Product Description

Yasser Usman is an award-winning TV journalist and the author of the bestselling biographies Rajesh Khanna: The Untold Story of India's First Superstar and Rekha: The Untold Story. His latest book is Sanjay Dutt: The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywood's Bad Boy. He has been a recipient of the prestigious Ramnath Goenka Award for excellence in journalism, among many others.

In the 1970s, Rajesh Khanna achieved the kind of fame that no film star had ever experienced before-or has since. But then he saw it all vanish. They say superstardom destroyed him. But was it something else buried deep in his past?

In this riveting biography, award winning journalist Yasser Usman examines Rajesh Khanna's dramatic, colourful life in its entirety: from little-known facts about his childhood to the low-down on his relationships and rivalries, from his ambitious hopes to his deep-seated insecurities. What emerges is a tantalizingly written, meticulously researched chronicle of a fascinating and mercurial man-one who was both loved and feared by those closest to him. It is a story that encapsulates the glittering, seductive, cut-throat world of Bollywood at its best and its worst.

Written in a racy style, the book is a fine tribute to the phenomenon called Rajesh Khanna. A must for his fans; and the rest tooYasser Usman's biography of Rajesh Khanna, is a special book, not only in its writing . . . but also for its affectionate honestyThe book packs a punch while constructing the story of the biggest star of Hindi cinemaThe narrative is brisk, the facts substantiated by many leading journalists and actors who worked with Khanna, all of which come together to create an insight into Khanna's life, yet with plenty of mystiqueYasser Usman certainly has a knack for ensnaring the unsuspecting reader. This is a brilliantly woven narrative, a non-fiction book thoroughly researched yet so cleverly spun it doesn't rate less than a Bollywood potboilerA delightful new book . . . by Yasser Usman, brings to light the various facets of the actor's extraordinary lifeThe book is a collation of information that is part filmlore, part a cautionary tale with occasional pieces of rare triviaThis book has been carefully woven between the fame of the superstar Rajesh Khanna and the conflict between his shy, egoistic, skeptical personaAs you read this book you will smile at some places, your eyes will be moist at others . . . an experience similar to watching a Rajesh Khanna blockbuster
