As a mark of respect to veteran actor Vinod Khanna, who passed away earlier today, the producers of Bahubali have decided to cancel the Thursday night premiere of the film.

The 70-year-old actor was battling cancer for a long time and breathed his last at a Mumbai hospital this morning. He was recently hospitalized after his health took a backseat.

Karan Johar took to Twitter to extend his prayers to the actor’s family and fans. He wrote, ” His screen presence is unparalleled even today…his super star swag is what we grew up on….RIP #VinodKhanna …thoughts and prayers….”


The producers had planned a grand premier for the film. Just like the film, the event was also planned with grandeur.

People, including Bollywood stars and sports personalities, have been condoling the death of the four-time Member of Parliament, who ruled the box office in the 80’s.

This statement has come from the entire team of Rajamouli and Bahubali, “We are very sad to lose our favorite actor Vinod Khanna. In the honor of our beloved late actor, ‘Bahubali: The Conclusion’ premiere is being canceled.’ 3SS Rajamouli said from his tweet too, “RiP Vinod Khanna ji. As a mark of respect to the legendry actor,  premieres of Baahubali2 in Mumbai are cancelled.”
