     1'''Rajesh Khanna, (b. 1942)'''

     4Originally Jatin Khanna. The first of the late 
     560s/early 70s Hindi superstars with a big 
     6impact on the industry, later equalled only by 
     7Bachchan. His late 60s roles were often lowbudget 
     8genre films (e.g. Yash Chopra’s thriller 
     9Ittefaq). Broke through in two popular love 
     10stories made and released simultaneously: 
     11Aradhana and Do Raaste, which shaped his 
     12film persona, later elaborated by Shakti 
     13Samanta. His image is traceable to Gulshan 
     14Nanda’s novelettes generated in the context of 
     15the industrialisation of 60s Hindi publishing 
     16pioneered by Mitra Prakashan’s best-selling 
     17journal, Manohar Kahaniyan, in Allahabad, 
     18and its numerous imitations aiming serials at 
     19less-educated readers. In the 70s, he often 
     20played a social orphan (Hathi Mere Saathi) 
     21deprived of maternal love and stricken by 
     22some existential malaise (Amar Prem) driving 
     23him to depravity (Dushman, Kati Patang) 
     24from which the heroine and foster-mother 
     25rescue him, usually by naming him as their 
     26protector. Often partnered by Sharmila 
     27Tagore or Mumtaz in his best-known films. His 
     28image of the innocent in a big bad world 
     29extended also to famous roles as a man who 
     30laughs to cover up some internal tragedy 
     31(Anand, Andaz). This approach influenced 
     32film-makers like Yash Chopra, but it was 
     33quickly overtaken in the mid-70s by Bachchan, 
     34making Khanna’s style an anachronism in the 
     3580s. Stood for election as a Congress (I) 
     36candidate in Delhi, almost defeating the rightwing 
     37BJP leader, L.K. Advani. In a by-election 
     38he defeated the film star Shatrughan Sinha 
     39(who now represented the BJP) and became an 
     40MP.
