With Vinod Khanna passing away today after a long battle from advanced bladder carcinoma, it has been one major loss for the Bollywood Industry.
Salman Khan was very close to the late actor, and even collaborated together for Dabangg (2010) and Dabangg 2 (2012). Salman considered Vinod his lucky mascot, which Vinod confirmed in an interview back in 2013.
Salman is a very nice person to work with. A very good human being and I had worked with him even in the beginning of his career. It is a co-incidence that the films in which I have worked with him have done good business. I don’t know whether I am lucky for him, but he thinks I am his lucky mascot.
