Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt was a close friend to late actor Vinod Khanna.

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt was known to share a close bond with late actor Vinod Khanna and he recently reminded everyone of the good times both the artists shared in the good old days. Mahesh Bhatt captioned the picture as, “One friend can change your life”

Bhatt was instrumental in taking Vinod to the Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh ashram in the US. It sure changed Vinod Khanna’s life when he was at the pinnacle of his acting career.

In his interviews after Vinod’s death of April 21, Mahesh said, “ My earliest memory of Vinod is when I was the third assistant director and the production manager on the legendary Raj Khosla’s Mera Gaon Mera Desh. He had just hit the landscape with Mann Ka Meet. I still remember the shot in which, Vinod – who played Jabbar Singh – comes on a horse into a deserted village. He dismounts from his horse and walks menacingly towards a door and kicks it open. The shot was okayed, when Khosla turned to us and said, “This boy is going to be a star. He will set the nation ablaze.”

Vinod Khanna, died in the Sir H.N Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Center in Girgaon Mumbai. He was suffering from bladder cancer.
