Rishi Kapoor slams 'actors of this generation' for skipping Vinod Khanna's funeral

Posted May 09, 2017

Vinod Khanna, a dashing Bollywood actor turned politician, has died of cancer, a hospital official said. Karan had written, "His screen presence is unparalleled even today...his super star swag is what we grew up on.... RIP #VinodKhanna... thoughts and prayers". The actor was 70-year-old and hospitalized for quite some time.

He made his debut in 1968 with Mann Ka Meet and went on to win numerous awards, including the Filmfare award for best supporting actor for Haath ki Safaai and the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999. He is survived by wife Kavita Khanna and his four children, Rahul Khanna, Akshaye Khanna, Sakshi Khanna and Shraddha Khanna.

But Khanna returned to cinema in the late 1980s, and courted success again with films such as Insaaf and Satyameva Jayate.

Yesterday, Vinod Khanna lost his life to cancer and everything came to a standstill, primarily Bollywood.

At the height of his career, Khanna suddenly took "sanyas" in 1982 to become a disciple of Bhagwan Rajneesh, the founder of Osho, and lived in Pune for five years.

We wonder if this tweet is directed towards Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt with who he's sharen spaces in films like Dilwale, Dabangg and Ek Aur Ek Gyarah.

Well, Vinod Khanna will definitely be missed a lot.

In a message to his son Rahul Khanna, the President has said, "I am deeply saddened to learn of the demise of your father, Shri Vinod Khanna".

Close friend and former co-star Amitabh Bachchan, was promoting Sarkar 3 at an event and rushed to the hospital, leaving the promotions midway when he heard about the news.

Vinod Khanna is a sitting Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Gurdaspur district of Punjab.

"Please accept my heartfelt condolences and convey the same to the members of your family".
