Announcing the news of the birth of his baby Vanraj, Rajesh had written, “It’s a great feeling, but this journey has been anything but smooth. Many months ago, we were ecstatic when the doctor revealed that Vandana was carrying twins, but during her third month, she was diagnosed with a condition and had to be hospitalised. A few months later, it came to light that the growth of one of our babies was very slow and finally, we lost him. The situation was such that we needed to go in for immediate delivery to save the other baby. Thus, our son was born three months before he was due. Vandana’s surgery did not go smoothly and she took a long time to heal; also, our baby was put in NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit) and was there for two-and-a-half months. The mother and son struggled throughout the journey, and finally, our little Krishna arrived home on Janmashtami. This is the most beautiful gift bestowed on us by the Gods.”
Rajesh Khattar married Shahid Kapoor’s mother Neelima Azim in 1990, however, they got divorced in the year 2001. While Shahid is born to Neelima Azim and Pankaj Kapoor, Rajesh Khatter and Neelima Azim have Ishaan Khattar together.
