Time to ‘pack up’ Khanna’s last words: Big B

‘Time ho gaya hai, pack up’. Those were Rajesh Khanna’s last words, says Amitabh Bachchan in his blog.

Amitabh wrote that a close functionary told him Rajesh’s last words in a choked voice Wednesday when he gone to condole the death of India’s first superstar at his home Ashirwad.Amitabh recalled his long experience with Rajesh whom he first saw as the winner of the Filmfare-Madhuri Talent Contest. It was the same contest for which Amitabh also applied the following year but was rejected.

‘His film Aradhana was my next meeting with him, at the Rivoli Theatre in Connaught Place, which my mother took me to see. The packed audience and their reactions to this young handsome man was impermeable,’ wrote Amitabh.

‘But one look at Rajesh Khanna made me realise that with people like him around, there would be little chance of opportunity for me, in this new profession!’ Amitabh confessed.
