In a heartbreaking tweet, actor Rahul Khanna on May 1 recalled his father Vinod Khanna, who died of bladder cancer on April 27.
Sharing an old Black and White picture of his father, in the pic, we can see Vinod Khanna vacationing at a beach with son Rahul and Akshaye.

@R_Khanna फिर किसी के आँसू निकलेंगे और सूख जाएँगे,
ये ज़िंदगी मगर ऐसे ही चलती रहेगी अपनी रफ़्तार से,
तेरे जाने का गम बस तेरे अपने ही समझ पाएँगे

Though Rahul is fairly active on social media and even has his own blog page, this was his first twitter post since his father’s death on April 27th.
