The entire nation is understandably grieving to the death of one of the most talented and good-looking actor, Vinod Khanna. He was admitted to the Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital on 31st March due to the acute complications arising out of severe dehydration.

Few days back, a family picture of Vinod Khanna also surfaced and went crazily viral on the Internet in which he looked terribly ill. There were also claims that the former actor was suffering from cancer. But Vinod Khanna’s family rubbished such rumours and said that the actor was doing well. However, according to the hospital’s official statement, the 70-years-old former actor and Member of Parliament was suffering with Bladder Cancer.

The actor was a true charmer. Especially his looks. When Sunil Dutt saw Vinod Khanna the very first time, he was so impressed by his charismatic looks and with the fact that he was from Peshawar (Pakistan), that he promised to launch him. He fulfilled the promise and launched Khanna in 1968 with Man Ka Meet. Such was the magic of his looks.

He was an appreciated villain in his initial years of films but followed on to become an eminent face in the then in trend, multi-starrers. With his exceptional acting skills, he made sure that he was noticed. His on-screen pairing with Amitabh Bachchan was super-duper hit as they delivered blockbusters like Amar Akbar Anthony, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar and Hera Pheri. However his film career was a true roller-coaster like ride since he took a five years break for his guru Osho Rajneesh.

He also was a heartthrob among girls! His big and deeply captivating eyes, worth-to-die for smile and perfectly broad masculine body skipped the hearts of millions. Well, have a look at the pictures of young Vinod Khanna and relive the good old days.

May his soul rest in peace!
