Late superstar Rajesh Khanna’s alleged girlfriend, Anita Advaani, who reportedly lived with him for almost 22 years at his residence Ashirwad, made news over the legal tussles with Khanna’s wife Dimple Kapadia and family after his death.

And when a person has some kind of controversial past, it is never surprising that they be approached to be a part of Bigg Boss. Before entering the house, however, Anita admits that she will use the platform to continue her fight for her rights. The case is still sub-judice, so she chose to remain tight-lipped about the legal issues. However, she says, “I think a woman should be respected and not used and dumped. That’s what I am fighting for. That is also a very big reason behind why I am here. It’s been a nightmare for me,” she says.

Anita also adds that she is still striving to fulfil Khanna’s dream, which she claims he had asked her to finish. “It was his dream to make Ashirwad a museum,” says the reality show contestant.
