Vinod Khanna has passed away, 27 April 2017 click here
In an ideal world, that picture of Vinod Khanna in hospital, which went viral on social media, shouldn’t have seen the light of day.
It’s obviously a very private photograph of the actor that unfortunately got leaked online.
I don’t think there is any doubt, that neither Vinod Khanna, nor any member of his family would have wanted that photograph out in the public. But let’s face it, we live in a far from ideal world and that photograph was shared, retweeted and Whatsapp-ed with perfunctory messages of shock and sympathy.
If you do admire the veteran actor, you should remember him by his hunky, macho photographs that made women go weak in the knees through the 70s, 80s and 90s. After all, Vinod Khanna wasn’t nick named ‘sexy sanyasi’ for nothing.
Some people even started writing his obituaries. Now, putting all rumours to rest, the hospital where he was being treated issued this statement:
“Mr. Vinod Khanna was admitted to Sir HN Reliance Foundation hospital on Friday with severe dehydration. He is under the care of our doctors and has responded positively to the treatment and is now stable. His family thanks his well-wishers for the good wishes and requests to respect their privacy.” Take heed, people.
Here’s wishing the sexy sanyasi and one of Bollywood’s original hunks a speedy recovery.
