Zee Classic Raises a toast to Bollywood’s original ‘SRK: Superstar Rajesh Khanna’

MUMBAI: It was said that when he walked on dusty roads, women used to treat the dirt as their ‘Mang Ka Sindoor’. If his car was even in sight, it used to be entirely covered with lipstick marks. Female fans went into a frenzy of depression when they heard about his marriage. No one in the Indian film industry has enjoyed or even commanded the kind of stardom that Superstar Rajesh Khanna did. The original ‘King of Romance’ was the epitome of the overpowering charisma and thus to celebrate the greatness of India’s first superstar, Zee Classic has flagged off a special ‘SRK: Superstar Rajesh Khanna’ film festival commencing from Thursday 12th March till Sunday 15th March at 9:00 PM every night.

 

The festival will begin with the Rajesh Khanna and Sridevi starrer romantic-comedy Masterji on 12th March. A box office hit Masterji is about a precocious village belle, Radha (Sridevi) trying her best to seduce the widowed school-master.

Premiering for the first time on Zee Classic – Dard, a crime thriller co-starring Hema Malini is slated to air on 13th March. Incidentally, the film marked his ninth appearance in a double role. Blended with melodious music by Laxmikant Pyarelal, Mehboob Ki Mehandi a runaway hit also starring Leena Chandravarkar will be telecasted on 14th March. The festival will conclude with super hit romantic-comedy Mere Jeevan Saathi that hosted eternal romantic numbers like “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” or  “Aao Na Gale Lagao Na” will be showcased on Zee Classic for the first time on 15th March.
