New Delhi : Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who is all geared up for the release of his upcoming film ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, turned emotional as he remembered Vinod Khanna and Shashi Kapoor.

While speaking at a press conference promoting his ‘Da-Bangg The Tour,’ Salman expressed his sadness on the demise of his ‘heroes’.

When asked about Vinod Khanna’s absence from ‘Dabbang 3’, Khan said, “It is really sad. Vinod Khanna sir’s health turned worse and we lost him. It is a great loss to the film industry and to his family and now Shashi uncle too is gone, which is really sad. We never thought that the heroes we worshipped, could ever leave us.”

“But still when we see their films and photographs, they are still there between us and I believe they are immortal. I still can’t fathom the fact that VK sir is gone. I believe he is still there amongst us,” he added.

Vinod Khanna passed away on April 27 following his long battle with cancer. He was 70.

Shashi Kapoor died earlier this week. He took his last breath at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai. He was 79. (ANI)
