As tweets and messages poured in on Twitter to mourn the demise of Vinod Khanna, actor Rishi Kapoor pointed out a very strange co-incidence. In his tweet, he said, “Friends Vinod Khanna and Feroz Khan died the same day 27th April. Khan sahab passed away 27th April 2009 Bangalore.”

Feroz Khan (69) passed away on April 27, 2009. He was suffering from lung cancer. Vinod Khanna (70) too died today (April 27, 2017) as he was suffering from bladder cancer.

Feroz Khan was not only Vinod Khanna’s co-star but he also directed him. Both were known to be thick friends and they first worked together in the 1976 film Shankar Shambhu, in which they played main role for the movie. Their biggest box office success was the 1980 film Qurbani, directed by Feroz Khan that starred Zeenat Aman, Amjad Khan, Aruna Irani and Kader Khan. Later, Khan also directed Vinod Khanna in the 1987 film Dayavan starring Madhuri Dixit.
