Khanna and Dimple Kapadia met after Dimple broke
up with her teenage boyfriend Rishi Kapoor. Dimple Kapadia was 15
years younger to Rajesh Khanna but that did not stop the couple to
tie the knot. However, their marriage could not survive for more
than 10 years and the reason behind their failed marriage is said
to be Rajesh Khanna's downfall.
Rumour has it that Khanna could not accept his failure. He took
his success for granted. So, when his films started getting
flopped, he became very short tempered. It is said that he used to
vent out his frustration on Dimple. Dimple, who left her career for
him, was unable to cope with his this kind of behaviour. When she
felt that she can't take it more, she decided to leave Khann'a
house with their two daughters Twinkle and Rinke Khanna.
The biggest reason for their failed marriage was Khanna's
addiction to alcohol and his strange obsession with power. He never
accepted his downfall and the reality, because of this the actor
was left alone in isolation.
