Akshaye Khanna Returns To Work After Father Vinod Khanna’s Demise

Vinod Khanna passed away on April 27 after battling bladder cancer and the death sent shock waves in the film industry. It was at the superstar’s funeral that his reclusive older son, actor Akshaye Khanna, made a rare public appearance.

The actor had come to the funeral straight from the sets of his upcoming film, the Sridevi starrer Mom.

Akshaye looked in deep thought as he stood by the funeral pyre with his brother Rahul Khanna.

According to reports, Akshaye was by his father’s side for the last six-seven months of his life and when Vinod Khanna passed away at the age of 70, the actor was completely shaken up.

Finally, Akshaye has decided to go back to work. On Tuesday afternoon, Akshaye was spotted at Shankar Mahadevan’s dubbing studio in Bandra. He spent a couple of hours there before returning home around 7 pm.

Akshaye will have two big releases this year after a long time. One is the thriller Mom, which stars Sridevi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. After that is Ittefaq starring Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha.

Akshaye was last seen as the antagonist in the John Abraham-Varun Dhawan starrer Dishoom, which despite receiving good reviews, tanked at the box-office due to the impact of the demonetisation move.
