Publisher's Summary

Foreword by Sharmila Tagore

The first-ever biography of the enigmatic Rajesh Khanna, the original "superstar".

If ever a life was meant to be a book, few could stake a stronger claim. Like a shooting star doomed to darkness after a glorious run, Rajesh Khanna spent the better half of his career in the shadow of his own stardom. Yet, 40 years after his last monstrous hit, Khanna continues to be the yardstick by which every single Bollywood star is measured. At a time when film stars were truly larger than life, Khanna was even more: the one for whom the term superstar was coined. Dark Star looks at the phenomenon of an actor who redefined the "film star". Gautam Chintamani's engaging narrative tries to make sense of what it was that made Rajesh Khanna and what accounted for his extraordinary fall. A singular account of a wondrous life.
