Dimple files RTI to call Anita’s bluff
Dimple Kapadia may have been silent about Anita Advani’s claims —emotional and otherwise — over Rajesh Khanna, but she now has a document which could act as clinching evidence in her fight against the ‘other woman’.
Anita had filed a case under the Domestic Violence Act against Dimple, Twinkle and Rinkie and Akshay Kumar, claiming that she was in a “domestic relationship” with Kaka and demanded a share of his property and assets.
The family recently received a reply under the RTI Act from the Slum Rehabilitation Authority that shows Anita as Anita F Rodricks, next to one Rodricks Victor Anthony. While Anita’s name appears under the column ‘Spouse Name/Second Name’, Victor’s name appears under the column ‘Head of the family’. It also has her picture alongside.
There is also an allotment letter issued by developer Steven Fernandez in August 2004 to “Smt Anita Rodricks”, intimating her about the flat. It was against a slum tenement held by the Rodricks family in Kitkatwadi, Bandra West.
Anita has claimed she was in a relationship with Rajesh Khanna since 2003 and performed all social and religious obligations of a wife. Dimple’s advocates argued that according to the Supreme Court, for someone to claim to be in a ‘domestic relationship’, both have to be unmarried – a condition not fulfilled in Anita’s case.
When contacted, Anita dismissed the development. “There are many Anitas, many Rodricks, how do you know it is me?”
HC is likely to hear the case on February 6 now.
