Veteran actor Vinod Khanna passed away at the Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital. The actor was aged 70 and was admitted to the hospital a few days ago. It was reported that Vinod was suffering from extreme dehydration but a picture from the hospital made way for rumours that he was suffering from cancer. Now after this death, there are reports that the star was actually suffering from cancer.
