RAJESH KHANNA'S death surprisingly brought him back to the minds of people, as they remembered the original superstar and the craze again evoked in their minds and hearts. Many facets of the actor's life came to the fore again - the fact that he loved the finer things in life such as wealth, name and fame, had a disturbed personal life and most recently it has been reported that he had a live-in partner who now after his death wants a share in his will.
Anita Advani, the woman in question sent a legal notice to the then alive actor Khanna on July 16 claiming a house to live in, a monthly maintenance and compensation owing to the live-in relationship that they had for the last 10 years. There has been an Apex Court ruling in 2010 that after a woman gets out of the live-in relationship under certain circumstances she is entitled to maintenance.
However, Advani's case is different, says Lawyer Pradeep Kumar, “If Rajesh Khanna was alive and they were parting ways then she would be entitled lawfully to some maintenance but since the actor never divorced his wife Dimple Kapadia, now after his death the Live-in partner is not entitled to get anything out of the property. The absence of a will of property would be divided equally among his wife and two children.”
While Dimple Kapadia and Akshay Kumar did not comment on the matter, Ashwin Thakkar, who was the late actor's business manager, said that there were more than one people who used to come to visit the actor and she was one of them but her claims of being in a live-in relationship with Khanna is not true.
In the legal notice, Anita Advani claims that she was 13 years when she met the actor but it was not before a decade after that they got into a relationship. After living together for 10 years it was in June 2012 that Khanna forbid the lady from entering Aashirwad. It seems strange that it was only one month later that the actor passed away. It was prophetic when Amitabh Bachchan uttered those words in Anand, “Anand mara nahi, Anand marte nahin.”
