Rajesh Khanna’s girlfriend Anita Advani sent legal notice to his family to stop her evicting from his bungalow. Currently talk are on to convert his palatial Carter Road bungalow into a museum. It is also being said that Rajesh Khanna too wanted to convert his home into a museum.
Anita Advani is said to be the niece of the former president of the Philippines, Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos and his wife Imelda Marcos. She is the childhood friend of Rajesh Khanna.
It is rumored that she also demanded a share of Rajesh Khanna’s property. She sent the notice on the eve of Rajesh Khanna’s demise. She told media, “He had started pushing me away. There were days where he didn’t even want to speak to his own family. They began isolating me, and I had begun to feel lost. I sent that notice when I was annoyed… without him, I had nowhere else to go. But I never thought I would actually lose him. The timing was really bad.”
Anita Advani also told media that she is ignored by Rajesh Khanna’s family and they don’t consider her a part of the family. A source told an English Daily, “During the procession that started from the actor’s home, Advani attempted to climb into the vehicle carrying Kaka’s body. However, Akshay [Kumar] spotted Advani and asked her to get off, as the vehicle was only for family members.”
The same source also revelared, “For the last one month, the family has been trying to oust Advani from the house, where she claims she has been living with Khanna for the last eight years. This is why she sent the notice.”
What Rajesh Khanna felt about Anita Advani? He told media, last year, “Anita and I have been known to each other for 32 years. She was in school then. We are just friends. She is a lovely person. I am very fond of her. But we haven’t reached the stage of love.”
Anita Advani said about his relationship with Rajesh Khanna, “It’s a very special, sacred relationship and I truly relish it. Unlike a normal relationship, there are no demands and expectations. This is much deeper.”
Lets hope Anita Advani and Rajesh Khanna’s family will call truce and find a peaceful and amicable solution to the current crisis.
