Rajesh Khanna married actress Dimple Kapadia in March 1973. Dimple Kapadia was 16 at that time and Rajesh Khanna was 15 years older than her. But that did not stop the lovers from tying the knot. The marriage happened six months before Dimple Kapadia's debut film Bobby released, which gave her the title of a sex bomb.

Before meeting Dimple Rajesh Khanna was madly in love with the struggling actress Anju Mahendru. The couple used to live together.

After breaking up with Anju Mahendru, Rajesh Khanna met Dimple Kapadia.
