Bollywood's late superstar Rajesh Khanna's iconic bungalow
'Aashirwad' in Mumbai, may reportedly be converted into a museum
very soon, but many of us do not know the bungalow's past. It is
also believed that Khanna's house was haunted, but the residence
also has a past related to the name 'Dimple'.
Well, do not let your imaginations fly too high since we are
definitely not talking about Khanna's wife Dimple Kapadia in
particular. Reports say that Rajesh Khanna had purchased the Cartar
Road bungalow from the yesteryear actor Rajendra Kumar, during the
60s. Interestingly, Rajendra Kumar, back then had named the
bungalow after his daughter Dimple.
Rajendra Kumar left the bungalow and shifted to his new house
Pali Hill, that was again named 'Dimple'. Interestingly, Rajesh
Khanna, who was a bachelor back then, wanted to name his new Cartar
Road bunaglow after his lady love: Dimple Kapadia. So, he
desperately wanted to retain the name, but unfortunately, Rajendra
Kumar did not allow Khanna to do so, as Dimple was his first
choice. So, a heart-broken Khanna had to name his house as
'Aashirwad'. So, now we know, both Khanna and Kumar shared a common
interest in DIMPLE.
