We are familiar with Akshaye Khanna and Rahul Khanna, but we have heard relatively less about their youngest son, Sakshi, who bears the closest resemblance to his father, Vinod Khanna.
Vinod Khanna, one of Bollywood’s most handsome actors, had an illustrious career in the film industry. However, his sons have not been able to attain the same level of fame and popularity as their father. While Akshaye Khanna continues to be well-known among the masses, captivating viewers with his performances, Rahul Khanna has struggled to make a significant impact in Bollywood despite appearing in a few films. On the other hand, Vinod Khanna’s youngest son, Sakshi, has never entered the big screen. Nevertheless, Sakshi is content with his life away from the spotlight. Let’s take a look at some pictures of Sakshi that will make you wonder why he hasn’t pursued a career in films.
Sakshi Khanna is the youngest son of Vinod Khanna, born to Vinod Khanna’s second wife, Kavita Khanna. He shares a step-brother relationship with actors Akshaye Khanna and Rahul Khanna. Sakshi also has a younger sister named Shraddha Khanna.
Sakshi Khanna’s planned Bollywood career that never took off
According to a 2014 report, Sakshi Khanna was on the verge of making his Bollywood debut under the direction of Milan Lutharia. Sakshi had previously assisted Lutharia on the film “Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara.” In an interview with Etimes, Milan Lutharia mentioned his plans for Sakshi’s debut, stating, “Sakshi is incredibly talented, and the role is quite intricate. He will need to do a lot of preparation over the next few months.” Sakshi had also worked as an assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the film “Bajirao Mastani,” and there were speculations that Bhansali had an interest in directing Sakshi’s debut film, although it did not materialize.
Like Father Like Son
Sakshi Khanna’s Instagram profile features numerous photos that evoke memories of the late actor. Several netizens have commented on his pictures, emphasizing the striking resemblance he bears to his father, Vinod Khanna. One user wrote, “Hu ba hu apne papa jese” (You are just like your father). Another netizen added, “You look so much like your father.” A different internet user remarked, “You look like Mr. Vinod Khanna, the most handsome Bollywood star ever.”
Where is Sakshi Khanna now?
Many netizens are curious about why Sakshi hasn’t made his debut on the big screen and what he is currently up to. It is worth noting that Sakshi is the owner of a production company called Jugaad Motion Pictures. Together with his friend Dheer Momaya and Ukrainian filmmaker Daria Ghai, Sakshi has ventured into the realm of film production. They have supported independent films such as “Namdev Bhau in Search of Silence” and “Three and a Half.” Sakshi seems to have taken a different path in the film industry, focusing on the production side rather than pursuing acting as his primary career.
Sakshi Khanna’s heartfelt tribute to Vinod Khanna
We conclude Sakshi’s profile with an endearing childhood photo that he shared on his Instagram. In the caption, Jr. Khanna wrote, “Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped into the next room.” He further added, “I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.”
