Shehzada (lit. The Prince) is a 1972 Bollywood drama film produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by K. Shankar, set during the British Raj. The film stars Rajesh Khanna and Raakhee as the lead pair and the supporting cast included Veena, Pandari Bai and Karan Dawan. The music was composed by R. D. Burman. This was remake of Tamil film Idhu Sathiyam (1963), starring S. A. Asokan, T. S. Balaiah, Kannaamba and Sririanjani in lead roles and directed by K. Shankar. The producer Surinder Kapoor quoted in an interview "Rajesh Khanna who played the title-role in Shehzada was truly of a princely disposition. He started shooting for me without ever discussing the price, saying that we could settle that once the film is made, he said and made banner S. K. International Films became an acknowledged company."[1]



Shehzada grossed 19 million in 1972 at the box office and was declared "Semi-Hit".[2]
