A few weeks back, Vinod Khanna fans were left disheartened when a picture of him in poor health went viral. It was difficult to see the heartthrob of Hindi films in such dreadful condition. When people started enquiring about the reason behind his degrading health, doctors refused to give any comment on it.
The actor was hospitalized in the first week of April due to severe dehydration but was later said to be stable and responding positively to treatment. However, on Thursday morning, Veteran star and politician Vinod Khanna took his last breath. The actor, who was reportedly suffering from cancer died at 70.
Regarded as one of the most handsome actors, Vinod Khanna, is survived by his wife Kavita Khanna, sons Rahul, Akshaye and Sakshi, and daughter Shraddha Khanna.
As soon as the news of Vinod Khanna’s death came in, his friends, well-wishers, industry figures, politicians, and admirers paid respects on Twitter.
Heartfelt condolences on the passing away of one of the most charismatic actors #VinodKhanna ji.
Om Shanti !
