The time when Dimple Khanna dismissed to speak foul things about Ex-Husband Rajesh Khanna
Dimple was just 16 when she had gotten married to Rajesh, who was 15 years elder to her
Dimple Kapadia is an Indian actress who predominantly appears in Hindi films. Born and raised in Bombay by wealthy parents, she aspired to become an actress from a young age and received her first opportunity through her father’s efforts to launch her in the film industry.
At age 15, she married the actor Rajesh Khanna, then aged 30, after a short romance. The wedding was performed according to Arya Samaj rites on 27 March 1973 in her father’s bungalow in Juhu. At her husband’s instruction, Kapadia left acting following the marriage. She gave birth to two daughters, Twinkle (1974) and Rinke (1977). Kapadia separated from Khanna in April 1982 and returned with her two daughters to her parents’ house.
Dimple celebrated her 64th birthday on June 8 2021, Tuesday, once told journalist Khalid Mohamed that she won’t be able to badmouth any negative statements about Rajesh Khanna out of her. In a 2017 article Dimple was quoted as saying, “Kaka (Rajesh Khanna) has been consistently misunderstood. He’s a wonderful guy. I was far too young and impetuous when we married.We may have separated, but I still have tremendous regard and love for him. So don’t you dare try to extract any nasty statements from me. Kaka’s superstardom had to be experienced to be believed.”
Even after she parted her ways with Rajesh, she stood for his well-being and support. She still campaigned for her husband Rajesh Khanna in the late 90s when he decided to join politics. Kaka fell ill in early 2012, and Kapadia stayed by his side and took care of him until his death on 18 July that year.
When Rajesh met Dimple for the first time, he was completely struck by her charm. Without wasting any time, Rajesh proposed Dimple for marriage. And being a huge fan of Kaka, she didn’t think twice before accepting his proposal. Dimple was just 16 when she had gotten married to Rajesh, who was 15 years elder to her.
