A picture of actor Vinod Khanna in hospital is doing the rounds of social media, leaving a trail of worried comments. The photo, which we will not reproduce here, shows the 70-year-old star in hospital scrubs, looking emaciated and utterly unlike himself. Mr Khanna was taken to hospital last Friday, apparently for severe dehydration. There is, however, speculation that he is actually being treated for bladder cancer. Mr Khanna's son Rahul told news agency PTI, "Dad was hospitalised on Friday for severe dehydration. The situation was quickly brought under control, he's doing much better and the doctors are looking to discharge him soon. Our family is most grateful for the extraordinary care he's been receiving at the hospital and we are touched by all the good wishes pouring in." PTI also reported that hospital sourced said the actor was 'recovering well.'
