As soon as the news of Vinod's death came, his fans and several celebs took to social media, and expressed grief at the loss of the great actor. But there are certain co-incidences that made people recall the friendship that Vinod and Feroz had shared.

While Feroz died in the year 2009, the date of his demise was same as that of Vinod – April 27. In fact, their life-span was also almost same, as Feroz had died at the age of 69, and Vinod passed away at 70. Also, Feroz had died of lung cancer, and Vinod too reportedly was suffering from bladder cancer.

Fans realised the co-incidences, and soon started talking about the duo's friendship. Vinod and Feroz had worked together in two hit movies – Qurbani and Dayavan. Both the films had showed their friendship and their pairing was much liked.

Earlier, a picture of Vinod at a hospital had created headlines, as the actor had looked very lean and weak. Soon after the picture had gone viral, rumours had started pouring in that Vinod had passed away.
