Interview of Anita Advani Rajesh Khanna's Live-In Partner, Calls Herself His Surrogate Wife

Anita Advani, the late superstar Rajesh Khanna's live-in companion talks of her days with him and the reason she is battling his kin…

According to sources, Rajesh Khanna reportedly made his will just a month or so before his death on July 18 this year. His property is equally divided between his two daughters Twinkle Khanna Kumar and Rinke Khanna Saran. However, a day prior to Kaka’s death, members of his family reportedly received a legal notice from Anita Advani, the actor’s live-in-partner of around ten years. Anita’s contention in taking legal recourse is — “I will fight for what is my right.”

Anita Advani, Rajesh Khanna's live-in Partner

OVER TO ANITA:

For the record, what exactly was the nature of your relationship with Rajesh Khanna when he died?
I call myself his surrogate wife. I have lived-in with him at Aashirwad for around eight years. During this period, I took care of him like a wife would.

Then why did Kakaji not acknowledge you publicly?
I don’t know what you mean by public acknowledgement. We shopped together in Bandra. I was by his bedside when he was rushed to hospitals for his medical tests and people have seen us eating out together. We brought Ganesh home for a day-anda-half.I did a karva chauth for him. What more proof do I need to give?

It’s being said that in his will Kaka left everything to his two daughters. How can you ask for anything, especially since you are the outsider?
Who decides whether I’m the outsider or insider? I lived with him for nearly a decade. I was the insider then. During this time, I cared for him, took all his idiosyncrasies in my stride, refurbished Aashirwad with him because he wanted it to be made into a museum. I handled his kitchen... s I was by his side the entire time. Now I’m suddenly being labelled the outsider!

Who else was with him then?
Besides me there was Bala and three other staff members. Kakaji treated all of us like family. He always spoke of settling all of us comfortably because we were the ones who actually cared for him when no one else bothered about him. In May 2011, he took severely ill for the first time. I realised that something was amiss when his haemoglobin levels dropped. But I didn’t think he’d pass away so soon.

But one heard he had a premonition about his death!
Yes he did. He always said he would die at 70.

Why not ask him during his lifetime, for what you think is your rightful inheritance. Why raise the issue now?
I was in love with the man. I didn’t bring up the subject of money with him because I was never with him for his money. I lived in Aashirwad and he ran the house. His family came into the picture only in the last year or so. Initially everyone was nice to me. However when his end was near, and the subject of inheritance came up, the family wanted me out. I was thrown out of the bungalow; I wasn’t allowed to be on the truck that carried his body, I suddenly became an outcast. That’s why I’ve decided to fight my battle in court.

Are you asking for compensation because of their behaviour or you really think you deserve something?
As I said, I was his surrogate wife when he passed away. I knew of his wish to make Aashirwad a museum. I knew he would never have wanted the bungalow’s name to be changed. He was a fastidious man. Even if I changed the position of a pen on his table, he hated it. I know he will be heart-broken if the bungalow is not maintained as a museum. He talked of people climbing the staircase, looking at his pictures on the wall; noticing his trophies and everything around the house.

So you are only fighting to safeguard his last wish?
That, and I’m also asking for compensation for giving the man the best years of my life. If he were alive, then I would be happy to be around him. But now that he has gone and his kin have treated me badly, I feel the need to ask for what I think is my rightful share. My world has gone upside down because of his death. I don’t know whether I will ever be able to pick up the pieces of my life. Others came into his life only recently. I was always there for him through the loneliest and longest phase in his life.

Ek Tha Tiger Box Office Report/Review - Collections Cross 155 cr in Week 1

Salman’s Ek Tha Tiger earns Rs 155 cr at Box Office in an extended 9 day week 1

Salman Khan's much-hyped movie Ek Tha Tiger has concluded the first week with a superb collection at the Box Office in India. The Kabir Khan directed romantic-action thriller has smashed all records of Ra.One, Agneepath and 3 Idiots. Interestingly, the film has surpassed the lifetime collection of Salman's previous movies like Dabangg and Bodyguard in just a week.


Before its release, promos of Ek Tha Tiger had created lot of curiosity among the movie buffs and Salmania had reached sky high. The movie, which released on 3,300 screens in India on August 15, registered 100% occupancy in both single screens and multiplexes. Theatres in several areas were crowded so much on the first day that theatre owners had to call in the police to control the mob.

Ek Tha Tiger raked in Rs 32.92 crores at the desi Box Office on the first day of its release. It is a very big amount as far as Hindi movies in India is concerned as no other movie had ever scored such a huge sum earlier. With this, the film surpassed the first day collection mark set by Agneepath, which had raked in Rs 23 crore nett on its opening day.

But the collection of Ek Tha Tiger went down by more than 50% on following days due to working day for schools, colleges and other offices. Its business picked up well on Sunday with the movie crossing Rs 100 crore mark in just five days, which is the biggest collection record in Indian Cinema so far. The breakup of its first weekend collection is Rs 32.92 cr on Wed, Rs 14.5 cr on Thur, Rs 12.90 cr on Fri, Rs 16.75 cr on Sat and Rs 23.06 cr nett on Sun.

Due to Eid holiday, the business of Ek Tha Tiger improved further on Monday with its occupancy ranging between 85% to 100% at both single screens and multiplexes. The movie witnessed dip in its collection on Tuesday and it continued to fall till the end of the first week. It has grossed Rs 156 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the nine day first week. Its weekdays' breakup is Rs 20.68 cr Mon, Rs 16.31 cr on Tue and Rs 10.45 cr on Wed and Rs 7.5 cr on Thur.

Overall, Ek Tha Tiger has received an overwhelming response at the domestic Box Office throughout the first week. The movie has shattered all old records and set several new records like all time biggest opener, the highest grosser first weekend, the highest grosser first week, the fastest Rs 100 crore grosser in just 5 days, ETT also turned out to be the first film to record over 10 crores in each of its first eight days, something that hasn’t ever happened before. Now Ek Tha Tiger is the second biggest grosser of all times, hence being next only to ‘3 Idiots‘ (202 Crore) crores).

the Salamn-Katrina starrer should do well in second week as well and though the percentage drop from first week would be seemingly high, one has to consider the fact that 150 crores plus in 9 days is no mean feat. Still, a second week of around 35 crore is a possibility which means the film would be ~190+ crore by second week end. Post that it would be a close watch to see the 200 crore mark being reached, something which cannot be ruled out

First Day Box Office Collections Report Of Ek Tha Tiger, Opening Day Box Office Review of Ek Tha Tiger

Ek Tha Tiger Obliterates All Opening Box Office Records

Ek Tha Tiger opened this morning across India and there are no words to describe the opening. It is simply tearing to shreds all opening records at every centre in India. 'Ek Tha Tiger' has historic, unparalleled start at the box office.

In the last few years there has been record breaking films like Three Idiots, Dabangg, Bodyguard and Agneepath but with all these films there have always been centres or circuits that are not record breaking but this is not the case with Ek Tha Tiger, every centre and every circuit is on a record breaking spree.

Its just not new records being set but the margins they are being set by, its impossible to put a number on its opening day business this early but it is sure to smash the opening day record figure by a distance.

At places [Jaipur], police had to called... At several places, people garlanded Salman's pic on the hoardings... The sea of people outside every theatre cannot be described in mere words... It's pandemonium at single screens and also at plexes as Salman makes an entry in the movie... The Salmania is visible at every centre, every theatre.

It's a bit too early to predict the kind of business EK THA TIGER will generate on Wednesday, 15 August, but, one thing is certain: It will set new benchmarks in every circuit. First day business. 30 cr seems definite *as per trends*. 35 cr possible too.

Ek Tha Tiger Movie Review

The Hindi film industry is not new to espionage themes. Rather, the secret agent thrillers date back to the 60s and 70s. Recall films like ANKHEN, INTERNATIONAL CROOK, FARZ, SPY IN ROME, JEWEL THIEF, also THE GREAT GAMBLER, SURAKKSHA, AGENT VINOD and GOPICHAND JASOOS…

Post WANTED, DABANGG and BODYGUARD, all Eid releases, Salman Khan and Yash Raj, the premier production house, unleash their first collaboration together, again on Eid. The Pied Piper of the Hindi film industry, who is on a dream run, delivering one Blockbuster after another, is expected to shatter previous records and set new ones at the box-office.


Is EK THA TIGER at par/better than the previous Salman starrers? All I'd say is that the comparisons, though inevitable, are erroneous. As a standalone film, EK THA TIGER is enthralling and most significantly, an entertaining motion picture. On the exterior, it is a compelling love story/thriller. But beneath the entertainment that it offers, it carries a message as well. Loud and clear. If the spectators can see through the coating, great. Even if they don't, they will yet go back in high spirits.

Let me clarify, EK THA TIGER is not a 'dark film'. No jingoism. No political statements. This is no James Bond duplication either. It reintroduces a megastar, who is at the pinnacle of his illustrious career, in a wholly new space. This one's made by a desi, with desi sensibilities, but targeting the desi audience as well as those beyond the shores of the country. So, there!

In the dark world of intelligence and espionage, all information is guarded in the name of national security. But some stories escape the fiercely guarded classified files...

In a government employees' neighbourhood in New Delhi, there lived a rugged, handsome and mysterious bachelor about whom his neighbours knew nothing. That was because he was India's top spy, an officer with the Research and Analysis Wing [RAW]. This man was known even in official corridors as Tiger [Salman Khan].

Tiger is sent on a relatively easy and safe mission to Dublin, Ireland to observe a scientist of Indian origin [Roshan Seth], who is suspected of sharing his research findings with the Pakistan defence establishment. Tiger attempts to meet the scientist, but is not successful. He tries to befriend the scientist's part-time home caretaker, Zoya [Katrina Kaif]. As Tiger begins to get closer to Zoya, he begins to discover his human side. For the first time in his life, Tiger falls in love...

What follows is a tumultuous journey that Tiger and Zoya embark upon, battling the dark world of intelligence and espionage that forbids its soldiers from falling in love.

Come to think of it, when you saunter into a cineplex to catch EK THA TIGER, what you want, more than anything else, is an adrenaline rush. Director Kabir Khan's take on a RAW agent is very close to real, but, at the same time, it's not a docu-drama. Nor is the agent a clone of Jason Bourne or James Bond. Like I pointed out at the outset, it's desi at heart. Also, clever, amusing and thoroughly entertaining.

Kabir Khan's direction is thoughtful, focused and never goes off-track. In fact, EK THA TIGER takes the detective genre in Hindi movies to a fresh altitude. Besides, Kabir and co-writer Neelesh Mishra open the cards gradually and the highpoint is the interval point when Salman unravels something shocking. Post interval, the film throws one surprise after another and it reaches its crescendo in the concluding stages, with the climax making a solid impression.

EK THA TIGER travels across the globe to capture some of the most exotic locales in the world and the DoP [Aseem Mishra] captures them with flourish. EK THA TIGER has a pleasant score [Sohail Sen, Sajid-Wajid]. 'Mashallah' is the pick of the lot, followed by 'Banjara' and 'Laapata'. The stunts are truly crackling. In fact, the action sequences are of the heart-in-the-mouth variety and if one may add, such stunts and chases have never ever been witnessed on the Hindi screen before. The dialogue is intelligent and sharp.

Blemishes? Not really, but, yes, the leisurely unfurling of the love story in the first hour slackens the narrative occasionally. Since the sequences are so cute and the fact that the ones performing them are Salman and Katrina, one doesn't really mind it, actually.

When you have Salman in a movie titled EK THA TIGER, the director doesn't need to convince the audience that he is a tiger. Salman looks the part! Clutching the thriller with his dynamic presence and performance, Salman is, without doubt, the lifeline of this film. He pulls off the part with flamboyance. Also, he brings in so much visceral rousing energy to the film, every time he appears on the screen. Salman and Katrina pair up after a hiatus in EK THA TIGER and their chemistry is electrifying. Though an out-and-out Salman starrer, Katrina is not relegated to the backseat. Neither is she Salman's arm candy here. She has a meaty part and to her credit, she handles it with aplomb. Also, watch out for her stunts... This is a new Katrina here!

Girish Karnad is excellent. Ranvir Shorey is first-rate. His scenes with Salman are truly wonderful. Roshan Seth is adequate.

On the whole, EK THA TIGER is a high-octane thriller that works big time. This one has style and substance, both, besides dazzling action, stunning international locales and stylish execution. Most importantly, it has Salman Khan, the trump card of this enterprise. There's no denying that Salman's charisma has resulted in a mind-blowing, astounding, never-seen-before start at the ticket window, but the film's content will sustain it thereafter. The film has long legs to prolong its splendid run. This is, without doubt, Salman's best. Sure shot Blockbuster!

Movie Review of Ek Tha Tiger by Taran Adarsh

Ek Tha Tiger Box Office Report/Review

EK THA TIGER: Release Phenomenal, Advance Booking Phenomenal

Ek Tha Tiger will shatter all first day box office records all over India as the advance booking for the film is phenomenal and that too on a phenomenal release across India. Ek Tha Tiger that releases tomorrow - 15th Aug 2012, will be the first Hindi film to be screened in over 3000 screens. Ra.One and Don2 had 3000 plus screens but that was not just Hindi but with their South India dubbed versions as well.


The advance box office booking for Ek Tha Tiger which opened over the weekend at places is phenomenal in every circuit. Obviously with such wide releases you don't get 70-80% first day tickets sold in advance for day one as was the case 10-12 years back but the film will have the highest number of tickets sold in advance before the day of release.

Ek Tha Tiger should set important benchmarks across India tomorrow (15 Aug 2012), when it releases. Salman is now all set to regain the opening day box office record that was created with Bodyguard last Eid, with expectation of nothing less than Rs. 30 crores opening day. The film is also expected to hit double digit figures in Mumbai circuit. If it hits the 10 crore nett mark in Mumbai it will be the first time that a circuit total has hit double digit numbers.

Meanwhile bets are being placed on the number of days in which Ek Tha Tiger would cross the Rs. 100 crore milestone. The record is currently held by Salman himself whose Bodyguard had managed this total in its extended week last year. Now for Ek Tha Tiger it is expected that Salman would manage this huge moolah in five-six days flat.

It could also create records in Mysore and Tamil Nadu where the last few Salman Khan starrers have not broken records despite breaking records in other circuits.

However that is just the beginning. Real fun would begin from Monday onwards after Eid. If the film is indeed appreciated, sky would be the limit as Muslim audiences are expected to flock the theatres on weekdays as well. It would be the best Eid haul ever for Bollywood if the film lives up to the hype

That would result in another round of calculations for the film because it would be Aamir Khan's record of 3 Idiots that would come under the scanner. Whether Ek Tha Tiger box office collections actually beats the final business of Three Idiots depends on content, the opening will give it a real great chance. The distributor share of Three Idiots is an easier target and can be achieved even with average appreciation.

"For Salman it is pretty much assured that Bodyguard total of over Rs. 148 crores would be comfortably beaten. However, he is challenging Rs. 200 crores that 3 Idiots had accumulated", comments a source, "With everything going in the film's favour, no competition in sight and no major release for three more weeks, getting on the top of the game would be the real deal for Salman."
