Rajesh Khanna was famous for his death scenes. He was so obsessed with death sequences that he mostly used to chose the role of a hero who dies in the end.

Rumour has it that Rajesh Khanna forced the director of 1973 superhit film Namak Haraam to give him the role of Somnath Chander Singh (Somu), the character that dies in the end, which initially belonged to Amitabh Bachchan.

In Shakti Samanta's 1969 film Aradhana, Rajesh Khanna did a double role; one of these roles was of the air force officer Arun Varma who dies in the beginning.

Anand is one of the best movies of Rajesh Khanna's career. In Anand also his character dies in the end. Though Amitabh Bachchan gave a superb performance, the movie totally belonged to Rajesh Khanna.

Even in films like Disco Dancer and Swarg, Rajesh Khanna's character ultimately dies.
