The controversial Bigg Boss Saath 7
participant Anita Advani has been related to Bollywood due to her rumored affair with the yesteryear's superstar, late Rajesh Khanna
. While it is not known much as to how much she was really a part of his life, it was expected that she would reveal it all in the Bigg Boss house. While she does mention Rajesh Khanna
's name (addressing him as Kakaji) and talks softly about him, she has as yet not revealed much about their relationship as yet.
However, last Saturday host of Bigg Boss Saath 7
came up with a revelation from his side. Talking about how his father, the noted Bollywood writer Salim Khan
knew Anita Advani he revealed that during his father's struggling days he was a paying guest at Anita Advani's aunt's guest house and her aunt was so sweet and caring that she never asked for the rent. In fact, whenever his father had the money he would pay and the family had really taken good care of him. Salman thanked her profusely and Anita looked quite overwhelmed hearing the story.
There is another member in the Bigg Boss house who has a long lost relation with Anita. While it has not come to the fore as yet, it is related to the days when Anita herself was a struggling actress in Bollywood. In her initial days as a starlet she was given a break by none other than veteran producer - director, Rajkumar Kohli
who is father to Anita's co-participant in the Bigg Boss house - Armaan Kohli
. Anita played the role of Mithun Chakraborty's sister Geeta in the Rajkumar Kohli
film Saazish released in 1988. And what's more - the film even starred Rajesh Khanna
's estranged wife Dimple Kapadia.
However, after this film Anita did not seriously pursue a film career and now with her controversial background has found place in the reality show - Bigg Boss Saath 7
sharing screen space with Rajkumar Kohli
's son Armaan Kohli
with whom she has so far a love-hate relation. They are sometimes seen sharing things as friends while at other times they are seen talking behind each other's back about how they don't like each other. Anita who is mostly keeping quiet has till now not spoken to Armaan about it.
It has to be seen as to how many more secrets she has kept to herself which will tumble out of the box one after the other. And she better do that fast because she has been nominated against tough contenders this week and might just be the next person to come out!
