Rishi Kapoor lambasts at stars who gave Vinod Khanna's funeral a miss

Herman Weaver | 06 May, 2017, 08:14

Bollywood celebrities expressed their heartfelt grief and condolences at veteran actor Vinod Khanna's demise, who breathed his last on Thursday morning due to advanced bladder carcinoma. Khanna died of bladder cancer at 70 on April 27, 2017. Rajamouli said in his twitter message: "RiP Vinod Khanna ji".

India's home minister Rajnath Singh said "Vinod Khanna had an illustrious career in films and politics".

After a five year break, he returned to make hit movies like Insaaf and Satyamev Jayate. He was called Swami Vinod Bharti during his stay at Osho's commune. Vinod Khanna is survived by his wife and two sons, Rahul and Akshaye Khanna. Again in 1990, Vinod married for the second time with Kavita.

Penguins chase Holtby, beat Capitals to take 2-0 series lead
The Washington Capitals need a victory here in order to have any chance of winning this series, as they can't go down 0-3. As that team left the ice as the loser for a second straight game, it searched for a way to prolong this journey.


The old Bollywood hunk's funeral was attended by Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abishek, along with Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Randeep Hooda and Chunky Pandey among others, although several actors were conspicuous by their absence. The movie, a biopic on the life of Rajmata of Gwalior, featured Hema Malini in the lead role. His popular performances included "Mere Apne" (My Own), "Mera Gaon Mera Desh" (My Village, My Country), "Gaddaar" (Traitor), "Kachhe Dhaage" (Delicate Thread) and "Amar Akbar Anthony". He was four-time MP from Gurdaspur and was also a central minister during NDA government.

As the Indian film industry mourned the death of veteran star on Thursday, his Amar Akbar Anthony co-star was extremely angry to see that none of the "young" actors were present at the funeral in Mumbai.

Rahul also said that Khanna was an icon for an entire generation of cinema buffs. "My heartful condolences to the family", Rajinikanth wrote. He wrote, "As a mark of respect to our beloved Vinod Khanna the entire team of Baahubali has made a decision to cancel the premiere tonight..."
