50 Years of Sachaa Jhutha


Released 50 years ago on 1st May 1970 was a blockbuster film. It was the second-highest grosser of the year. It was an action-comedy film directed by Manmohan Desai. Rajesh Khanna was the hero with a double role as Ranjith & Bhola. The performance of Rajesh Khanna was critically acclaimed and he won the Filmfare Best Actor Award for 1971.
This film was initially offered to Shashi Kapoor but he refused the film because he did not want to work with Mumtaz. At the time Mumtaz was working in a lot of B Grade stunt films. Shashi did not want to work with a small heroine.

Bhola (Rajesh Khanna) is an innocent band musician who lives with his physically challenged sister Belu(Naaz) in a village. He needs more money for his sister's marriage and he sets off to Bombay. In Bombay, there is a wealthy Jewel Merchant as well as a smuggler Ranjit who is a look-alike of Bhola is suspected by the police 

inspector Pradhan(Vinod Khanna). The inspector has no evidence and searches for that. He creates a plan with Rita (Mumtaz) to attract Ranjith and to know his secret plans.
Bhola and Ranjit paths cross at a costume party Bhola in his original costume of a band player surprises Ranjit, he immediately conceives a plan. He takes Bhola to his place and reveals himself. He convinces Bhola to act like Ranjith in front of society as he is suffering from cancer and requires treatment. Until his return from treatment, Bhola has to make trust with everybody that he is Ranjith. Actually, Ranjith makes him himself so that he can continue with his diamond smuggling, meanwhile, there will not be any evidence, as Bhola is going to be Ranjith everywhere. But he did not reveal the reason for him. He also promises that he would give money for his sister's marriage. Innocent Bhola believes him and agrees to the plan.

Ranjith's girlfriend Ruby (Faryal) trains Bhola to be like Ranjith. In the meantime, Ranjith continues his underground work of diamond smuggling. And Inspector Pradhan cannot come to a conclusion. Rita moves intimately with Bhola thinking of him as Ranjith, but Bhola falls in love with her. 
During this time in the village, Bhola's sister loses everything due to heavy floods, decides to go to Bombay along with her dog to search for Bhola.
Pradhan meets Belu and helps her to reach the place. Belu is misguided by some men regarding the whereabouts of her brother and tries to exploit her, but Pradhan saves her from them and takes her to his home. Ruby, who follows Belu to Pradhan's house informs Ranjith about her. Ranjith, posing like her brother, goes to Pradhan's home and takes her with him.

Finally, Bhola unravels Ranjit's evil designs and threatens exposure, but is restrained by Belu's captivity. After a series of gunfights, fisticuffs, helicopter landings, dog chases (animal rights activists will feel tormented at the plight of Moti) both Bhola and Ranjit are arrested.
It’s a fun film with Rajesh doing an excellent job differentiating between the two characters. His chemistry with gorgeous Mumtaz as always is great, one year earlier both came together in a super hit film Do Raste and Bandhan.
Another highlight of the film is its music. All the songs were hit especially "Meri Pyari Behaniya Banegi Dulhania". Kalyanji Anandji gave the music with lyrics by Indivar, Gulshan Bawra, and Qamar Jalabadi,

Rajesh Khanna- Dev Anand was his Inspiration


Rajesh Khanna in an interview said that he was an ardent admirer of Dev Anand from his teens.When I joined films in 1967, I was highly inspired by his acting style. He was amongst the first to view Aradhana and compliment me genuinely. As I rose in stature as an actor in the early 70s, I received healthy and clean competition from Anand, who was still going strong with a super hit like Johny Mera Naam. 
He allowed Kishore Kumar to sing for me in Aradhana without a second thought. The songs of Aradhana made him the super star.
Rajesh Khanna was first taken by Chetan Anand in Aakhri Khat.It was during the muhurat he met ehis idol Dev Anand. Before that he used to come to see the shooting of Jewel Thief.
Rajesh Khanna, Yash Chopra's with Dev Anand

There were talks of Amit Khanna producing a film in which both were to have acted together. The film never went on floors. In fact, when Khanna’s films started flopping in the late 70s, Anand was the first to encourage him by saying, “Why are you losing confidence? You are a brilliant actor. Look at me and my ups and downs. You termed me the leap year hero. Have confidence in yourself and march forward keeping in mind that the coming days are yours.”
Song of Aradhana 1969

The Meteoric Rise of Rajesh Khanna


There has been no other star in the film industry who saw such a meteoric rise within such a short span of time.  He starred in 15 consecutive solos hit films from 1969 to 1971, still an unbroken record. He was the first Hindi actor whose films ran to full houses for months on end in non-Hindi speaking areas.
He had substance as well as charisma. The innocence and freshness we can see in his performances, that vulnerable, lost look-all created a persona that gave joy to hearts and romance that made hearts skip a beat. 

Rajesh Khanna (29 December 1942 – 18 July 2012) made his debut in 1966 with Aakhri Khat. During his career, he appeared in more than 168 feature films. It was the 1969 film Aradhana,  he rose to "instant national fame" and film critics referred to him as the first superstar of India. In 1971, he acted in Haathi Mere Saathi, which became that year's highest-grossing film and the biggest grosser ever till then. He had all the films hits except Badnam Farishte in 1971 that was the first film flopped at the box office since his consecutive 17 hits from 1969.
.During the peak of his career 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 blood.
Music remained one of the biggest attractions of all Rajesh Khanna films throughout his career. His films were always known for the music with chartbuster soundtracks. The reason for this was that Khanna used to personally sit in music sessions with music directors such as Kalyanji Anandji, R. D. Burman, Shankar Jaikishen, Lakshmikant Pyarelal, S.D. Burman, Bappi Lahiri and select tunes for duets and solo songs in his films. He used to be personally present for the recording of the solo songs to be picturised on him.
Rajesh Khanna was indeed a Superstar, but we’re sure he wouldn’t have been the same without Kishore Kumar. Kishore Kumar who usually sang for Dev Anand and for himself in the films took the permission from Dev Anand to sing for Rajesh Khanna in Aradhana songs. It was the music of Aradhana that created two sensations in Bollywood one was Rajesh Khanna and the other was Kishore Kumar.

'Rajesh Khanna once in an interview said  "Kishore Kumar was my soul and I was his body,"  Along with RD Burman, Kishore Kumar and Rajesh Khanna churned out one hit after the other. ‘Kati Patang’ released in 1970 was this trio’s first film together. Songs like ‘Yeh Shaam Mastani’ and ‘Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai’ hit the bull’s eye. Kishore Kumar's songs can be called a key reason of many Rajesh Khanna’s films. 'Aap Ki Kasam', 'Amar Prem', 'Mere Jeevan Saathi', the list of their successful films together is endless. Listen to the best songs of the duo here

He needed police protection when he was in public. Fans kissed his car, which would be covered with lipstick marks, and lined the road, cheering and chanting his name.
 The hysteria he generated was unlike anything seen before and after. As hit followed hit, and women all over the country swooned over him, Rajesh Khanna admitted feeling “next to god”He was the Box Office Badshah at one point of time.He had 15 consecutive super hits between 1969 to 1971, which is still an unbroken record in Indian film history.His greatest acting glory could be marked in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Anand”, in which Rajesh Khanna enacts the role of a cancer-patient who knows that his days are being numbered.
He shared a close relationship with R.D. Burman and Kishore Kumar. The trio of Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar and R.D.

Rajesh KhannaThe Hysteria he whipped up during his heyday.


 Born as Jatin Khanna on 29th Dec 1942, was India's first superstar, a heart-throb who had women trying to commit suicide when he tied the knot with Dimple Kapadia in 1973.The nation sat up and took notice of this unknown actor with a charming smile and a twinkle in his eye.

His smile in his heydays made millions of his female fans' hearts skip a beat. There are various stories of his besotted female fans marrying themselves to his photographs. Such was his craze for this Amar Prem lover boy that his fans wrote letters to him in their blood.During the peak of his career 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.Rajesh Khanna was God, there has never been such hysteria.

He made his film debut in the 1966 film Aakhri Khat, directed by Chetan Anand, followed by Raaz, directed by Ravindra Dave, both of which were a part of his predetermined prize for winning the All-India United Producers’ Talent Competition. G.P. Sippy and Nasir Hussain were the first to sign Rajesh Khanna after he won the contest.
From  Aradhana(1969) he rose to "instant national fame" and film critics referred to him as the first superstar of India. He starred in 15 consecutive solo hit films from 1969 to 1971, still an unbroken record.
Sharmila Tagore  in an interview to The Indian Express said  that "women came out in droves to see Kaka. They would stand in queues outside the studios to catch a glimpse, they would marry his photographs, they would pull at his clothes. Delhi girls were crazier for him than Mumbai girls. He needed police protection when he was in public. I have never seen anything like this before or since.
During the filming of Amar Prem there was a scene that needed to be shot at Howrah Bridge with a boat carrying Khanna and Sharmila under the bridge. The authorities ruled this scene out as they realised that if the public found out that the star would be there, it may create problems on the bridge and that it might collapse due to the amount of people trying to get a glimpse of their favorite actor.
Several songs sung by Kishore Kumar in the 1970s were based on Rajesh Khanna. During the filming of the song 'Mere Sapnon Ki Rani' in Aradhana, Sharmila Tagore was shooting for a Satyajit Ray film and director Shakti Samanta had to shoot their scenes separately and then join the scenes together. In the 1970s, his chemistry with Sharmila TagoreMumtazAsha ParekhZeenat AmanTanuja and Hema Malini were also popular with audiences.

He died on 18 July 2012, at his bungalow, Aashirwad, in Mumbai.His funeral was attended by nearly 9 lakh people and his fans had come from places like Surat, Ahmedabad, California, Singapore and from other foreign countries.Police had to resort to lathi-charge to control the crowd of fans who had gathered for the procession from Khanna's Bandra house to the crematorium.
 His name will be written in golden words." Amitabh Bachchan was quoted as saying: "The word 'superstar' was invented for him, and for me it shall ever remain his, and no others .. !! His generation and the generations that follow, shall never be able to describe, or understand his phenomena .. !!"

10 unsuccessful Love Stories of Bollywood Stars


Time and again, we hear about the love affairs among Bollywood stars. While some go on to tie the knot, many end up with broken hearts.We have seen our favorite stars fall in love (sometimes outside their marriage), Unfortunately they did not end up marrying each other.Starting from the famous Trio of Golden Era of Bollywood to the recent Hritik and Kangana Breakup.These Love affairs and gossips rarely die, especially in Bollywood at least.
Here are 10 such Tragic Love Stories of our Bollywood stars, witnessed over the years, that ended on a sad note.
.

Dev Anand and Suraiya-  The First &  Great love story of Bollywood was Dev Suraiya;s Love story .Suraiya  was already a superstar when Dev entered the industry. Suraiya traveled in American sedans. Her entourage reflected a regal aura. It included several servants and members of her family. Dev was fascinated by Suraiya. He would keep complimenting her. Later, the admiration grew mutual. Suraiya, too, showered praises on Dev. The two did seven films together — Vidya (1948), Jeet (1949), Shair (1949), Afsar(1950), Nili (1950), Do Sitare (1951) and Sanam (1951). Till their first three films no one suspected a romance between them. However, after 1951, Suraiya’s orthodox family members started dictating her life. It was during the shooting of Afsar that their romance became public and the opposition to their relationship became much more intense.According to Dev, their romance was at its zenith when they were paired in lead role for Afsar (1950). The music for this film was composed by S.D. Burman. The soulful "Man-mor hua matwala, yeh kisne jadoo dala, re yeh kisne jadoo dala" is among Suraiya’s best. While shooting for the movie, their affair became a hot topic for the Bombay tabloids.The villain of their Love Story was Suraiya's Grandmother.She used to visit studio during the shooting, once she disrupted the shooting of a love sequence.She went to the extent of not allowing them to shoot even innocent love scenes like kissing on the eyelashes.
Song from Vidya 1948

Whenever Dev came to visit Suraiya at her apartment, he found his detractors already sitting in the drawing room. For Dev, this torture was becoming unbearable. Suraiya was so much hurt by her family’s uncalled for interference and stubbornness that her acting and singing career started taking a nosedive from 1951 onward. It was the religion that was coming in between their story. Suraiya’s grandmother Badshah Begum threatened to end her life if Suraiya tied the knot with Dev Anand, who belonged to a different faith. Many people say the old lady had a covert reason for opposing Suraiya and Dev Anand’s marriage, the fact that Suraiya was the highest earning member of the large family. The relationship could not culminate into a wedlock, and Suraiya and Anand worked for one last time with the film Do Sitare in 1951. It is said after the completion of the film, the two met at Suriaya’s apartment, in presence of Anand’s elder brother Chetan Anand one last time. The doleful lovers sobbed throughout their last conversation, and later Suraiya threw Anand’s proposal ring into the sea. It was a sad end of a sweet love story, and needless to say the pair was shattered. The sweet dream of Suraiya and Dev Anand’s marriage was sent to it’s end.Dev Anand moved on after this but Suraiya remained Unmarried till death.




Madhubala And Dilip Kumar-Dilip Kumar and Madhubala worked in 4 films,the first movie they did together was Tarana in 1951.Madhubala, who was to appear in Jwar Bhata, in which Dilip Kumar was playing the lead role. She was unable to work in the movie but this was the moment the youngster first set eyes on Dilip Kumar.

Madhubala and Dilip Kumar met seven years later on the sets of Tarana when she was eighteen years old. During the shooting she sent her hairdresser with a note written in Urdu together with a red rose asking him to accept it if he loved her, which intrigued and amused Dilip Kumar and naturally he accepted the rose.Their next film was Sangdil(1952)  During this time Madhubala had an intimate relationship with Dilip. In fact it was widely believed that the stunning pair would eventually get married by this time the two were involved in an intimate relationship. The early fifties were Madhubala's best years. She was rapturously and ecstatically in love and exuded happiness..Dilip Kumar in his Biography said "She, as I said earlier, was very sprightly and vivacious and, as such, she could draw me out of my shyness and reticence effortlessly. She filled a void that was crying out to be filled - not by an intellectually sharp woman but a spirited woman whose liveliness and charm were the ideal panacea for the wound that was taking its own time to heal".


When Mughal e Azam started,they were in love but during the making their affair broke down,as we all know that the film took 10 years to complete.The reason of their break up was Madhubala's father.
 Ataullah Khan who didn't want Madhubala to marry Dilip Kumar.In his Biography recently released Dilip Kumar wrote that the reason of their break up was Madhubala's father who actually wanted to make a film with him but Dilip refused.This hurt his ego so he made a point how Madhubala marry Dilip Kumar. Madhubala was very obedient daughter couldn't go against the wish of her father.The couple though did carry on their affair in this manner for a few years. The stress and inability to have a proper relationship took their toll and finally in 1957 they finally broke up. They never paired together after their break up, in fact both were in Naya Daur but due to her father  Madhubala opted out from that film.Ataullah sued, and BR Chopra counter sued. Eventually the whole fiasco was dragged into court. At some point in the trial the personal relationship between Dilip Kumar and Madhubala was put down as evidence, and their whole affair was put under the spotlight. 




Raj Kapoor and Nargis-Raj Kapoor was the original showman of Bollywood and Nargis Dutt was the beautiful talented actress who had carved a niche for herself in Bollywood. The romance between the two was meant to be. They were named as first couple of Bollywood.Raj Kapoor, with whom Nargis worked in as many as 16 films, six of which were RK banner productions, was undoubtedly the first love of her life. She was only 19 when Raj Kapoor came to her life.If it hadn't been Raj, it would have been someone else; he just happened to be her first boyfriend.
Song from Chori Chori

Raj Kapoor and Nargis met for the first time during the making of the film Andaz in the year 1949. It is said that Kapoor fell for Nargis the moment he saw her, and that marked the beginning of a partnership that spanned 16 films. Nargis became a common fixture in almost all of Kapoor’s films in the 1950s, since she was equally smitten by Kapoor and thus would give a nod right away to any of his films.Raj Kapoor was already married that time,she did not mind marrying him and playing second fiddle in his life. She even consulted several leading legal experts of that era to find some means to tie the knot to a married man. Raj Kapoor never wanted to marry her being already father of three children that time.By the mid-1950s, Kapoor had made this point to Nargis, and the film Chori Chori in 1956 was the last one they did together. Nargis is said to have slipped into depression after this revelation but soon got out when she fell in love with Sunil Dutt during the making of Mother India. with whom she tied the knot in 1958. It is said that Raj Kapoor was so dejected on hearing the news of Sunil and Nargis’ marriage that he locked himself in his room, and cried for hours together.



Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman-Guru Dutt was a successful director, producer and actor, he introduced Waheeda Rehman to bollywood through C.I.D released in 1956.Guru Dutt was already married to singer Geeta Roy when he fell in love for Waheeda Rehman.It was during the making of Pyaasa Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman came together.Different versions of the love affair suggest that it was Waheeda who initiated marriage proposals to Dutt, or that Geeta’s suspicious nature that made Dutt confide in Waheeda.Both of them worked together in 6 films.Some say that Kagaz Ke Phool (1959) was on the real life of both the actors.The last film they did together was Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam(1962).

Song from Chaudhavi Ka Chand 1960

There is a book"Memories Of Guru Dutt by Abrar Alvi which  tells the inside story behind the Guru Dutt-Waheeda Rehman romance as it is. One really feels sorry for the legendary actress on realizing how callow she was in understanding the crooked ways of Bollywood. Guru was indeed torn between the love for his wife and the other woman. However, he couldn’t  take a stand and ended up dropping Waheeda Rehman from his life. Abrar claims that Waheeda considered him her elder brother and describes the events that led to the ‘nikah’ of Guru Dutt and Waheeda that never happened. We come to know that Waheeda had a brother-in-law Rauf who announced that Guru Dutt was converting to Islam to marry her. Eventually, Guru Dutt chickened out at the last moment without realizing that his marriage with Geeta Dutt was long over. In the end, it seems that he caused Waheeda such a grievous hurt from which only work and more work could provide solace to the talented actress-cum-dancer. Clearly, ditching Waheeda.
 Geeta Dutt left Guru Dutt in despair, which drove him towards complete isolation. Things worsened so much that both Guru and Geeta took to heavy drinking, and finally Guru Dutt died in 1964.




Rajesh Khanna and Anju Mahendru- This love story started well before Rajesh Khanna became super star.Anju Mahendru was the first love of India's first superstar Rajesh Khanna. Both were struggling to find a foothold in the industry when they met each other some time in the 60's. Anju was an aspiring model and actor while Rajesh Khanna was selected by the United  Film Producer's Association as a hero. In the early days of their relationship, Anju supported his dreams like a devoted girlfriend. Rajesh too cared for her and reportedly lavished his affection and earnings upon her. Once the actor became super successful he charmed and convinced Anju into putting aside her career for him. The madly-in-love starlet obliged and soon became Rajesh Khanna's official girlfriend and the two of them shared a live-in relationship for close to seven years. Rajesh Khanna became the heart-throb of millions after the release of Aradhana in 1969.Even after that their relationship continued but  cracks started appearing in their relationship.Their clashing values and opinions led to many altercations. In one of her interviews, Anju stated, "He is a very orthodox man, yet somehow, is always attracted to ultra-modern girls. Confusion was a part of our relationship. If I wore a skirt, he'd snap, why don't you wear a sari? If I wore a sari, he'd say, why are you trying to project a Bhartiya nari look?" And due to many such squabbles and arguments, the couple ended their relationship.
It is said that to take revenge on Anju, Rajesh Khanna completely ruined her career. Reportedly, the whole film industry blamed the actor for the break up and supported Anju. This made the actor furious and he blamed Anju and her friends for all the negative publicity.
There was a story that when Rajesh Khanna married Dimple Kapadia, he deliberately diverted his baraat's (marriage procession) route to pass in front of Anju's house, before heading to the marriage venue.Somewhere it was written that On screen, Rajesh Khanna was the perfect lover. In real life, he did not stand by the woman he committed to (Dimple Kapadia), and did not commit to the women who stood by him (Anju Mahendru) 






Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha-Amitabh and Rekha's love story is one of the most talked about affairs of Bollywood even till date. Yet, this much-talked about love story always remained a mystery as both the actors never accepted their relationship in public. Their love story began on the sets of film Do Anjaane (1976), when Amitabh was a married manDuring the initial days of their secret relationship, the couple used to meet in a bungalow that belonged to Rekha's friend. Nobody knew about this affair between already married Amitabh and Rekha. Everything was a smooth sail until an incident happenedTheir affair came in the limelight during the shooting of  Ganga Ki Saugandh (1978) when Amitabh Bachchan reportedly lost his temper on a co-actor who was misbehaving with Rekha.Their relationship was  at its peak before the shooting of Silsila.In fact during the shooting they were not talking to each other.

Song from Mukkadar Ka Sikandar

Rekha wanted to marry Amitabh and did not want to settle down with the tag of the 'other woman' in Amitabh's life. She realised she has no future in this relationship as Amitabh was not in any mood to leave his wife Jaya for Rekha. With this, their passionate love story came to an end, both on and off screen.Silsila’ was the last film in this couple starred together.




Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai-After becoming Miss World, Aishwarya entered Bollywood but didn't get success, this was the time when Salman was in love with Pakistani beauty Somi Ali after his break-up with Sangeeta Bijlani.The Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan love story started in the year 1999, when Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan were filming the movie Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

I am not hounding her. It's not a teenage obsession that I feel for her — it's pure love. She's such a traditional Hindustani girl at the bottom of her heart. The fact that she respects her parents so much makes me admire her more,” Salman was quoted saying. Aishwarya’s parents never approved of the relationship right from the beginning. However Ash called off the relationship because Salman used to cheat on her. Salman was unable to come to terms with the breakup initially; he went wild and created a ruckus during the shooting of Chalte Chalte. They broke up in 2002 and not have been able to burry hatchet till date.Aishwarya and Salman both moved forward in their lives.



Karisma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan -Their love story started long before Abhishek entered in Film industry. Karishma was already a star when their love story started.It was apparently in 1997 during Shweta Bachchan’s wedding, that Karishma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan got serious about each other.Abhishek Bachchan made his debut in 2000 with Refugee while Karishma in 1991. On October 11, 2002, at Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday party, their engagement was announced.But their engagement was called off after a few months. This ended their relationship of a few years and no reason were given of the break-up.



Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor-Bebo was the one who was always crazy about Shahid Kapoor and is said to have initiated the first move. It was in  2004 when their roaring affair grabbed headlines and made it to all gossip columns. Back then, both of them were very open about their relationship.One of their MMS went viral which confirmed their relationship.

Song from Jab We Met 2007

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut-This love story broke before it bloom.It all started in 2011 and 2012 when Kangana was invited for the birthday party of Hritik's sister.After that both started dating together.Hritik was married then but some bitterness had come in the husband and wife by that time.Soon the couple’s divorce was publically announced. While there is no clarity whether the Krrish 3 co-stars’ romance led to Hrithik’s divorce,the Bang Bang star and Kangana were apparently back together after the announcement. Reports say that Hrithik even asked Kangana to marry him.They were together till the end of 2014 but something went wrong again. It is the sad end of the affair which is feeding a dirty legal mess.
