“It was the X-ray eyes of the imaginative Gulzar which spotted my talent and utilised them to the hilt in ‘Achanak’ and ‘Mere Apne’, my best films as a lead actor. I still consider ‘Koi Hota Jis Ko Apna’ from ‘Mere Apne’ the best song I ever lipped,” Mr. Khanna told The Hindu in 2011.
His multi-starrers such as Parvarish, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Achanak and the Atma Ram’s Aarop helped him hold his own against stars such as Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachhan.
