His recent flops had upset him mentally and he was moody, temperamental, irritable. All the time he was so tense...almost a nervous wreck." Just like every coin has two sides, this story too, had a different perspective and Rajesh Khanna had told his side, "Often after a hard day at the studios, I'd return home to find a note saying that she had gone to so-and-so's party...Or when I would drop in tired and lonely, at her house, I would find her entertaining friends...I'd want to spend evening alone with her."

In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Mahesh Bhatt had revealed that she was there by Kaka's side when he had taken his last breath. Mahesh had said, "After I learnt of Khanna's death through the media, I thought of Anju because I knew she would be affected by his death. I managed to reach her late at night and learnt that Khanna and Anju had got together in the last years of his life. She used to take care of his medical needs and even accompanied him to hospital. Holding back her tears, she told me, 'My only consolation is that I was holding his hand when he took his last breathe'."
