Akshaye Khanna and Rahul Khanna’s mother and Vinod Khanna’s ex-wife Geetanjali Khanna passed away at 70. She breathed her last on Saturday night. She was suffering from heart ailment disease. She complained of uneasiness and breathed her last at her Alibaug residence.

"The two sons along with their mother keep visiting their farmhouse in Mandwa. Geetanjali and Akshaye came around 11 on Saturday morning. It was in the afternoon when she complained of uneasiness. She was taken to a local doctor, who prescribed her some medicines," a police source from Mandwa revealed.

After medication, Geetanjali went to sleep between 9 to 10 pm. When Akshaye checked on her, he found that her body temperature was very low.

 A source added, “Akshaye called Rahul up and both of them, then, took her to the civil hospital, where she was declared brought dead."

On Sunday morning, after performing the postmortem at the civil hospital, the body was handed over to the family. "It appeared to be a natural death, but doctors have preserved the viscera to ascertain the exact cause of demise," the official said.
