Mumbai: `Aashirwad`, the iconic bungalow of Bollywood`s first superstar Rajesh Khanna, has now been renamed as `Vardan Aashirwad`.

"Yes...The name of the bungalow has been changed. But I cannot reveal the reason behind it. It is personal," Khanna`s estranged wife Dimple Kapadia told reporters.

According to sources close to the actor the name of the bungalow has been changed due to actor`s last wishes. It is to do with the vastu.

Interestingly, when Khanna bought this bungalow from actor Rajendra Kumar, it was called `Dimple`, as it was the name of Kumar`s daughter. Though Khanna decided to continue with the same name, it was later changed to `Aashirwad`.

The bungalow is also likely to be turned into a museum in keeping with Khanna`s wishes.

The actor, fondly called Kaka, died last month at the age of 69.
