Aishwarya-Abhishek visits Dimple at Aashirwad

The closeness between the Khanna’s and Bachchan’s family dates long back when Rajesh Khanna tasted name and fame while Amitabh Bachchan was a struggling actor. Though they were competitors in reel life, both the families became thick friends in the later days. Amitabh Bachchan was the first to visit Khanna’s abode after the news of his dead broke out. The Bachchan also attended the funeral and prayer meeting and has been rallying Aashiwrad to know how the Khanna’s family is doing.

Amitah Bachchan is lending full support to the Khanna family also informed yesterday through his blog that they have been sending food to Aaashirwad as the family of the dead not allowed cooking food till the 13th day as per Hindu rituals. Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog, "The rituals are over. Food from our house has been sent to Dimple, his wife, at his house Aashirwad, where she plans to stay till the terahvein, the 13th day is over."

Recently, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also visited Aashirwad to meet Khanna’s family.  On Saturday, Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan were seen leaving Rajesh Khanna's residence after meeting the superstar's family. 

Unfortunately, Big B and Abhishek could not reach the funeral site of Rajesh Khanna on time due to heavy traffic. Due to uncrotabble crowd, whe Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan decided to walk the few miles to reach the crematorium, they were almost mobbed and had to return.

Big B later wrote on Twitter, "The funeral of Rajesh Khanna was poignant and crowded .. the crowds were in throngs,with scant respect for the situation .. pity !!(sic)"
