Vinod Khanna dying?

There were rumors on whatsapp that he's dead. But I guess he is not dead, but in hospice.

Here are my top 5 movies of Vinod Khanna.

1. Muqaddar ka Sikander
2. Amar akbar Anthony
3. Qurbani
4. Hera Pheri
5. Dayavan

I like Satyamev Jayate too.. there was a nice make out scene with Meenakshi.

Re: Vinod Khanna dying?

vinod khanna had the good looks and the robust body and fan following to become the next superstar replacing amitabh , but did not have the mental stability and discipline . he used to arrive on his sets late for shooting , unlike amitabh who was always punctual .

at the height of his popularity , vinod left stardom to join osho rajneesh in USA . so he sacrificed his career for mental peace---not a man cut out to be superstar . he wasted five prime years of his life in the rajanish ashram and temporarily abandoned his wife and kids . this caused his divorce with his wife , thus destroying his marital life....though he rebuilt it by marrying again .

when he came back , he got two back to back hit movies ( satyamev jayate and insaaf ) thus showing his star power . but then he began drinking heavily and arrive on sets drunk and in no condition to shoot---so he was removed from many films .

of course , in the seventies and early eighties he was a hugely bankable star and gave many hit movies . was an all rounder---could do both romance and action movies and also villain roles . acting capabilities were very decent .

Considering what all he might have done in Rajnish Ashram, may not be really a waste

Amitabh was after money, fame and control .. Khanna was after spirituality. He was a successful MP as well, somebody who without any noise just did his work.

Amar Singh revealed some time back how spineless Amitabh is.. couldn't stand up for his parents when Jaya humiliated them shamelessly. Hardly the sign of a superstar.

I recall when he set out for his political journey, he made some promises to the people of his constituency, delivered all those, then made more promises for next term and asked public if they saw his promises being completed to vote for him.

You don't abandon your wife and children ( and eventually get divorced ) for spirituality. And arrive drunk on sets .

arriving drunk on sets.. may be hearsay, I never heard that.

You don't know a thing about Osho and spirituality.. better not embarrass yourself with google knowledge, it's not as easy as copy paste on defense forums.

It was in all the film magazines at the time vinod khanna made his comeback in 1987 . Not one but all of them---movie, star and style , stardust , filmfare . Vinod coming drunk on sets and producers removing him from films. My mom used to subscribe to a library and i used to get to read the magazines.

Vinod abandoned his wife and kids and was screwing a German converted to Hinduism in osho ashram . Later when he abandoned osho and her , this German woman gave interviews to all film magazines saying how vinod had betrayed her .so much for spirituality.....

Re: Vinod Khanna dying?

anyway , i am not on a anti vinod khanna tirade . it takes a lot to achieve what he did ; reaching second number position in an industry as tough as the film industry is no mean achievement . i was just saying that vinod could have become superstar but he lost out on that chance because of some flaws in himself . the presence of those flaws does not mean that whatever he achieved was small . he was no doubt a big star , which is why we are discussing his health in the first place .

Re: Vinod Khanna dying?

I'm just trying to have fun, I haven't even watched many of his movies, nor a fan of his acting. The thing you don't get is .. that nobody following any political party is completely one way or the other.

I'm amazed how you wrote a whole judgement on him just by the mention of his name, and compared to Amitabh.

Re: Vinod Khanna dying?

I always regarded him as a good actor, but never remembered him for any particular films. Only Amar Akbar Anthony comes to mind.

I hope he's still alive and gets well soon

do you know that in the last 2 or 3 films vinod acted in before he went to the rajneesh ashram , he was paid more than amitabh was paid at that time . speculation had already started that he may replace amitabh as superstar . but he gave it all up for osho !! obviously that fact will come up in a thread about vinod .

Re: Vinod Khanna dying?

My response to this on a whatsapp group on cross checking facts at least led to hoaxes and blind forwarding stopping there

His movies I liked best are,

1. Lagaam
2. Hatyara
3. Khoon Pasina (rocked as Tiger)
4. Aan Milo Sajna (the bad guy)
5. Mere Apne (superb movie... and a beautiful song)
6. And of course, Achanak
