Rajesh Khanna was always encouraging: Hema Malini

Passing away of the first Super star of India, Rajesh Khanna has left the country in shock. The actor was declared yesterday around noon time and it took no time for the people to realize the gem that they lost. Here is Hema Malini remembering Rajesh Khanna-

It’s very saddening to hear that Rajesh Khanna is no more. I think he was always alone. Of course we all have to go one day, but I think he went earlier.

He could have easily lived another 20 years. I had the opportunity to work with him in many films, and the audience too loved our pairing. Andaaz was our first film together. He was an encouraging co-actor. He had an aura, a huge fan following, he was truly the superstar. Though people used to feel he was a little arrogant, I think he was a wonderful person.
