  11 Iconic Performances Of Vinod Khanna

 Vinod Khanna, the original macho man of B-town, passed away this morning at the age of 70. The actor worked in more than 100 movies. The actor was every girl's heartthrob back then and one couldn't deny that he was indeed a charming actor. From playing an angry young man to an emotionally devastated person, he could pull any role flawlessly.

He was one of the most brilliant actors of the 70s and 80s. He started out with small and negative roles, but soon became a superstar of ‘Bollywood' and then there was no looking back.

We list out some of his terrific movies that make him a magnificent actor:

Amar Akbar Anthony

There is no one in India who hasn't heard about this movie. Released in 1977, this movie brought in a refreshing blend of emotions, drama, action, comedy and love. ‘Amar Akbar Anthony' became the biggest grossing films in the box-office that time. And people loved Vinod Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan's on-screen chemistry. This film did change Vinod's life for greater things.

Similarly, they liked his angry avatar in ‘Wanted'. Vinod Khanna played a vital role in both the films and the movies would have been incomplete without his presence.



We bet there is no one who wouldn't remember this movie from 1988. After all, the passionate kiss that Madhuri Dixit and Khanna shared on-screen made everyone's jaw drop. The steamy song ‘Aaj Fir Tum Pe Pyaar Aya hai' became everyone's favourite and still is popular among people.


Muqaddar Ka Sikandar

While many actors during that time preferred playing the lead, Vinod Khanna didn't mind playing a parallel lead if it was a good role. ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar' made big bucks at the box office. Though it was Amitabh's film, Khanna's acting skills left a deep impact on the audience, giving depth to the storyline. This particular role of his gave him an opportunity to explore various shades of his acting skill, opening various doors in the industry for him.


Mere Apne

This was Khanna's first classic film. Directed by Gulzar, this film made him explore a very different genre, unlike his other movies.



This was the film that made him a superstar. Khanna's brilliant acting, great music tracks, amazing script and Feroz Khan's direction made it one of the biggest grossing films of the 1980s.


Hera Pheri

This was yet another movie where the duo of Khanna and Amitabh won millions of hearts. The actor was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor category as well.



Vinod Khanna's acting in this film was critically acclaimed and one couldn't agree more. This was his second film with Gulzar where he played an army man and soon discovers about his wife's adultery with his best friend. This shatters him and in anger, he kills them both. His brilliant performance leaves you stunned.


The Burning Train

This was one of those movies that had a brilliant story but failed miserably at the box office. With all the big stars, this film failed to appeal the audience. However, Khanna's performance was applauded.



One could never have enough of the magical duo of Amitabh and Vinod. ‘Parvarish' saw Khanna play a character with shades of grey and he nailed this one as well.
