Actor Rajesh Khanna has died at home in Mumbai. He was 69. Mr Khanna was suffering from cancer.
Mr Khanna will be cremated tomorrow morning at 11.30am. His bungalow, Aashirwad, on Carter Road in Bandra has been cordoned off by the police.
Mr Khanna's son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar, addressed the press and asked fans to pray for the late star.
Mr Khanna had been hospitalised on June 23, when he was taken to Lilavati Hospital to be treated for exhaustion, and spent some days having tests. He was discharged just yesterday.
Worried fans had lined up outside Aashirwad on June 21 when Mr Khanna was said to have stopped eating. He was later reported to be "more than fine" by son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar. Mr Khanna himself appeared on his balcony, visibly weak and wearing dark glasses, to wave at his fans and give them the victory sign.
Mr Khanna had also been hospitalized for a few days in April this year.
