Kaka was jealous of Big B?

It is said rarely has India seen the kind of fan following that Rajesh Khanna in his prime years enjoyed. Easily called the biggest of superstars, Khanna managed to evoke extreme reactions from his loyal fans. When he suddenly got married to Dimple Kapadia, apparently some of his female followers had attempted suicide. Such was the power of Rajesh Khanna's charm. Amitabh Bachchan entered the industry when Khanna was already an established superstar. Apparently when Bachchan started getting accolades for his performances, Khanna's insecurities started growing. He had kind of sensed that this man might just take his place. Even though earlier Khanna had agreed to work with Bachchan, which resulted in iconic movies like Anand and Namak Haram, later he refused to share screen space with him. It is said that when his perpetual tardiness was compared to Bachchan's punctuality, Khanna had retorted with, 'I am not a clerk. I am an artiste. Clerks are punctual.' Later, Khanna's fears started coming true when he was slowly replaced by Amitabh Bachchan, the angry young man.
