Rajesh Khanna Tribute Night – Closing Gala
The final day of London Asian Film Festival showcased a screening of Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain, and a tribute to the legendary late Bollywood actor Rajesh Khanna.
To do the honors Rajesh Khanna’s sister shared beautiful memories of him with her while growing up and how he was personally a very genuine and large hearted person. There was also a treat for true Rajesh Khanna fans or “Kaka” as they fondly call him, a voice recording of his speech which he recorded personally that was also played on his funeral in Mumbai when he died on 18 July 2012.
The night became more glorious, when magnificent British Asian singers Navin Kundra and Ambika Jois entertained the audience with their splendid singing performances of Rajesh Khanna’s best hits like “Gulabi Ankhen”, “Mere Sapno Ki Rani”, “Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai”, and many more of his dazzling songs.
It was one joyful night, where Kakas fans were dancing to his tunes and hooting for him all the way in his remembrance.
