Rajesh Khanna with Anita Advani (Photos)

During the later stages of his life, Rajesh Khanna had a long-standing live-in relationship with Anita Advani, who is extremely upset that his bungalow ‘Aashirwad’ is being renamed to Vardaan.

“If the rumours are true, it would hurt Kakaji’s (Rajesh Khanna’s) soul. He used to fondly remember and tell me how the bungalow was named Aashirwad. When they were looking for a new name for the bungalow, his father had thought for a long time and then suggested the name Aashirwad. Kakaji has mentioned that his father said, ‘You’ll be a star and people will write letters and fan mail to you. Whenever they write your name on the letters, they will write the words – Rajesh Khanna Aashirwad. So in a way, they would always be giving you their Aashirwad (blessings).’ That was the lovely thought behind the name” reminisced Anita Advani.

On her relationship with Rajesh Khanna and her life in Aashirwad, Anita Advani said “Kakaji used to say that this (Aashirwad) was the ‘most favourite’ name given by his father. The bungalow was also his most prized possession, which he wished to convert into a museum and his last wish should be fulfilled. In fact, together, over the years, we both designed its interiors with a long-term plan to convert it into a museum.”
