His annual feature for the magazine, 'The Movie Opinion Poll,' which let the public vote for ‘The Best Actor’ and ‘The Best Actress’ among 40 categories, inspired many clones. Raheja also conducted an auction of star paraphernalia, 'Forever Yours,' which included Shammi Kapoor's chess set, Raj Kapoor's tweed coat, Juhi Chawla's pillow and Madhuri's dhak dhak outfit from Beta, the proceeds of which were handed over to Cheshire Homes, an old-age home.


Raheja also writes for TV (Just Mohabbat (fiction), Kasamh Se (fiction), and the BBC World TV show, Film India) and pens poems in English and Hindi, which have been published in several magazines and newspapers. In 2017 Raheja initiated THE DINESH RAHEJA WORKSHOP in which he teaches Bollywood aspirants everything related to the media including the art of image building and giving interviews. In August 2017, he has also released his first book of poems, '101 Haiku by Dinesh Raheja'.


Raheja has collaborated with Jitendra Kothari on four other books on cinema: Indian Cinema, The Bollywood Saga (Roli Books), Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam: The Original Screenplay, Chaudhvin Ka Chand: The Original Screenplay (2014) and Kaagaz Ke Phool – The Original Screenplay (Om Books).

Raheja has initiated a debate group 'Let's Talk Over Chai,' in which professionals from all strands of life—writing, modelling, playback singing, photography, film direction – participate. In consonance with his belief in the need to connect, Raheja, in his spare time, teaches English to the less privileged.


For television, Raheja has written the concept for Tony And Deeya Singh's Just Mohabbat and was one of the prominent writers on Ekta Kapoor's Kasamh Se (2006). UTV asked him to write two seasons of the BBC show, Film India (hosted by Victor Banerjee).


In 1996, after a cover story on The Hundred Luminaries Of Hindi Cinema, he was asked by Padmini Mirchandani of IBH, the publisher of Movie magazine, to give it the shape of a book. Amitabh Bachchan launched the book in Mumbai, and subsequently Rekha, Anil Kapoor and Sridevi launched it in other places.

Ayaz Memon, the editor of Mid-day in the mid '90s, enthused Raheja to write a personalised column for the Sunday paper; and later, an analytical box-office think piece on a weekday. Raheja remained a columnist with Mid-day for an unbroken stint of 13 years (1996 to 2009).


Rising quickly through the ranks, he was the Chief Reporter of Cine Blitz by the time he left in September 1988. Thereafter, he became the Editor of Movie magazine at the young age of 31. He has conducted analytical, in-depth interviews with most of the leading lights of the Hindi film industry including Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Sunny Deol, Rekha, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia, Ram Gopal Varma, Mahesh Bhatt, Mukul Anand and Subhash Ghai.


After a half-hearted attempt at pursuing chartered accountancy, Raheja embraced the true calling of his life in 1982 and embarked on a career in film journalism. He began writing on films first for the monthly magazine, Cine Blitz, though this was preceded by a short stint as a reporter with The Daily newspaper.

He is married to Anita whom he met in December 1982. Anita Raheja is a popular food columnist and author of two bestselling books, Simply Sumptuous Sindhi Cooking and High Tea And Kitty Party Recipes. They have a daughter, Nikita Raheja, better known as Nikita Mohanty in the film industry for her work as a costume stylist for films such as English Vinglish, Two States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Kapoor & Sons.


Raheja was born to a Sindhi business family in Mumbai. His father Bhagwandas Raheja was a finance broker and his mother Janki a housewife. Raheja graduated from Palm Beach High School, Napean Sea Road, in December 1973 and from HR College of Commerce in 1978. Raised on a staple diet of two films a week, he showed a proclivity for the arts from an early age and, while still a reader, began writing about films for magazines such as Filmfare, Star and Style and Cine Blitz. He often won small sums of Rs 100 in contests for the Best Letter of the Month. Interviews with Hema Malini and Zeenat Aman were published, based on his questions as a reader.
