Few people know that Anita Advani, the reported live-in-partner of Rajesh Khanna, had acted with Dimple Kapadia in a movie called Saazish. The film was apparently her first and the last Bollywood appearance.

Anita reportedly approached Rajkumar Kohli in 1980s. It was then she bagged a role
in Mithun Chakraborthy-Dimple Kapadia starrer Saazish. She played Mithun's sister in the film.
A source told the tabloid: “However, after Saazish her film career ended and we are not aware what she did after that.”
Anita Advani had sent a legal notice to the family members recently to prevent her eviction from the house, reports Mid Day.
Anita's cold war with Khanna clan
Khanna's lover of eight years shared a cold vibe with the family for obvious reasons.
“During the procession that started from the actor’s home, Advani attempted to climb into the vehicle carrying Kaka’s body. However, Akshay [Kumar] spotted Advani and asked her to get off, as the vehicle was only for family members,” a source was quoted by the tabloid.

“He had started pushing me away. There were days where he didn’t even want to speak to his own family. They began isolating me, and I had begun to feel lost. I sent that notice when I was annoyed… without him, I had nowhere else to go. But I never thought I would actually lose him. The timing was really bad,” Anita told the tabloid.
Rumour mills suggest Anita Advani has also demanded a share of his property. Anita is the neice of the former president of the Philippines, Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos and his wife Imelda Marcos. Advani is reportedly a childhood friend of the yesteryear superstar.
Blast from the past
Last year in an interview to Mid Day, Rajesh Khanna said he's very fond of Anita, but she's just a friend: "Anita and I have been known to each other for 32 years. She was in school then. We are just friends. She is a lovely person. I am very fond of her. But we haven't reached the stage of love."
Anita at that time said: "It's a very special, sacred relationship and I truly relish it. Unlike a normal relationship, there are no demands and expectations. This is much deeper."
