Super Star Rajesh Khanna's Birthday on 29th December, 2008
Description: On his sixty six birthday on 29th Dec, 2008, I may highlight some inner capabilities of the SUPER STAR OF INDIA as a most refined actor, rather, an actor par excellence, which I have experienced for the last 4 decades through his outstanding performances. These are in addition to his classic facial expressions which emerge effortlessly on his face & the style & arrogance brought by him on the silver screen. The rigorous use of his voice to communicate a character’s lines & express emotion, which he achieved through attention to diction & projection through correct breathing & articulation. It has also achieved by him through the tone & emphasis that an real actor puts on words. Characterization/Physicalisation of a role in order to create a believable character for the audience & to use the acting space appropriately & correctly. Use of gesture to complement the voice, interact with other actors & to bring emphasis to the words in a play, as well as having symbolic meaning.
