A FilmFare Special Award as well as FilmFare Lifetime Achievement Award has been awarded to him apart from the four-time BFJA Awards for Best Actor and being selected as Lok Sabha member of the Indian National Congress. He too, was the highest paid actor in 1970-87 and later on shared the same tag with Amitabh Bachchan. Upon his death in 2012, India’s third highest civilian honour, Padma Bhushan has been awarded to him posthumously. A bronze statue has been unveiled and a postage stamp has been released to honor him.
Kapil Srivastava wanted to stir the interest and awareness of GM students to the brilliant form of Bollywood music via Rajesh Khanna songs on Guitar. It was to reflect the star’s musical heritage and his unmatched charisma to the evergreen music of RD Burman and Kishore Kumar. It became an exalted dedication when other professional artists volunteered to grace the performance that lasted for an hour at India’s leading Guitar School, Guitarmonk in its East Delhi branch. Indeed, the Tribute to Rajesh Khanna warrant the fact that there will only be one superstar and Rajesh Khanna proved it in his lifetime, and that even beyond his death, India will always honor his significance.
