Aashirwad, Rajesh Khanan's iconic bungalow on Carter Road in Mumbai has been sold for Re. 90 Crore. For such a prime property, the price is rather modest at Rs 90 crore but perhaps this had to do with the rumour that it was haunted! For diehard Khanna fans, the sale enda a chapter in Hindi cinema. Khanna was keen on converting this bungalow into a museum for public viewing.
Aashirwad was held very dear by the late superstar. He had bought it from Rajendra Kumar after the relesae of Haathi Mere Saathi. Khanna had got a handsome signing amount from its producer, and was only aware that it would help him buy the bungalow. As his films struck gold and his superstardom grew to giddy heights, the crowds outside the bungalow became unmanageable.
