It is Akshaye Khanna’s 43rd birthday today (March 28) and to mark the occasion, his elder brother Rahul Khanna shared a beautiful picture from back in the day. Both the brothers and beaming as they get a picture clicked with their late father Vinod Khanna. The veteran passed away last year after losing his battle with cancer and this is Akshaye’s first birthday without his dad around. The caption that Rahul wrote with the picture read, “A blast from the past on baby bro’s birthday! #Akshaye #SiblingRevelry (sic).”

There is also a woman seen in the picture and looks like she is Rahul and Akshaye’s mother and Vinod Khanna’s first wife Geetanjali. Here’s the throwback picture which is sure to fill your hearts with happiness and make you forget for a moment that the legend Vinod Khanna is no more amongst us.

Akshaye Khanna was last seen in Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra’s Ittefaq and in Sridevi’s Mom prior to that. The actor made his acting debut in 1997 with Himalay Putra stole hearts with his smile and a killer cleft, just like his heartthrob father. He has films like Border, Aa Ab Laut Chalen, Dil Chahta Hai, Hulchul and Humraaz to his credit and will be next seen in The Accidental Prime Minister. Border (ensemble cast) and Dil Chahta Hai (Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan) deserve special mention here since despite having so many brilliant actors to match up to, Akshaye succeeded in standing out.

He has proved that he is a versatile actor with his choice of roles but fans and filmmakers love to see him in intense characters. He has kind of created a niche for himself when it comes to playing a cop onscreen or investigative officer. But be it comedy or negative roles, Akshaye has proved his mettle and we hope, the actor’s upcoming films present him in a different avatar.
