This is a javascript problem. Thing is that django is completely server side,
the client knows nothing of django and it's functionality, even when using
ajax, this is still all javascript on the client side. Wtih that said
window.close() in the 'popup' you've opened with the form would work.
Becareful that you don't do this in the main window, you're not allowed to, it
only works with a window that has a parent and you opened with javascript.
Safety first.
