CM condoles Vinod Khanna's death
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday condoled the death of veteran Bollywood actor-turned-politician and former Union Minister Vinod Khanna. "I am deeply saddened by his death. He was a shining star of cinema. With his death, an era has ended. This void can never be filled. I extend my condolences to his bereaved family and countless fans. May his soul rest in peace," Banerjee said in a statement. Khanna was hospitalised over a month ago in Mumbai. He was the BJP member of the Lok Sabha from Gurdaspur in Punjab. He featured in some of the Bollywood hits like "Muqaddar Ka Sikandar", "Qurbani", "Mera Gaon Mera Desh", "The Burning Train," "Chandni" and "Amar Akbar Anthony".
