I think the ’70s was his time and I loved all Rajesh Khanna films. I also loved the songs in his films. The combination of Rajesh Khanna, R D Barman, and Kishore Kumar was just fabulous. I think nobody can forget all their lovely songs. As a child, I loved his films Kati Patang, Aradhan and the film I liked the most is Kudrat, it also starred Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, and Raj Kumar. It was a lovely film, very well made and had amazing songs. The Rajesh Khanna song that I often listen to is Aate Jaate Khubsurat Awara Sadko. Even my upcoming show has the song because it goes with the theme.

My favorite film of his is Safar, as the story really touched me. And, my favorite Rajesh Khanna song would be  “Yeh Shaam Mastani Madhosh kiye jaaye”  from his film, Kati Patang.

I’m a big Rajesh Khanna fan. I miss him a lot. I cried a lot the day he died. Anand is my most favorite Rajesh Khanna movie. And the song closest to my heart is Yeh Kya Hua, Kaise Hua from Amar Prem.

My most favorite movie of Rajesh Kanna is Amar Prem. It’s a mature love story, much ahead of its time. Set in the Backdrop of Bengal, he looked dashing in Bengali dhoti-kurta and his character was so wonderful. My most favorite song of Rajesh Khanna would be Chingari Koi Bhadke.

Aradhana would be my favorite film just because of the scale and the beautiful performance of Rajesh Khanna. And there are so many songs I don’t think any actor has such a variety of beautiful lyrics and beautiful music. That was definitely a golden Era of our Music. So there are so many Rajesh Khanna songs that one loves but I think Zindagi Ke Safar Mein Guzar Jaate is one of my favorite songs.

I have watched his films so many times but of all that I have watched, Aradhana Amar Prem, Anand, and Bawarchi are my favorite movies of his. And if you ask me my favorite songs of Rajesh Khanna, I can’t choose anyone because there are so many. But I think “Chingari koi bhadke Zindagi ke safar mein jo guzar jate hai” and “Mere Naina Sawan Bhadon”, would say are my most favorite songs.
