Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia were the first superstar couple of Bollywood. Rajesh Khanna married Dimple, who was 15 years younger to him, in March 1973. At that time, Dimple Kapadia was still shooting for her debut film Bobby. The film was a superhit and people loved Dimple Kapadia in the movie. But Rajesh Khanna stopped Dimple from signing more films and told her to stay at home. Dimple was not even seventeen when she gave birth to her first daughter Twinkle Khanna. But Khanna hardly used to spend time with his family. Soon Khanna and Dimple's marriage started falling apart and Dimple Kapadia regretted her decision of marrying Kaka.
Dimple Kapadia once said in an interview to a magazine, "The life and happiness in our house came to an end the day I and Rajesh got married." However, even after living separately from Rajesh Khanna, the couple never thought of divorcing each other. Talking about her divorce Dimple Kapadia had said that she and her husband Rajesh Khanna have decided to leave things as they are, as they both don't want to go for second marriage.
However, in the last few months of Rajesh Khanna, Dimple Kapadia did her best to take care of the ailing actor. Reportedly, she even shifted to Rajesh Khanna's residence Ashirwad to keep an eye on his health.
Well, even after so much of ups and downs in their life Dimple and Rajesh were one of the most loved couple of Bollywood.
