Super star Rajesh Khanna birthday today, Sportsanasha shares ex India great cricketer GR Vishwanath and Rajesh Khanna’s interesting story.
“After 1975 tour of West Indies Tiger Pataudi ex India captain , asked me if I can come with him to Ooty for two three days” Master batsman GR Vishwanath was speaking to Sportsanasha in an interview.
“I said yes and told my parents that I will come back in 2 days, Rajesh Khanna was there in Ooty shooting for a film also, Sharmila Tagore was also there for another shooting ” Vishy was talking about his favourite actor Rajesh Khanna (Kaka) as they called him.
“We were supposed to come back in two three days, as per earlier plan but there were income tax raids on film stars in Mumbai, so Rajesh thought, why to go unnecessary ‘LAFDA'(problem), we stayed on in Ooty for about 15 days and enjoyed the beauty of Ooty ” Vishy was so much close to the Superstar Rajesh Khanna and Great MAK Pataudi. Unfortunately many young kids know him only as Saif Ali Khan’s father.
“Rajesh loved cricket a lot” Vishy quipped when we asked whether Rajesh Khanna followed the game and Indian matches.
” As there were no mobiles, I had to send telegram to inform my parents at Banglore” Vishy was a young obedient sweet boy that time.
Now a days Vishy the legend, hardly speaks in public. He is not publicity crazy man.But in his private life he is quite popular with cricketers and film stars.
The detailed interview with Vishy by www.Sportsanasha.com will be aired soon.
