A photo of Vinod Khanna in a frail condition has gone viral on social media platforms. According to reports, the former Bollywood star has reportedly been battling cancer for quite sometime and the life-threatening disease has made him complete unrecognisable.
“Dad was hospitalised on Friday for severe dehydration. The situation was quickly brought under control, he’s doing much better and the doctors are looking to discharge him soon,” Rahul Khanna told PTI on Wednesday.
Khanna, who is also a BJP MP from Punjab’s Gurdaspur, is currently undergoing treatment at Mumbai’s Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre.
“Our family is most grateful for the extraordinary care he’s been receiving at the hospital and we are touched by all the good wishes pouring in,” he added.
Ever since the photo of an incredibly weak Khanna went viral, fans have been wishing him speedy recovery. The former Bollywood superstar has been trending on Facebook, Twitter and Google News.
