Vinod Khanna is no more. He passed away today at the age of 70. Even as the news breaks, we can’t but help hark back at his last picture that went viral a few days back. It was 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 late 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.
It’s indeed a sad loss to the film industry.
