Sharmila Tagore said, “There used to be a long line of girls outside the studio where we used to work. She had an amazing craze among the girls. She had a magical smile, youthful energy and great acting skills and apart from that, she had a good voice. He used to take full advantage.”

Sharmila further explained why did she quit working with Rajesh Khanna? Talking about this, he said, “What impressed me the most about Kaka was his habit of arriving late to work. Kaka never reached for the 9 o’clock shift before 12 o’clock. That’s why I decided to work with other actors knowing that our onscreen chemistry was loved by the audience.”

Sharmila concluded, “Rajesh Khanna was a person full of contrast and complexity. I have seen him give expensive gifts to his co-stars, colleagues and friends. Sometimes he would even gift them a house, but in return. I used to have high expectations from him, due to which tension would arise in their relationship.

Sharmila and Rajesh were one of the most popular onscreen couples of Bollywood in the 60s and 70s. Both of them worked together in many superhit films like Aradhana, Safar, Amar Prem, Avishkar Tyag and Raja.
