Book Review#2: Rajesh Khanna : The Untold Story of India's First Superstar :Yaseer Usman

The other day while newspaper,i read a small part of the biography of India's First Superstar and loved the article which was the extract from the book. Curiosity got better of me and i ordered the book from the library and couldn't put it down till i finished.The book was written after his death and it captured his life very nicely.

As a actor,Rajesh Khanna's success speaks volumes about his talent.But as a human,there are many shades to this great actor,mostly defined as "unpredictable" by his peers.
The book very beautifully captures the life's and times of Rajesh Khanna..Yes,very honestly written about the humane side of the actor who had a major inferiority complex and insecurity which destructed his career and him as a person to a large extent..But i guess by and large all the superstars go through this "phase" only some stories come out and some remain buried..

It covers the good the bad the ugly facets of a human personality..Makes us believe that superstars are also Human and they too make mistakes.
