Salman Khan visits ailing Vinod Khanna in hospital

Superstar Salman Khan visited veteran actor Vinod Khanna on Thursday night to check on his health. Vinod Khanna is undergoing treatment at the Sir HN Reliance Foundation hospital, where he was admitted due to severe dehydration.

Vinod Khanna has played the role of Salman’s father in his blockbusters ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Dabangg 2’. The ‘Sultan’ actor too considers Vinod his lucky mascot, the veteran actor-turned-politician had once said in an interview.

Yesterday, a picture of a very week looking Vinod Khanna in hospital dress went viral on internet and there were reports that the ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ actor was suffering from bladder cancer. A hoax of the actor’s death also spread.

However, the hospital soon cleared the airs and stated that Vinod Khanna was suffering from severe dehydration and not cancer, and his health was showing improvement.

The official spokesperson of the hospital, Tushar Puniya, issued a statement saying, “Mr. Vinod Khanna was admitted to Sir HN Reliance Foundation hospital on Friday with severe dehydration. He is under the care of our doctors and has responded positively to the treatment and is now stable. His family thanks his well-wishers for the good wishes and requests to respect their privacy.”

Vinod Khanna will next be seen in the film named 'Ek Thi Rani Aisi Bhi' which also stars actress Hema Malini.
