Legendary actor Rajesh Khanna sadly lost his battle to ill health when he passed away in the early hours of today (Wednesday 18th July) in Mumbai, with daughter Rinke Khanna and wife Dimple were by his side.  His other daughter Twinkle Khanna & son-in-law Akshay Kumar had too been to see him. The iconic actor had only been discharged from hospital a day earlier.

The 69-year-old actor was admitted to the hospital on April lst 2012 after he complained of weakness and fatigue. He was discharged after about three or four days. Khanna was then admitted again on June 23rd and spent two weeks there. He was hospitalised for a third time on July 14th due to weakness and low blood pressure. He was discharged from hospital on Tuesday 18th July, but sadly passed away at home a day later.

The actor is hailed as India's first superstars after 15 consecutive solo superhits between 1969 and 1972.

It’s a sad day in Bollywood as the industry and fans mourn the death of one of the biggest superstars in the Indian film industry ever.  

RIP Rajesh Khanna….thoughts and prayers from all the Ikonz Team going to his family.
