Released in the year 1980, blockbuster movie ‘Qurbani’ was the Bollywood’s biggest grosser that year earning Rs. 6,00,00,000 at the Box Office after its release.
Though the movie was an adaptation of the 1972 Italian film The Master Touch, its songs over the decades ushered a revolution as it remained India’s chartbusters till the mid-80s with songs like “aap jaisa koi” and “Qurbani, Qurbani” which became a cult classic.
While the movie has many records and titles to its name, it now also has the ironic title of having it’s three leading stars namely Vinod Khanna, Feroz Khan, and Amjad Khan dying on the same date…27th.
While actor Vinod Khanna died on April 27th, 2017 in Mumbai due to bladder cancer, his close friend and co-actor Feroz Khan died exactly on the same date – April 27th back in 2009.
What is more, to an extent even the cause of death was similar as Feroz Khan too died of cancer (Lung Cancer).
Meanwhile, the third actor from the movie to die on the same date was actor Amjad Khan who passed away back in 1992 due to Congestive heart failure.
While Amjad just like the other two died on 27th, he passed away on July 27th, 1992.
Rest in peace legends, even though you three are no longer with us, you continue to live in the hearts of your fans through your work.
