Rajesh Khanna changed after ‘Aaradhana’, says Sharmila
Mumbai: Sharmila Tagore, who was one of the leading ladies whom superstar Rajesh Khanna romanced on screen, has revealed that the actor really changed after his super blockbuster Aradhana.
"He started coming late on the sets, and all that. But still, he would be there by noon and we could do some shots before lunch," she said.
The actress was cast opposite to the actor in the 1969 flick, which catapulted him into the world of adulation and limelight.
Nostalgic Tagore revealed that it had become impossible to walk from her makeup room to the sets of Aradhana. The whole area would be crammed with girls, who fell on him, literally. I`ve never seen anything like that ever again in my life. It was phenomenal," she said.
The actress, who attended a screening of ‘Aradhana’ in Mumbai, claimed that the large screen experience of the movie made her realise that her chemistry with the star did wonders.
"Kaka and I made a very successful pair. Aradhana and Amar Prem are my most popular films. Some time ago, there was a screening of Aradhana in Mumbai. I had seen the film on television but the large-screen experience made me realise how much our pairing worked," she added.
