Rajesh Khanna at Apsara Awards with Zeenat Aman, Dilip Kumar, Asha Parekh & Shabana Azmi

The original superstar, Rajesh Khanna, was seen in all his glory at the recently held Apsara Awards 2012 in Mumbai recently. Dressed in his trademark white starched kurta-pyjama with a maroon waistcoat, Rajesh regaled the audiences with some of his legendary dialogues of the 70s and 80s hits. “Main derr se aata nahi hun lekin kya karu, der ho jaati hai. Isliye maafi ka haqdar hu, agar phir bhi kisine na maaf kiya ho toh main yahi kehna chahta hu ‘Humko maafi dedo saahib’” was the dialogue that received maximum applause from the audience. As he was being felicitated by Ramesh Sippy, President of the Guild, Rajesh found it ironic that it was Ramesh’s father, GP Sippy that gave him his first break with Andaaz, and whom he fondly referred to as his ‘ann-daata’ that set him off on his journey from being an actor to a star and ultimately a superstar.

Chevrolet Apsara Awards powered by Venus Soaps will showcase many more exciting moments with the biggest bollywood personalities, on Colors at 2:00 pm, Sunday, the 11th of March and repeat telecast at 9:00 pm, Sunday, 11th March 2012.
