Celebs at Rajesh Khanna’s prayer meet



Bollywood celebs paid their respects to 70s superstar Rajesh Khanna on his first death anniversary on Thursday. The prayer ceremony was held by Khanna’s actor-wife Dimple Kapadia, 56, at Khanna’s bungalow, Aashirwaad.

His daughter Twinkle was seen with her kids Aarav, 10, and 10-month-old Nitara, who made her first public appearance. Although his son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar, wasn’t present, he paid respects through his Facebook page.

To mark late actor Rajesh Khanna’s legacy, hundreds of fans and members of the film industry gathered to offer their respects on his first death anniversary, in Mumbai. “It’s been a year today, yet the loss is still so fresh. I don’t quite think any of us have accepted my father-in-law’s devastating departure... To Mr. Rajesh Khanna, they make very few like you, you are a father, a legend & a very treasured man,” actor Akshay Kumar posted on his Facebook page. Those spotted at the gathering included actors Anju Mahendroo Jackie Shroff and Kabir Sadanand and filmmaker Subhash Ghai, among others.
