Mumbai, Dec 31 (MNN) Actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi has acquired the rights to Gautam Chintamani’s bestseller, ‘Dark Star: The Loneliness of Being Rajesh Khanna’, and will soon adapt it into a film.

On Rajesh Khanna’s 79th birth anniversary, Nikhil Dwivedi announced a biopic on the yesteryear’s superstar.

Nikhil took to the social media and shared a picture of the superstar with his famous quote and wrote: “An Icon. A Megastar. Always Regal yet Melancholic. They don’t make em’ like you anymore …”

It is reported that choreographer turned director Farah Khan has been approached to helm the project.

Rajesh Khanna, with his impeccable journey in the film industry, had delivered 17 successive superhits from 1969-71, which included 15 consecutive solo superhit films.

Such was the craze about him that female fans reportedly wrote letters in blood to him, married his photographs and went into mourning when he tied the knot with Dimple Kapadia in March 1973.

Rajesh Khanna passed away in 2012 due to cancer. He was posthumously awarded India’s third highest civilian honour Padma Bhushan in 2013 for his work in the entertainment industry.
