Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah’s shocking reaction on Vinod Khanna’s Health! – The legendary actor from Bollywood film industry Vinod Khanna is currently being admitted to the HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaum on Friday night. His son revealed the reason behind the actor being hospitalized is due to severe dehydration. But in the recent picture which went viral on the internet, the actor looked very frail and weak, almost unrecognizable.
Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah who is also a colleague of Khanna was asked about how he felt about the actors’ health especially about the viral picture.
Naseeruddin Shah was recently present at the launch of a book by film activist P.K. Nair Shah, who has also starred alongside Khanna in movies like Rihaee in 1988 also starring Hema Malini, was asked about Khanna’s frail health.
He reacted dismissively “Relevant questions only” and walked away.
With this Shah’s reaction, it can be owed to the fact that there has been no official confirmation by the Vinod Khanna’s family.
Naseeruddin Shah read extracts from the book, and Dungarpur, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Govind Nihalani, Shyam Benegal also shared their thoughts on this occasion.
Nasseruddin Shah termed it as “A special book that begins from the magical experience of Nair-saab watching his first film when he was eight; his incredible efforts in rescuing the early works of Phalke and his obsession for collecting and preserving films for posterity. I think it is wonderful that Film Heritage Foundation is keeping his memory alive by publishing this book as his contribution to Indian cinema is immense and should not be forgotten.”
Film Heritage Foundation was established in the year 2014 which is dedicated in supporting the conservation, preservation and also the restoration of the moving image and developing interdisciplinary educational programs that will use films as an educational tool and create awareness about the language of cinema.
