Aamir Khan's `rockstar cousin' Tariq Khan releases book RD BurMania
Amid loud applauses, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's first cousin Tariq Khan, who was popular as the `dancing rockstar' during the 70s, released the current edition of the book RD BurMania.

The book which has been authored by Mumbai-based senior award-winning journalist Chaitanya Padukone, was released at a grand musical event in Pune organised by PanchamMagic Group. The group is a popular RD Burman fans association. The event was held on January 4, to mark the 23rd death anniversary of the legendary Bollywood composer.

Tariq, who has had a string of iconic RDB songs picturised on him, including `Kya Hua Tera Wada', Tum Kya Jaano Mohabbat Kya Hai', sung by RD himself and `Chand Mera Dil' – from the film Hum Kisise Kam Naheen (1977) – and `Lekar Hum Deewana Dil', `Aap Ke Kamre Main Koi Rehta Hai – from the 1973 superhit film Yaadon Ki Baaraat, on the occasion said, "It's my honour to soft-launch this classic book of RD memoirs, as I owe my stardom during the `70s mainly to the genius composer, besides my uncle Nasir Hussain saab."

Bollywood publicist Dale Bhagwagar said, "Tariq Khan has been publicity-shy all these years. Although this was his formal public appearance after a hiatus of 15 years, he made a startling entry on stage, `dancing' to one of his songs and sporting his trademark sunglasses of the `70s movies. The public was charmed hearing the classic iconic numbers."

The actor was supported by eminent composer Anand (of Anand Milind) who had composed the music for Aamir Khan's debut movie Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak.
