Peshawar, the Pakistani city where Vinod Khanna was born, will hold an event in his honor. The birthplace of the veteran Bollywood actor will pay him a tribute. They said that the Cultural heritage Council will organize an event in his remembrance.

Peshawar’s renowned film historian, Muhammad Ibrahim Zia said,

“Khanna was born in Peshawar on October 6, 1946 at Sardar area in Cantonment jurisdiction. His father Mehr Chand Khanna was a prominent businessman and former Minister in Congress.”

The author of “Peshawar the Funkar” highlighted the actors from Peshawar working in the film industry for over hundred years.

Zia met him in India in 2014 as a part of a delegation. He further added

“During our meeting with Khanna, he was very happy over the reunion with people of his birthplace Peshawar.”

During the delegation, Zia offered him a copy of his book

“In his autograph, Khanna extended his good wishes to people of Peshawar and expressed the desire of visiting his ancestral city. He was also in the delegation which met Khanna in 2014. Khanna wanted to visit Peshawar to see the area where his parents and forefathers lived. He had sent a request for his visit to Pakistan, but could not succeed”

According to him, he was a very generous gentleman.

Khanna passed away on Thursday morning after battling cancer for many years.
