In April 2012, Khanna – fondly called Kaka by fans and colleagues in the industry – was admitted to the hospital due to weakness and fatigue but was discharged in four days.

Following his recovery there was news once again that he was unwell. Kaka then ventured out of his house and waved to his fans from the balcony. He was accompanied by Akshay and Dimple.

On June 23rd, he was admitted to the hospital again for 2 weeks. Finally, last week when he complained of weakness he was taken to the hospital and was discharged on Monday afternoon (2 days back).

On Wednesday afternoon, the only superstar to have delivered 15 back-to-back hits passed away.

Rest in peace Babumoshai. The industry and millions of your fans will miss you forever.

Rejesh khanna ki death huyi hai, bohot dhuk ki baat hai. Aur is samay par Rajesh saheb ke bareme likna hai. Jo log pagal ho gaye hai, is samay par Ek the tiger bareme likh rahe hai.
Kahi aisa na hojaye Ek tha tiger flop hojaye.

I didn’t know that I will feel like this sad today while hearing on the news that he’s no more.. cried, remembered him and that we all, family members adored him and lived in his films and songs specially his film Aradhana, he touched everyone’s heart.. Rajesh Khanna was yesterday superstar who will always be remembered through his movies and songs.

May his soul rest in peace.
