About Bollywood Actors

Bollywood has always been a male-dominated industry; nevertheless the actresses too commanded equal respect they deserved. Yet it was actors who virtually ruled bollywood as their own fiefdom with their stylized performances.

During the late ’60s and into early ’70s it was Rajesh Khanna the ever-green romantic hero who brought sweeping changes in bollywood romance with his super hit song n dance sequences in films like ‘Aradhana‘ [1969], ‘Do Raaste‘ [1970], ‘Kati Patang‘ [1971], ‘Namak Haraam‘ [1973], ‘Aap Ki Kasam‘ [1974] and so on.
