When death united ‘Qurbani’ stars Vinod Khanna and Feroz Khan


Apart from starring together in films like ‘Qurbani’ and ‘Dayavan’, Vinod Khanna and Feroz Khan have one more thing in common. Both died on the same day, 8 years apart.

But, the cruel co-incidence does not end there. The suave actors died of the same disease. While Khan had lung cancer, Khanna succumbed to bladder cancer.

Khan and Khanna had memorable on-screen bonding. The ‘Qurbani’ title track is a cult classic, and they were also seen together in ‘Shankar and Sambhu’. In ‘Dayavan’, too their chemistry was highly appreciated.

Khanna was last seen in ‘Dilwale’, with Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, and Varun Dhawan in 2015.

A famous dialogue from ‘Qurbani’ says ‘Ishwar ka doosra naam dosti hai’. Surely, their death on the same day is an uncanny tribute to their friendship.
