Earlier, on his birth anniversary in 2019, Anju had dropped an unseen photo with the legendary actor with the caption, “Still don’t believe it !!! Happy birthday, Kakaji”.

Earlier, in one of her interviews, Anju opened up about her relationship with Rajesh Khanna and stated, “He is a very orthodox man, yet somehow, is always attracted to ultra-modern girls. The confusion was a part of our relationship. If I wore a skirt, he’d snap, why don’t you wear a sari? If I wore a sari, he’d say, why are you trying to project a Bhartiya nari look?”

She added, “Rajesh was becoming increasingly difficult to get along with. His recent flops had upset him mentally and he was moody, temperamental, irritable. All the time he was so tense…almost a nervous wreck.” While Rajesh Khanna had shared, “Often after a hard day at the studios, I’d return home to find a note saying that she had gone to so-and-so’s party…Or when I would drop in tired and lonely, at her house, I would find her entertaining friends…I’d want to spend the evening alone with her.”

For the uninitiated, Rajesh Khanna delivered 17 successive super-hits in three years from 1969-71, which included 15 consecutive solo super-hit films. Such was the craze about him that female fans reportedly wrote letters in blood to him, married his photographs and went into mourning when he tied the knot with Dimple Kapadia in March 1973.
