New Delhi, July 18: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K Advani on Wednesday condoled the demise of Bollywood icon Rajesh Khanna.
“I convey my condolences to his family. People will remember him for his work in films,” Advani said.
“There is no doubt about this, he was the greatest actor of Bollywood. Everyone was so fond of him,” he added.
Khanna passed away after a prolonged illness earlier today. He was 69.
The actor, who enjoyed unprecedented adulation from his fans across the country, was rushed to Lilavati Hospital twice in the past one month due to exhaustion and weakness.
Khanna’s health started deteriorating since April this year when he stopped taking food and complained of exhaustion and weakness.
Khanna, who married actress Dimple Kapadia in 1973, has two daughters Twinkle and Rinki. Twinkle, an interior decorator and a former film actress, is married to actor Akshay Kumar. (ANI)
