Vinod Khanna is currently flashing in the news columns and for the saddest reason ever! The yesteryear actor is currently recuperating from a fatal disease and that made him weak and pale. But his latest picture just went viral that has made the hearts of his fan sink. And why not? He was perfectly fine when we last saw him in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dilwale. This extreme transformation of the handsome actor is indeed crazy and heart wrenching. If reports are to be believed, he is suffering from bladder cancer, however, no confirmation has been given by the hospital or the family.

Talking to the media, his son and actor Rahul Khanna told, “Dad was hospitalised on Friday for severe dehydration. The situation was quickly brought under control, he’s doing much better and the doctors are looking to discharge him soon. Our family is most grateful for the extraordinary care he’s been receiving at the hospital and we are touched by all the good wishes pouring in.” Also Read - Rajesh Khanna's Death Anniversary: Former Partner Anju Mahendroo Remembers 'Kaka ji' With a Throwback Picture
