Rajesh Khanna’s ex Anju Mahendroo attends his chautha
Rajesh Khanna’s ex-girlfriend Anju Mahendroo whom the superstar dated for seven years before he married Dimple Kapadia attended his chautha held on 21st July in a five star hotel. Anju was one among the well wishers who turned up for Rajesh Khanna’s prayer meeting.
Dressed in white and sunglasses atop her head with hairs pulled back, Anju Mahendroo was also present at the crematorium. It was reported that she burst into tears and almost collapsed when Aarav lit Khanna’s pyre.
A model turned actress Anju Mahendroo was in a relationship with Kaka from 1966 to 1972. Their broke-up was very bitter and Rajesh Khanna went to marry 16 year old Dimple Kapadia, six months before Dimple’s debut film ‘Bobby’ released. Rumor surfaced then that Mr Khanna went out of his way to damage Ms Mahendroo's career after their relationship ended. They did not speak to one another for 17 years.
In the last days of his life, Rajesh Khanna also established an affair with Anita Advani. Soon after Khanna’s death when the family was in utter grief, she sends legal notice to the Khanna’s family demanding his property share. Later Anita Advani denied.
Anita Advani claimed that Rajesh
Khanna’s family misbehaved with her at his funeral and did not allow her to
take part in his last rites but she assured that she will be present at his
prayer meeting but Anita was nowhere seen at Khanna’s prayer meeting.
