Pakistan town says Rajesh Khanna was born there

LUDHIANA: Where was Rajesh Khanna born? Even as the departed superstar was cremated in Mumbai on Thursday, a debate rages across the border. While his fans in India believe he was born in Amritsar, his followers in Pakistan have been gathering near a house in the sleepy town of Burewala near Faisalabad, playing tributes to the departed actor at a place where they say he was born in 1942. They are even planning a remembrance and a film festival in his memory in Burewala.

Old-timers in Burewala say the actor was born there and had spent five years of his life in a two-storey house. Residents of Burewala told TOI over phone that Khanna’s house, built in 1935, is still intact.

The house, located in H-block on Delhi-Multan Road, has ‘Jatin Bhawan’ engraved in Hindi at the entrance and also has a few lines of the “Gayatri mantra”, the village folk said.

“We all love Rajesh Khanna and have seen all of his films. The news of his death has come as a shock to all of Burewala,” said Mushtaq Ahmed, 79, a resident.

“Whenever an Indian visits Burewala, we take him to the star’s house. We are so proud of him,” said Nadeem Mushtaq Ramay of Burewala.

Just round the time Khanna’s last rites began in Mumbai, Burewala residents gathered at MC Model High School to hold a condolence meeting. They said the actor had studied in this school for two years and maintained a five-minute silence in his memory. Burewala residents say Khanna’s father, Lala Hiranand Khanna, was the founder-member of this school and remained its headmaster for 16 years – between 1931 and 1947 – until he retired.

Khanna’s fans in Burewala, who gathered at the school on Thursday, said went through school records and found the actor’s name, Jatin Khanna, along with his brother’s, Joginder Lal Khanna. The school, currently closed for summer vacation, was especially opened by the headmaster on Thursday.

“More and more people are pouring in at the house and the school. We are trying to locate all his classmates. We are planning to screen two of his superhits and will hold a discussion,” said another Burewala resident Azgar Ali Javed.

Manjitinder Singh Johal, 42, a resident of Mandiani village of Ludhiana, said: “I had visited his house in April this year. It’s a sprawling house and the new owner has not made many changes to the original design. His name and the Gayatri mantra are still engraved.
