Mumbai: Rajesh Khanna's live-in partner Anita Advani has filed a domestic violence case against Dimple Kapadia, actor Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna, Rinki Khanna and her husband at Bandra court.

Is Kaka’s house Ashirwad haunted?

A metropolitan court in Mumbai has ordered notices be issued to late Bollywood legend Rajesh Khanna's family members on a complaint filed by Anita Advani, claiming to be his live-in partner seeking maintenance on the ground that she had looked after the actor as a wife would have done.

In her petition, Anita Advani has accused Khanna's family of having evicted her from his bungalow, thereby attracting provisions of the Domestic Violence Act.

Akshay Kumar was not available for any comment as he is shooting in Dubai. But his secretary informed that Akshay would look into this matter after returning to India.

Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate had on Wednesday ordered notices be served on the actor's wife Dimple Kapadia, son-in-law and actor Akshay Kumar and daughters Twinkle Kumar and Rinki Saran.

"The notices were hand delivered to us today and we shall serve them on Khanna's family on Friday through a bailiff. The matter is posted for hearing on interim reliefs on November 27," her lawyer Manohar Shetty said to a news agency.

Advani has pleaded that she be granted protection under the Domestic Violence Act. Anita demanded that either she is allowed access to 'Ashirwad' where she claimed to have lived with Khanna since 2003 or she should be compensated with Rs 50 cr so that she could buy a house to live.

She also claimed that since she had taken care of Kaka as a wife for a long time she has the right to Khanna’s property worth approximately Rs 600 crore. Adding to this Anita also said that Kaka’s health was not stable at the time of preparing his will and owing to this only his thumb impression was taken instead of signature.
