The pic dates back to the time when Rajesh Khanna won the elections in the 90s. The veteran actor was born in Amritsar, Punjab on December 29, 1942. He made his entry to the world of films in 1965, when he started shooting for Raaz and starred in 180 films, including 163 feature films and 17 short films. By 2011, he was the only actor to hold a record for maximum number of films as a solo lead hero and the least number of multi star cast films in Hindi cinema. His first tryst with success as an actor was ‘Akhri Khat’, followed by ‘Raaz’ and ‘Aurat’. He achieved super stardom status with Shakti Samantha’s ‘Aradhana’ in 1969. He also holds the world record for having 17 successive super-hits in 3 years from 1969-71 which included 15 consecutive solo super-hit films.
