Remembering the supremely talented handsome superstar Vinod Khanna on his 72nd birth anniversary today.
Vinod Khanna was one of the most bankable actors of Bollywood. He has given back-to-back hits as a solo as well as in multi-starrer films and is considered one of the rare actors who gave a tough competition to Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor and many others.
Vinod Khanna debuted in Sunil Dutt’s 1968 film Mann Ka Meet directed by Adhurti Subba Rao, as a villain, which was remake of Tamil film Kumari Penn.
Vinod Khanna has appeared in approximately 141 films and rose to fame with his negative characters. The actor, who is known for his distinct style and persona, is one of those few actors who won fame and fans with negative roles but eventually went on to become one of the leading romantic heroes.
It is indeed a tragedy that a man who entertained millions of us for almost 4 decades has gone to the beyond after battling from cancer. Vinod Khanna will surely be missed.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
