Bollywood suffered a major loss today as veteran actor Vinod Khanna took his last breath earlier today. The actor was hospitalized last month for severe dehydration and was battling cancer for several years. The actor who was 70 years old had worked in more than 100 Bollywood films and was a total heartthrob in the early 90s as he had people swooning over this good looks and hit films. Khanna was also active in politics and a Member of Parliament from Gurudaspur. The actor gave up a life of glitz and glamor at the peak of his career to join the spiritual leader Osho.
