Rajesh shares, "The moment when I realised I am famous is funny at the same time memorable for me. I went to Subrata Roy's (Sahara Chairperson) son's wedding as my co-star from Kkusum was getting married to him. I remember I just came out of the auditorium and I was in the VVIP lounge where all the celebrities and politicians were there. However, I was standing all alone at that time and I saw Lalu Prasad Yadav and his wife Rabri Devi. Suddenly Rabri Ji called me saying, 'Ai idhar aao suno showing her hands to me and I couldn't believe she was calling me. I went there and said Ji. So she says, 'tum Kkusum ka bhai banta hain na tumhara naam Shashank hai na? Aur andar jis ladki ki shaadi ho rahi hai wahi tumhari biwi banti hai na serial mein?' Maine kaha haan haan. So, that made me beleive that okay, now I am famous."
Well, the memory is indeed a memorable one!
