Veteran Bollywood actor died at age of 70 after suffering from cancer.
Khanna, who starred in Amar Akbar Anthony and The Burning Train had been undergoing treatment for cancer in Mumbai and was admitted into HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaoni couple of days back.
A recent picture showing a frail figure, rather surprised the fans of this once macho idol.

1982, at peak of his career, Khanna swapped films for spiritualism to follow Osho Rajneesh for a brief period.
He returned soon enough and grabbed limelight with Insaaf and Satyameva Jayathe .
In 1997, Khanna turned to politics in 1997 and was elected MP on a BJP ticket from Gurdasur next year. Late in 2002 he served as Union Minister for Culture and Tourism in the Aatal Bihari Vajpayee govt. Khanna lost the 2009 election but was voted back from Gurdaspur in 2014.
