Besides the "lucky" bangalow, Rajesh Khanna was also superstitious and believe the initial "RK" will bring him "luck" in the steps of Raj Kapoor and Rajendra Kumar.
Actually by graze of God, he was blessed even much more than the two incumbents.
i do not think that he ever used the name RK in the verse of SRK. Rather Kaka is the more significant short name for him....

comparision between rajesh khanna and dharmentra is futile. Dharmendra has been one of the most versatile talents in the mould of Dileep Kumar, Raj Kapoor etc. whereas Rajesh Khanna, though a good actor, was not as versatile.

I understand the appeal of Dharmendra, he was first of all the most handsome of the Indian actors. The combination of his masculinity and intense looks made him very desirable indeed. But still when it comes to charms and a aloof sensuality, no one beats Rajesh Khanna. It is as if they are two different perspectives of a desirable man, you would like to have both but if you had to choose then RK would be it, but you would repent deeply that you had to make a choice.
(ps: when I talk of Dharmendra, I do not include his later action-hero career)

Girls hate Rajesh Khanna because they was deceived on the nature of men with multiple relationships.......

We man understand the desire and the manhood of Rajesh Khanna and Dharam.

....what I do not understand is why Dharam has to be a Muslim on paper to take a Hindu as a 2nd wife? Polygamy historically and Vedically was OK with Hinduism.

Dharmendhara is an excellent actor. Satayakam, Karodhi,Sholay,Chupke Chupke , Mera gaon Mera Desh, Phool or Pathar etc
Dharmji is no Rajesh Khanna . Amitabha Bachan is even less of Rajesh Khanna.
Rajesh Ji and Amitabh entered the Movie World as about the same time. When the game was played by the rules it was Amitabh could not accept audiences to appreciate him. Try as hard as He would.Amitabh had more flops and frankly he looks and acts silly in Bombay to Goa , Bhandhe Haath,Pyar Ki Kahani etc. I challenge any Amit fans to go back and look at his early films when acting was a requiste skills in the era of Dharmendhra , Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor et al. Amitabh has no expressions . Even look at Anand other than having the monotonus voice required by the role Amitabh adds nothing to that performance with one exception. He can get pretty angry when required or not required. The same is true in Namak Haram. Amitabh owes salim Javed his entire success. They seem to have recognized this and they knew how to capitalize on this . This was the formula that was Amitabh Bachan from Zanjeer to Agnipath. Indians never got tired or bored of it. The Beard Amitabh has grown in recent years is to hide the fact that He is unable to give any dramatic expressions. Amitabh with his height can look cool and tower above shorter actors. He can look good running because of lean build. The rest really is special effects . Sylvestor Stalone or Arnold shawartzneger or even tom cruise are never confused with Cary Grant or Robert Redford or Tom Hanks or Marlon Brando. Amitabh Bachan is a less muscular Stalone.
I agree Amitabh is an exce llent marketing man, business man , salesman , politician or anything else you want to call him but a great actor He is not. To compare him with Rajesh Khanna is an insult to great acting.
The only thing Rajesh Khanna could not do was action - not due to weaker acting skills but because of his physique . A younger Rajesh Khanna in Raaz in action was fine. Mysterious , elegant , stylish and much more..
In Namak Haram when Vicky starts to despise Rajesh khanna's character Amitabh is angrily talking, drinking to express his frustration - Rajesh Khanna is able to express his emotions without the use of any words - simply with gestures - He is able to show his love for his friend and how much he wants him to join the cause and how dissappointed He at his fried and at the same time He accepts and appreciated his anger to the point where He takes a slap from him. Rajesh could have negotiated that away. The man was fair to the movie.
I think you get the picture
