Mumbai: After veteran superstar Rajesh Khannas demise last month, his home on Carter Road in Bandra turned into almost a shrine where thousands of fans poured in to pay their last respects. According to the late actors last wish, the iconic landmark Aashirwad has been renamed as Vardan Aashirwad.
While some have expressed surprise at the sudden name change, we tell you the reason behind it. A source close to the family says, It was Kakajis last wish. He wanted the name of the bungalow to be changed from Aashirwad to Vardan Aashirwad. However, it could not be done earlier due to his failing health. The name was finally altered only a couple of days back.
The source adds, Kakaji always felt that Aashirwad should be named Vardan Aashirwad and he had conveyed his wish to his wife Dimple Kapadia and daughters and his son-in-law Akshay Kumar. Thats how now one can see the new name on the bungalow.
