Veteran actor Vinod Khanna (70), who had been admitted to HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaon, Mumbai, breathed his last at 11.20am on April 27.
The actor’s dead body reached at his house in Malabar Hill. Vinod Khanna’s funeral will be held at banganga crematorium today.
While many are aware of Vinod Khanna’s special appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale as SRK and Varun’s character’s father, but do you know one of Vinod Khanna’s last films is still playing in theatres.
Yes, Vinod Khanna’s last film “Ek Thi Rani Asi Bhi” was released (April 21), 6 days before his death. The much-delayed film is a biopic on the late Jan Sangh-BJP leader and Rajmata of Gwalior, Vijayaraje Scindia.
The film is based on a biography of Vijayaraje Scindia by Goa Governor, Mridula Sinha.
The film stars BJP MPs Vinod Khanna and Hema Malini in lead roles, while Amruta Fadnavis (wife of Maharashtra CM, Devendra Fadnavis) is the lead playback singer.
The film was supposed to hit the screens in 2008 but finally saw the light of the day on April 21, 2017.
