I'll Fight for Justice: Anita Advani

Mumbai, Nov 10 (IANS): Anita Advani, who claims to be late Rajesh Khanna's live-in partner, has sent a notice to the late superstar's family for evicting her from his bungalow.

"I have been cheated. How can anybody do this? I am extremely upset," Advani told IANS.

"We have sent the notice and I am going to fight for justice. A woman should not suffer all her life like this. Women should have the right to fight for justice. Manohar Shetty is my lawyer," she added.

According to media reports, Advani filed a domestic violence case in a Bandra court.

On Thursday, the Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate ordered notices to be served to Rajesh Khanna's wife Dimple Kapadia, son-in-law and actor Akshay Kumar and daughters Twinkle Khanna and Rinki Saran.

Advani says she has spent the best time with Rajesh Khanna.

"It was the most memorable time of my life and nobody can take it away from me. I had spent the best phase of my life with him.

"The journey was sweet and sour - I have some good memories and some horrifying memories as well."

She claims she had a cordial relationship with the actor's family before he passed away in July.

"But things changed during the end. It's really sad. I don't want to talk about it," Advani said.

She hopes she is granted protection under the Domestic Violence Act and allowed access to Ashirwad, Rajesh Khanna's bungalow in Bandra, where she claimed to have lived with the actor since 2003.

Her lawyer Shetty told IANS: "The respondents will have to reply Nov 27. Anita has been humiliated and removed from Ashirwad by the family members, which is unfair."

When contacted, the late actor's close family friend Vijay Zaveri said: "We don't want to comment on it."

    Live-in-relationship is like living as someone's keep - a role of very low respect in a society (especially Indian). Such relationship has no legal status.

    What do you want Anita Advani ? His bungalow ? He may have made a will for his property. If you were so close to him, he may have written it for you. While you never married him, how can staying with him (as you say) taken as a basis for legal inheritance ?

    Shame on opportunist women like you who misuse Domestic Violence Law ! Because of the likes of you, genuine victims go through hell to get justice !
