The Indian film industry has come in support of the ailing Bollywood star and former member of Rajya Sabha Vinod Khanna after his picture went viral on social media. According to the latest reports, Salman Khan who played Vinod Khanna’s son in Prabhu Deva’s film ‘Wanted’, paid him a visit at the HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Girgaum on Friday.

“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.
