He had also said that he was in recovery and doing better. The actor-MP had said he was revealing about cancer only because he is in public life.

On Thursday night, the hospital issued a statement saying Vinod Khanna was admitted in the hospital with severe dehydration. “The actor was admitted to Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital on Friday with severe dehydration. He is under the care of our doctors and has responded positively to the treatment and is now stable. His family thanks his well-wishers for the good wishes and requests to respect their privacy,” was the hospital’s official statement about the health of the 70-year-old actor.
