Bollywood lost one of the most iconic actor Vinod Khanna on Thursday (April 27) morning. The ailing actor had been hospitalised for a brief period, and generally had not been keeping well for a long time.
The legendary actor breathed his last at 11.20 am due to advanced bladder carcinoma. The last rites of actor was performed at Worli crematorium in Mumbai.
While his hospitalization in March was said to be due to a case of severe dehydration, fans and media were taken aback when pictures of a frail looking Khanna started going viral. The pictures came as a shock and the world finally understood how serious the veteran actors’ condition is.
However, regular updates from the family, especially elder son Rahul Khanna and the hospital, assured fans that their hero was recuperating well but that day never dawned!
Intriguingly, Khanna’s son Rahul, on April 23, had posted a picture of the view of the hospital on his social media account. He wrote, ‘One more Sunset’. In hindsight, he was perhaps trying to hint at the seriousness of his father’s condition and his failing health.
Now when we look at it, it seems like a telling post. Perhaps, Rahul was trying to hint about his father’s death or is about to die.
His followers, knowing that he is going through a difficult phase, had tried to do their bit by sending prayers and strength his way, to tide through these tough times. While there has been no confirmation as yet, some reports state that the yesteryear hunk had a case of cancer relapse which further affected his health.
Vinod was survived by his wife Kavita Khanna, sons Rahul, Akshaye and Sakshi, and daughter Shraddha Khanna. Vinod Khanna death left many of his close friends from B-town shell shocked.
