Yesteryear Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna, who was said to have stopped food intake and fallen critically ill last night, is hale and hearty, according to his son-in-law Akshay Kumar.
Akshay, who is married to his daughter Twinkle, visited the 69-year-old actor at his residence Aashirwad where he made Khanna wave from his balcony at the media persons waiting outside.
His estranged wife Dimple Kapadia was by Khanna's side.
"He is absolutely fine, healthy and hearty. It was all rumours that he is unwell. On the contrary, he is more than fine. The information that you people have got is absolutely wrong," Akshay told reporters outside Khanna's residence.
Earlier in April, Khanna was admitted to hospital following uneasiness and weakness.
The veteran actor, considered Bollywood's first superstar, has acted in over 150 films. Fondly called 'Kaka'by his fans, Khanna ruled the industry in the 1960s and 1970s with films like "Aaradhana", "Anand" and "Bawarchi".
Actor Akshay Kumar later tweeted, "All those spreading rumours, a humble request, get your facts right before reporting. And for those genuinely concerned & inquiring about my father in-law's health, he is doing fine now & on the road to recovery. Thank you for your good wishes."
