Actor and sitting BJP MP from Gurdaspur, the charismatic Mr. Vinod Khanna had a miraculous escape, earlier this week, when his aircraft (belonging to Air India) was forced to land at Bhunter, the domestic airport near the picturesque Kullu-Manali valley in Himachal Pradesh. The emergency landing was done as the weather in the hill state was not fit for flying. Vinod Khanna was on a visit to his constituency, Gurdaspur, Punjab and was on way to Pathankot from Delhi. Pathankot is the nearest airport to Gurdaspur.
Due to climatic disturbances, Vinod Khanna was forced to spend around one hour and fifteen minutes at the Bhunter airport. The veteran actor enjoyed the beautiful Kullu valley and its scenic beauty and mingled freely with the staff of the airport and spoke to them about their problems. Later, he left for Pathankot as the weather improved.
Well, more importantly, we are relieved that the second biggest star of the mid seventies and early eighties (after Amitabh Bachchan), and also the father of talented actors like Akshaye and Rahul Khanna is safe and sound!
