Rajesh Khanna is busy with the planning of a grand multi-crore multiplex resort built on hundreds of acres of land in Shirdi with foreign investors.
In the process
Talking about his project Khanna says, “Right now, I don’t want to talk too much about the plans but yes, we are in the process of building a huge multi-crore, one-of-its-kind resort in Shirdi. We have bought the land but waiting for the foreign investors who will here in January and we will finalise everything then.”
No biz with family
Khanna adds, “My concept is fantastic and has never been seen before in a religious place in India. The resort is one and half km away from the temple in Shirdi and not on the outskirts. We are building two multiplexes too in the resort there especially for children who accompany their parents for puja or darshan. There will be lots of free facilities too like transport, etc.” Khanna, had recently gone to Shirdi during Diwali for his bhoomi pujan.
He adds enthusiastically. I have been a disciple of Sai Baba for many years and have been going there every time he calls to bless me.” The resort is in partnership with some partners in India because it’s too big for the actor to handle by himself. He clarifies that his son-in-law Akshay Kumar and daughters Twinkle and Rinke are not involved in the project? “No they are not involved. I don’t do business with my family.”
When asked about his entry in BB3, Khanna laughs aloud, “No comment! I am not saying anything but I will have the last laugh on this.” When asked about the rumours that his damaad Akshay paid him to stay away from the reality show, he turns suddenly serious and says, “Why don’t you ask him this? I can’t say anything more.”
