New Delhi: Yesteryear's superstar Rajesh Khanna's sea-facing bunglow 'Aashirwad' is reportedly being sold off at a price much lower than its actual value.
Late actor's dream home has been sold off to businessman Shashi Shetty, founder and executive chairman of Mumbai-headquartered Allcargo Logistics for just Rs. 95 crore.
Shocking to many estate kings who believe that the price is much lower than what could have been yearned of this coastal property. This move comes after many controversies that surrounded the property soon after Rajesh Khanna's death.
It was known to many that Rajesh Khanna and his wife Dimple Kapadia had been living separately for many years until his death.
Rajesh Khanna's friend and self-claimed flame Anita Advani brought into light the fact of them living together during the final years of the actor.
Soon after his death, Dimple Kapadia and his daughters Twinkle, Rinkie admonished Anita from living in 'Aashirwad' and ordered her to vacate the property with immediate effect much to the chagrin of Anita who sent them a notice to be re-instated in the bungalow.
Anita also claimed of being ill-treated and manhandled by Dimple and Akshay Kumar during late actor Rajesh Khanna's funeral journey.
The clash regarding Rajesh Khanna's bungalow had kept both parties on their toes for too long. But recently after Khanna's daughters Twinkle & Rinkie decided to add 'Vardaan' as a prefix to 'Aashirwaad', the move didn't go too well with Ms Advani and she sent another notice to Dimple and her daughters saying, 'This move would hurt Rajesh as he never wanted anyone to change anything in his dream home'.
After a long tussle of ownership, finally Dimple Kapadia and daughters Twinkle and Rinkie sold off the controversial property to one businessman at a much lower price, inciting Anita Advani once again.
It is believed that one of the prime reasons for selling off 'Aashirwaad' at much lower price would be the haunting controversies surrounding the property for so long.
