Bollywood’s first superstar Rajesh Khanna, who ruled the Indian filmmaking industry in the 1960s and 70s, died in Mumbai last Wednesday due to illness and the news of his death has left millions of his fans in sorrow.

The 69-year-old actor, who came to prominence in 1969 with ‘Aradhana’, was taken to the Lilawati hospital a few days back but a day after being discharged from the hospital he passed away at his home.

The news of Khanna, who was ailing since April, was confirmed by his actor son-in-law Akshay Kumar.

“My father-in-law is no more. He has gone to a nice and heavenly place. I am happy that he has gone there and hope that everyone will pray for him,” Akshay told waiting reporters and fans outside ‘Ashirwad’.

Rajesh Khanna was famously known for his romantic roles due to which millions of swooning women followed him throughout his career.

However, superstar like Shah Rukh Khan is also very upset on Khanna’s death and while expressing his feelings he insisted that Rajesh Khanna was the one who defined today’s era.

“To live with intention and walk to the edge. Play with abandon, choose with no regret. Smile and made us do the same. Sir, you defined our era. Whenever life felt tough u made us feel how love could change it all. RIP,” SRK tweeted.

Apart from actors, the political fraternity including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee expressed their feelings for Khanna as well.

“I convey my heartfelt condolences to the members of the bereaved family and countless fans and admirers of Shri Rajesh Khanna,” Singh said in his condolence message.

“Rajesh Khanna was always a symbol of romance. His smiling face and the ability to connect with people at ease had made him popular. We lost a big pole star in the film world today,” West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said.

Well, all said and done, the reason behind Rajesh Khanna’s illness is still a mystery because no one has yet told anything to the media.
