Fondly known as 'Kaka' among his colleagues in the industry, the actor passed away on July 18 last year after being critically ill.
"Kakaji was remembered not only as an actor, but as a Congressman. We would request Rajiv Shukla (MP) to have Carter Road named after Rajesh Khanna.... It’s a request," Dimple told reporters at an event.
In response, Shukla said, "His contribution is immense to the film world and as a Parliamentarian. He had a huge fan-following. I would request the Urban Development Ministry about this... We hope the road will be named after Kakaji.”
"I will have to talk to Chief Minister (Prithviraj Chavan) to ascertain if Carter Road is not named after Naushadji (music composer Naushad Ali)," he added.
Khanna, the first superstar of Indian cinema, had given 15 consecutive solo hit films, a record that remains unbroken till today.
