    FOREWORD BY SHARMILA TAGORE The first-ever biography of the enigmatic Rajesh Khanna, the original 'superstar' If ever a life was meant to be a book, few could stake a stronger claim. Like a shooting star doomed to darkness after a glorious run, Rajesh Khanna spent the better half of his career in the shadow of his own stardom. Yet, forty years after his last monstrous hit, Khanna continues to be the yardstick by which every single Bollywood star is measured. At a time when film stars were truly larger than life, Khanna was even more: the one for whom the term 'superstar' was coined. Dark Star looks at the phenomenon of an actor who redefined the 'film star'. Gautam Chintamani's engaging narrative tries to make sense of what it was that made Rajesh Khanna and what accounted for his extraordinary fall. A singular account of a wondrous life.

    Superstars are not cliched - Dark Star is a shining example

    Rajesh Khanna is considered to be a pioneer - Bollywood's first superstar. His fame and adulation gave the industry a new word - Superstar. In the late sixties or early seventies, the word Superstar was as alien as the Rs 100 crore club was a few years ago. Interestingly, a whole generation grew up without experiencing the real super stardom of Rajesh Khanna.

    Post his death, Rajesh Khanna was back in the news in a big way. The years preceding his death, he was virtually absent from the media...

    A good read

    Took this book for a read during my flight. A nice piece for people who like dramatics and would like to know the details of the Mr Khanna's life and what actually happens on ground, of the famous films made.

    It also inspires showing that even this big star had his share of struggles and destiny worked in a way to get him on the progressive ladder, though there was no question about the talent he had.

    Been across first few chapters by now, so far it is interesting, inspiring and real.

    A Heart Rendering Tale

    An excellent insight into the dark side of the brightest star. Its really heartbreaking to read how an actor Rajesh Khanna was consumed by a star Rajesh Khanna. The author Chintamani deserves all applauds for his keen research on the erstwhile star.
    The book provides a comprehensive review of most of the Khanna starer movies. Yet one significant but forgotten Dharm aur Kanoon found no mention.
    All in all a treat for all Khanna fans
