Actors Rahul Khanna and Akshaye Khanna are bereaved. After a year of actor Vinod Khanna passing away, due to an advanced stage of bladder cancer, there is news that his ex-wife and Rahul and Akshaye’s mother Geetanjali Khanna also passed away on December 15, due to a heart ailment. A journalist tweeted the news "Gitanjali Khanna, ex-wife of the late Vinod Khanna, and mother of R_Khanna and Akshaye Khanna has passed away.

It is being said that Geetanjali breathed her last at a farmhouse in Alibaug that she used to frequent with her sons Akshaye and Rahul. Apparently, Geetanjali’s health deteriorated last night and by the time a doctor arrived, the lady passed away, a report in Lokmat revealed.
Vinod Khanna met his first wife Geetanjali Taleyarkhan during their college days in 1968 and the sweethearts got married in 1971, after which they welcomed two sons Rahul and Akshaye. The pair’s marriage, however, ran into troubled waters in 1985 and they separated. While in the US, Vinod met Kavita Daftary (now Kavita Khanna) and they eventually married, welcoming two children- a son and a daughter.
In such trying times, we offer our heartfelt condolences to Geetanjali's family and may her soul Rest in Peace.
