Actor-politician Vinod Khanna has died in a Mumbai hospital this morning. He was 70. A statement from HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaon read: "Veteran actor and Member of Parliament Mr. Vinod Khanna, who was admitted to the Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital breathed his last at 11.20 am due to advanced bladder carcinoma." Mr Khanna was taken to hospital some weeks ago, ostensibly to be treated for dehydration. His son Rahul Khanna told news agency PTI days after he was hospitalised, "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."
