Andaz is a 1971 Hindi romantic movie starring Shammi Kapoor, Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The film was directed by Ramesh Sippy.Andaz was one of the last movies for which the great music directors duo, Shankar- Jaikishan composed music together. Jaikishan died of cirrhosis of the liver on 12 September 1971 at the young age of 42.

Coincidentally, one of the most popular songs from this film - Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana, Yahaan Kal Kya Ho Kisne Jaana ( Life is a beautiful journey, One never knows what's going to happen tomorrow) turned out to be the last song that Jaikishan recorded before his untimely death.

Rajesh Khanna (born: Jatin Khanna 29 December 1942 -- 18 July 2012, Amritsar, Punjab, India) is an Indian Bollywood . He married Dimple Kapadia, a Gujarati, in 1973 and has two daughters from the marriage. Khanna and Dimple Kapadia separated in 1984, as his schedule kept him away much of the time and she became interested in pursuing an acting career.

After the separation, he was romantically involved with Tina Munim for a period of time. Following a few years of separation, the relationship between Kapadia and Khanna blossomed once again, and remained that of close friends. He made his film debut in the 1966 film Aakhri khat, followed by Raaz opposite heroine Babita, but neither was a major success. He was noticed for his performance in his next film Baharon Ke Sapne which was followed by box office successes like Aurat (1967), Khamoshi, and Aradhana (1969). Established as a popular protagonist, he appeared in many romantic, melodramatic and social films, often appearing with the same actresses - such as Sharmila Tagore, Mumtaz, Hema Malini and Asha Parekh.

During the peak of his career he would be mobbed during public appearances. Fans kissed his car, which would be covered with lipstick marks, and lined the road, cheering and chanting his name. Female fans sent him letters written in their own blood.

Several songs sung by Kishore Kumar in the 1970s were based on Rajesh Khanna.during the filming of the song 'mere sapnon ki rani' aradhana sharmila tagore was shooting for a satya jit rai film and the director shakti samanta had to shoot their scenes separately and then join the scenes together. needless to say this was the the most popular song of its generation and went on to become the biggest attraction of the movie aradhana.

Rajesh Khanna had 15 consecutive hits between 1969 to 1972, which is still an unbreakable record in Indian film. His success began to diminish in terms of box office results of his films in the mid 1970s (1976-78) to some extent owing to various factors, including internal politics against him in film industry, his sudden marriage with Dimple Kapadia, emergence of action oriented masala films and young generation heros like Rishi Kapoor, the introduction of video (VCR) in India and its resulting decrease in number of family audiences at Cinema halls.Post-1976,

Khanna had a string of box office flops, including Aaina and Mehbooba. Media reports in the late seventies suggested that success had perhaps caused Khanna to be complacent, often turning up late for shoots and throwing tantrums, as well as having a whole entourage of sycophants accompany him for his shoots. This behaviour coupled with the changing trend from romantic and social movies to action oriented multi-star films in the late-1970s and early-1980s caused the decline of Khanna's career in terms of box office ratings to some extent. However, he continued basically in solo hero social sober household meaningful films during multistar masala films' era.

Khanna met with more success in challenging roles with critically acclaimed box office hits such as ,Amardeep,Thodi Si Bewafai, Dard, 'Dhanwaan' 'Avtaar' 'Agar Tum Na Hote, Souten,Red Rose etc. (1979 onwards to end of 80s). He also performed in few multistar films with central characters such as Kudrat, Rajpoot, Dharam Aur Kanoon, and Ashanti. He shared a very close relationship with R.D.Burman and Kishore Kumar. The trio were very close friends and have worked together in more than thirty films. Several actors who were part of the cast of most of his films included Sujith Kumar, Prem Chopra, Madan Puri, Asrani, Bindu, Vijay Arora and A K Hangal, who remained part of his "team" until the late eighties.

From the early nineties onwards he stopped acting and served as M.P. of New Delhi Constituency from 1991 to 1996. During that period, he returned to acting, appearing in Khudai (1994). He made a come back as a NRI in Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999), and Kyaa Dil Ne Kahaa (2002).

He died on 18 July 2012, at his bungalow in Mumbai due to cancer
