Anita Advani who claimed to be a live-in partner of late Rajesh Khanna today filed a fresh case in a local court against the late superstar's wife Dimple Kapadia,daughters Twinkle and Rinkie and son-in-law Akshay Kumar for allegedly throwing her out of his bungalow.
Advani had last year filed a similar complaint in Bandra court under the Domestic Violence Act in which she claimed maintenance, following which the court issued summons to Kapadia and other family members.

 However, the proceedings were stayed after Khanna's family members moved the Bombay High Court which posted the case for hearing on February 6.

In the case filed today in Bandra court under similar offences under IPC, Advani claimed that she was thrown out of Khanna's plush bungalow 'Ashirwad' on Carter Road after his death. She also alleged that the late superstar's signature was forcibly taken on the will although he was not medically fit to sign it.

 According to Advani's lawyer Manohar Shetty, the complaint includes video and audio recording of Khanna's signature being taken on the will and some other things to show that his client stayed in Khanna's house.

Advani said she moved to court as police did not take action on her complaint on alleged offences. Metropolitan Magistrate S S Deshpande posted the complaint for hearing and issue of process on February 14.

Dimple Kapadia had contended in the high court that she was the legally wedded wife of Khanna and as such no other woman can claim share in the wealth left behind by him.

The yesteryear actress also challenged the notices issued to her and family members by the Bandra magistrate on Advani's complaint alleging domestic violence and seeking
monthly maintenance from Khanna's estate.

 The magistrate, Kapadia argued, should not have entertained the complaint which has made "baseless" charges.

 She contended that it was "unreasonable" for the magistrate to even suggest that she and her family go in for a compromise with the complainant in which case he would refer
the matter for mediation.
