A metropolitan court has asked late Rajesh Khanna's family members (wife Dimple Kapadia, daughters Twinkle and Rinke, son-in-law Akshay Kumar) to appear before it "without fail" on December 4. This was done for them to reach a settlement w.r.t. the complaint filed against them by Anita Advani, who claimed to be the late actor's live-in partner and was asking for maintenance from the estate of the late actor.
After hearing Anita's complaint (which was filed under the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act), Magistrate SS Deshpande suggested that both the sides should settle the issue cordially. He also added that, if they agreed, then, he would refer the case to a mediator the same day. He also added that that if the parties did not agree to a settlement, he would hear the matter and dispose it off in a month.
Anita, in her petition allegedly stated that post the actor's death in July; his family members expelled her and hence committing an offence under the Domestic Violence Act. In addition to this, she also challenged Khanna's will, by stating that he had not left behind any will and that a will was forged by his family. She even went onto allege that the actor's family had obtained his thumb impression on the will when he was critically ill and not capable of understanding anything.
Clarifying her stand, Anita claimed that she was entitled to maintenance to support herself, as she lived with the actor in the 'shared household' (defined under the Domestic Violence Act as a place where a man and woman live as husband and wife).
