram Kare Babua, Hamar Phulwa ko Hamari Nazar lag jai...."

4. Apna Desh (1972).... Akash-- Silver Jubilee super hit

5. Bawarchi (1972).... Raghu (Bawarchi)-- Super hit

6. Dil Daulat Duniya (1972).... Vijay-- Flop

7. Maalik (1972).... Raju-- Flop

8. Mere Jeevan Saathi (1972).... Prakash-- Average grosser

9. Shehzada (1972).... Rajesh--- Flop
... aka Shahzada

In this way only three flops. Further, Rajesh helped financially to Yash during making of Dag and that Yash later united with Amit and made several films without Rajesh. What a dishonest person?

In Abhiman, Is the insecure husband singer or the performing wife singer would be the center role? I felt the center role is the male lead actor in the husbnd singer, but it seem otherwise to the director. It must have been the wife singer to Hririskesh, because he had stuck with Jaya Bhaduri as the lead role and then let her decide the lead actor? Is it because of her Bengal connection, that her camp with Hrishikesh Mukerji is stronger than the influent of a reigning superstar?

As for Yash Chopra, he too have stronger relation with Rakhee Gulzar than he is with Rajesh. Was it a bad combination with Rakhee & Rajesh? or was there tension between Sharmila & Rakhee during the filming of Daag? Rakhee nonetheless proceed to be with Yash Chopra in Kabhie-Kabhie, Doosra Aadmi, Trishul & Kaala Patthar

Apna desh was a blockbuster, bawarchi was a hit & mere jeevan saathi was avg. The rest, i think flopped.

But either way, as u said, yash has lied.

He has been awarded the most powerful man in the industry award by filmfare so he can afford to talk any nonsense.
