Yesteryear actor Raaj Kumar, known for his signature ‘Jaani’ on screen, was a huge star in the 1960s and continued to work until the 90s in films like Saudagar and Tirangaa. Friday marks Raaj Kumar’s 95th birth anniversary and on the occasion, we stumbled across an old interview of his frequent collaborator, director Mehul Kumar.
But his statement disturbed Mehul so he asked him about the same post-pack-up. The Pakeezah star shared with Mehul, “He said ‘Jaani, tumko maloom nahi, shamshaan yatra ko tamasha bana dete hain film line mein. People will come dressed up in white clothes, then the press would also come in. Instead of honoring the person who has passed away, it becomes a tamasha. My funeral is for my family. No one apart from my family will attend it.'”
When the Heer Raanjha star passed away in 1996, Mehul was reminded of his words as they felt almost prophetic. Mehul recalled that he was shooting with Amitabh Bachchan,cash roulette online and Dimple Kapadia for Mrityudaata in Mehboob Studios when they got a call that Raaj Kumar has passed away. He got a call from Raaj Kumar’s son Puru Raaj Kumar and it was only after the family had performed the final rites. “That’s when I was reminded of the day when he told me that there will be no film people at my funeral,” he recalled.lotto results
