There's no doubt that Vinod Khanna was one of the most handsome actors of Bollywood. The veteran star has romanced several Bollywood beauties in his films but was never romantically involved with any of his female co-stars. However, there were reports about Vinod's affair with Amrita Singh which became the talk of the town back in those times.
On the 72nd birth anniversary of this veteran star who was once a heartthrob of millions, a love story was secretly brewing between Vinod Khanna and the beautiful diva Amrita which not many are aware. So, what happened between the two? Why they ended up separating? Let's get to know more.
In the mid-80s, Amrita was linked up with few well-known personalities like Sunny Deol, cricketer Ravi Shastri and allegedly even with Anil Kapoor. Yes, that's right! Well, it all began on the sets of JP Dutta's Batwara. Amrita and Vinod met on the sets of this film and she was instantly besotted with Vinod. But he didn't quite acknowledge her. Amrita was engaged to cricketer Ravi Shastri at that time. Friends of Ravi also warned the cricketer to watch out as Amrita had signed up for a movie with Vinod Khanna. Ravi had apparently scoffed, "You can never get Vinod Khanna even if you tried!" Amrita didn't like the rebuff and decided to take up the challenge.
During an outdoor shoot for Batwara, Amrita got the chance to woo Vinod by enticing him with attractive outfits and ladylike behavior. Things turned in Amrita's favor when they became good friends but she often felt that Vinod wasn't into her all that much.
Later, Amrita said that nothing happened between them during that schedule; but they just became good friends. Disheartened with Vinod not reciprocating to her feelings, Amrita went back to Ravi to give their relationship another shot but things didn't work out and they parted ways.
Amrita and Vinod were not in contact for several months but Amrita got another chance when the second outdoor schedule of the film in Rajasthan was announced. This time Vinod not only paid attention to her but also reciprocated to her affection. Soon, they came close and reportedly they were involved in an intimate relationship.
While some were happy seeing them together, but Amrita's mother was not as there was a huge age gap between them. She couldn't understand why her daughter fell for a man who was nearly as old as her and who was notorious for his escapades with various women.
Well, with passing time, their relationship ended soon but Amrita fulfilled her dream of acquiring Vinod Khanna!
