Twinkle Khanna turns a year older today. Interestingly, the actress-turned-columnist-turned-author shares her birthday with her father, the original superstar of Bollywood late Rajesh Khanna.
The superstar or Kaka – as he was fondly called, who gave 15 consecutive hits from 1969-71, like ‘Anand’, ‘Namak Haram’, ‘Bawarchi‘ and ‘Amar Prem‘. The legendary actor still lives on in the hearts of movie-goers.
Twinkle, who celebrates her 42nd birthday today, shared a throwback picture with her dad and a very special message, “I see you, in my reflection off the back of a gleaming spoon, in a gesture my sister makes, in the arch of my son’s eyebrows-I still see you.”
Rajesh Khanna married the then-budding actress Dimple Kapadia in March 1973, months before her superhit film Bobby released. Khanna entered politics in the 80s. He was a Congress MP from New Delhi. Twinkle Khanna also accompanied her father Rajesh Khanna for election campaigns. Dimple Kapadia and Rinke too accompanied them.
Rajesh Khanna passed away on 18 July 2012.
