Our ‘Anand’ is no more

July 18, 2012

Dear readers:

I am sure by now most of you know about the death at 69 years of age of Rajesh Khanna — the greatest Superstar ever to rule Bollywood. There was never one before him or after him and inarguably so, I can say.

May Kaka, as he was known to most of the Hindi film industry, RIP.
