Rajesh Khanna was on a complete liquid diet, during his last days. He passed away at his Bandra residence on Wednesday morning.
Yesterday, we had reported that Kaka (as he was popularly known), was suffering from weakness and fatigue. However, reports now say that it was liver infection that led to his death.
“His liver got infected. He could not digest his food after a certain point of time. During his last days, he could not take solid food so he was on liquid intake,” said Rajesh Khanna’s close friend Vijay Zaveri
The actor had been battling health issues since April, with his health going bad to worse in May and since then. On June 21, the actor had come to the balcony of his home, Aashirwad to greet his fans, assuring them all is well.
As reports, the superstar’s last journey started today, at around 10:15 am with thousands fans crowding the streets to catch one last glimpse of the actor. The actor’s daughter Rinkie Khanna with husband Sameer Saran, wife Dimple Kapadia and elder son-in-law Akshay Kumar were seen accompanying the late actor’s body in the cavalcade.
We hear that the funeral pyre will be lit by son-in-law Akshay Kumar and grandson Aarav.
