Actor Akshaye Khanna had earlier revealed that the popular song “Ruk jaana nahin” from the 1974 film “Imtihan” was the favourite song of his father and late actor and politician Vinod Khanna, who died in April 2017.
Back in 2017, Akshaye, along with late actress Sridevi had appeared on the popular children singing reality show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs Season 6” to promote their film “Mom“. Both the actors were touched when they heard contestant Dhroon Tickoo sing the song “Ruk jaana nahin”, which was picturised on Vinod Khanna.
“This song was my father’s favourite song and you sang it so beautifully. I am so glad that I could see you performing this song live as it was absolutely mesmerising,” Akshaye said.
Sridevi felt the same, and had said: “This is one of my favourite songs too and you sang it with so much soul and passion. I’m completely touched. You are a great singer, keep up the good work.”
