According to an article published in Bangalore Mirror website, Rajesh Khanna always wanted a son from Dimple. The article reads, "Dimple had one baby, then another - and she was not yet seventeen. The problems had begun. Rajesh (who'd wanted a son) did not look at the second daughter for months, and the family forgot to give the poor child a name. Dimple stayed on with her parents who had begun to rant against their son-in-law."
However, in the last years of his life, Rajesh Khanna apologised to Dimple. Reportedly, when he was very ill, Dimple Kapadia shifted to his residence Aashirwad to take care of the ailing star.
