“I attended Rajesh Khanna’s funeral as I was assigned to make a documentary. I was amazed to see that Indians from the US and UK had come to attend his funeral. That’s when I decided to write the book to know more about the man,” Yasser said about his first book.
The foreword of the book has been written by noted Bollywood scriptwriter Salim Khan. Congress leader Salman Khurshid launched the book here along with the author. “I had the privilege of knowing him (Khanna). I had campaigned for him when he ventured into politics. I have spent several evenings with him. I saw the effervescent Rajesh Khanna and I saw his fall. I thought there will be another spring in his life but it did not happen,” Khurshid said.
The event, which was also attended by Lesley Nicol, best known for her role in ‘East is East’, ended with a musical tribute to Khanna.
