You know, I'm increasingly feeling like a classroom teacher! But you've got to READ the article please. If you do, you'll see that they made that one thing the headline whereas she was most matter-of-fact about it, that he began coming late on set after 'Aradhana'. Now this is hardly news. He was known and reviled for doing that! But she goes on to say that others like Shatru and Sanjeev were worse in this respect. And then she says some very nice things too. But the headline of the article is such that it implies a negative tone whereas it was not that at all. By the way, the full excerpt is available in the link below.

The old forum regulars know me - I like facts :-) lest I be accused, as I was in another thread by a newbie that I was just another Kaka groupie!

In someway, Aradhana too changed Sharmilla.

Aradhana changed he image from a shamiless "Bikini girl" with Shammi Kapoor to a homely motherly image in Aradhana.

She is just jealous of him. She is willing to stoop to that low after he has died. Funny, when he was alive, she said a lot of the good about him. Rajesh did mention in an interview that he is grateful to her for acting with him. It just shows her low class. I am really surprised that people like her, tanuja did not even attend the prayers or the funeral.

Since Childhood I am watching movies of Rajesh Khanna. I have seen his craze in my own family. My Mother, My Aunts, My Unlces all are great fans of Rajesh Khanna. I still remember how my uncle used to do hairstyle like him to attract girls... and I still remember the story how my elder aunt went from home through window on her haldi rasm night just to watch Rajesh Khanna movie..,even though It was strictly not allowed to go out..These all are unbelievable stories..No star has earned this much love and craze like Rajesh Khanna did. I remember women crying next to me while watching Anand...I remeber Women shouting and Screaming on his Second time Entry in Movie Daag...Even Amitabh had confessed that Rajesh Khanna got more love and Affection from people than him...and he can not get the popularity of Rajesh Khanna...No actor can be loved by his fans the was Rajesh Khanna was loved ....These all stories got refreshed after his very sad demise...I still remember watching his song Shayad meri shadi ka khayal with Tina munim..or Pyar Diwana hota hai Mastana hota hai...or chala Jata hu kisi ki dhun me....He is always there in our memories..the way he said in Advt..Mere Fans koi nahi chhin sakta....soooo True!!! Anand Marate nahi..!!!

To be honest, I was going through the pictures at the prayer. And I was suprised to find Akshay Kumar smiling and his son is wearing a red scarf around him and he has a very big smile.

Is this normal in India ? Where I come from, there would be sadness or not joy.

"Old world etiquette suggests that you can skip a wedding but never a funeral. After all, that’s when the family needs all the support it can muster. It’s also a matter of prestige if a chautha is well-attended. According to Hindu scriptures, mourning should not be suppressed, joyously released. Then, it’s back to life."

Thanks for the reply. It is so sad looking at his pictures and reading how his family left him and what he went through....He was indeed a superstar. Really wished that he could see how much people do love him when he was alive. The only superstar that Indian cinema will ever have. May his soul rest in peace.
