Actor Irrfan Khan says he was shocked to see the veteran actor looking so frail in the picture, which went viral on social media today. The Piku actor has wished speedy recovery to Vinod Khanna.
A purported picture of Khanna today surfaced online where he was seen in the hospital uniform along with his son and wife. The actor was seen visibly weak in the photo. (Disclaimer: India TV has not verified the picture, which could be fake. There is no confirmation of the same from the family.)
"My good wishes and prayers with him. I hope he gets well soon. If needed, I'll donate one of my organs to him. I think he is the most beautiful person in the entire industry," Irrfan told reporters at the trailer launch of his upcoming film "Hindi Medium".
"I saw his photo today and I was shocked. I pray to God for his good health," he added.
Though Khanna's son Rahul had earlier confirmed that he was recovering, the actor is still in the hospital with no news of his discharge yet.
Recalling Khanna's work, Irrfan said, "I have seen all of his films. I still remember his 'Khoon Pasina', 'Mera Gaon Mera Desh'. He is one of the most handsome man, extremely beautiful.
Khanna was hospitalised in HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaum.

Is that Vinod Khanna cancer picture for real? The only actor my mom's ever been fond of. And I broke this horrible news to her today.— Sulky (@Jerk_Magnet) April 6, 2017
Not just Irrfan, many Bollywood celebrities have expressed shock and concern over Vinod Khanna’s health. Novelist Shobha De tweeted: Vinod Khanna, we love you! Get well soon. You remain the original macho hero for millions of fans.
