Vinod Khanna, the handsomest man to ever grace Bollywood films bid us good-bye on April 27. He was a very private person and that was evident from the fact that he did not issue statements about his illness in what can now be described as his dying days. People close to him describe him as a thorough gentleman and that is an upbringing he has given to his sons, Akshaye and Rahul. Both of them are very private as people though they have a large fan following, especially Rahul Khanna whose good looks and wit have charmed us time and again. Post the death of his father, he shared a few snaps of his childhood with the superstar and one can see that he was a fabulous father.
After a picture of his father, Akshaye and him frolicking on a beach, the Actor told shared a snap where he is holding a newborn Rahul in his arms. He captioned it writing, “You showed me how to be a gentleman and yet fight to the finish like a warrior. Bye Dad. 1946 – 2017.” Truly, the actor conducted himself with great dignity in his public life, where he was an actor and a politician. He also fought his war with the dreaded disease with resilience till it got better of him. (Also Read: Vinod Khanna suffering from cancer? Hospital authorities refuse to comment)

Vinod Khanna who starred in a number of hit films like Muqaddar Ka Sikander, Amar Akbar Anthony, Qurbani, Dayavan, Chandni and more recently Dabangg and Dilwale left Bollywood at the peak of his movie career to become a disciple of Bhagwan Rajneesh. When he came back, his innings wasn’t as successful. It also broke his marriage with Geetanjali, who is the mother of Rahul and Akshaye. The VJ cum actor has often spoken about feeling like an outsider in the movie business. In an interview to Open Magazine, he once stated, “I sort of equate myself as being an outsider with inside access. All we knew is that our Dad was an actor and people knew who he was.” This very much sums up how Rahul and Akshaye spent his formative years away from the limelight. The demise of his father seems to have made Rahul very emotional and we are getting to see such vintage pictures of the actor with his sons.
