Vinod Khanna’s fans have been completely heartbroken post his recent hospitalization. He had to be admitted to the hospital due to a severe case of dehydration and said to be recuperating well since then. But what came as a blow to all cinema buffs is his latest photo from the hospital. There’s nothing wrong with the picture. The actor is seen smiling, hugging his family members and all that it says is that the actor is healing well. However, what shocked everyone was his shocking transformation since his last onscreen outing in Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s Dilwale. Vinod Khanna, one of the most handsome hunk from yesteryear Bollywood, looked unrecognizable. Age definitely hasn’t been kind to him and add to it his health issues.
The pictures went viral and they once again sparked off a debate about how media is too intrusive when it comes to a celeb’s personal life. The picture is from one of his private moments, taken at a time when he is going through a difficult time as far as health is concerned and obsessing over his frail frame and aged look doesn’t seem appropriate. More than making his look, which is a natural effect of age and an ailment as deadly as cancer, what the star needs is prayers and well wishes so that he comes back home hale and hearty.
India.com hopes that media and fans stop going ga-ga over Vinod Khanna’s latest picture and instead think of him as the hero of iconic movies like Muqaddar Ka Sikander, Amar Akbar Anthony, The Burning Train, CID, Jurm, Kranti and many such impressive projects. Khanna has always been popular among the women due to his charming personality making him one of the most handsome actors of that era. So it totally makes sense to take a moment and admire this good work and amazing looks. Here are 10 pictures of one of Bollywood’s original hunks that we are sure you’d want etched on your memory. Are you ready for a drool-worthy time? (ALSO READ: Bollywood actors then and now: Vinod Khanna, Asha Parekh and more yesteryear stars whom age has been cruel to!)
