Remembering the superstar on his first death anniversary is our B-town's Khiladi Akshay Kumar, who paid his tribute on his social networking site thus - "It's been a year today, yet the loss is still so fresh. I don't quite think any of us have accepted my Father in law's devastating departure... To Mr. Rajesh Khanna, they make very few like you, you are a Father, a Legend & a very treasured man, who will never be forgotten. You are in our hearts today & always. Love & eternal prayers, from your entire family."
