A metropolitan court here has ordered notices be issued to family members of Rajesh Khanna on a complaint filed by a woman claiming to be his live-in partner seeking maintenance on the ground that she had looked after the actor as a wife would have done.
In her petition, Anita Advani has accused Khanna's family of having evicted her from his bungalow, thereby attracting provisions of the Domestic Violence Act.
Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate had yesterday ordered notices be served on the actor's wife Dimple Kapadia, son-in-law and actor Akshay Kumar and daughters Twinkle Kumar and Rinki Saran.
"The notices were hand delivered to us today and we shall serve them on Khanna's family tomorrow through a bailiff. The matter is posted for hearing on interim reliefs on November 27," her lawyer Manohar Shetty told PTI.
Advani has prayed that she be granted protection under the Domestic Violence Act, allowed access to Ashirwad, the actor's bungalow in Bandra where she claimed to have lived with Khanna since 2003.
