“Earthquake must happen…” Akshaye Khanna talks about father Vinod Khanna’s decision to leave family and career

actor Vinod Khanna His decision to leave his family and successful career in 1975 to become a disciple of spiritual master Osho puzzled many. His eldest son Akshaye Khanna, who was still a toddler at the time, was later unable to understand his father’s decision.
