Late Bollywood actor Vinod Khanna's first wife Geetanjali passed away on Saturday at the family's farmhouse in Raigad district Maharashtra informs the police. She was 70.

Geetanjali along with her actor son Akshaye Khanna were visiting the farmhouse at Mandva to spend the weekend. On Saturday evening, she complained of uneasiness following which she was rushed to a hospital in Chondi village. The same was informed by the Mandva police station in-charge, assistant police inspector Meghna Burande.

The inspector further detailed that after the treatment at the hospital, Geetanjali and Akshaye returned to the farmhouse. The actor took her mother to the bedroom and insisted her to take rest. When he returned after some time, he enquired with a care-taker about his mother and then went to her bedroom where he found her unconscious, the official said.

He then called doctors again at the local hospital and also his brother-actor Rahul Khanna in Mumbai.

On doctor's advice, he took his mother to the Alibaug-based civil hospital where she was declared dead,

Burande said.

On Sunday morning, after performing the postmortem at the civil hospital, the body was handed over to the family. "It appeared to be a natural death, but doctors have preserved the viscera to ascertain the exact cause of demise," the official said.

"We recorded Rahul Khanna's statement and have not found anything suspicious," she said, adding that the last rites of the deceased were performed by the family members at Alibaug on Sunday afternoon.

Veteran Bollywood actor Vinod Khanna, who had also served a BJP MP, died in April last year at the age of 70.

He had divorced Geetanjali in 1985. In 1990, he got married again to Kavita, with whom, he had a son, Sakshi, and a daughter, Shraddha.
