Anita Advani, niece of former president of Philippines Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos, is often seen at Rajesh Khanna's bungalow, and they look very much like a couple in love. She revealed that she loves him. “I am great friend with Rajesh Khanna. I have known him for a very long time. We are great friends," Mid-Day quoted her as saying. Asked if they are just friends, she said, “I love him... who doesn't?"
Anita said that she is happy to be with the actor. “I think I am very happy in my relationship. I feel very privileged to be very-very close to him. He is a very intelligent and romantic person," she said, adding, “We hang out. We are at home together. We go out for dinners and stuff and go on after-dinner drives."
Going deeper into their relationship, she said, “It's a very special, sacred relationship and I truly cherish it. Unlike a normal relationship, there are no demands and expectations. This is much deeper." She said that anyone in her place would love to marry but she doesn't want any string attached, as they are so close and happy together.
However, Rajesh Khanna, who was earlier married to Dimple Kapadia, claimed that they are just good friends. “Anita and I have been known to each other for 32 years. She was in school then. We are just friends. She is a lovely person. I am very fond of her. But we haven't reached the stage of love," Mid-Day quoted him as saying.
