Akshay Kumar has thanked followers on Twitter for their sympathies on Rajesh Khanna's death.

The actor is married to the late legend's daughter Twinkle Khanna.

He tweeted: "Thank you everyone for your kindness and sympathy during our time of loss. Your thoughtfulness at this time of great sorrow is truly a comfort. Knowing you all are here helps.

"I always wanted to witness my father-in-law's superstar stardom during his hay days, thanks to you all I did, giving him a dignified funeral that he deserved. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers."

The 69-year-old actor had reportedly been battling against cancer since April.

Kumar announced his father-in-law's passing in his Mumbai residence to the media on July 18.

Amitabh Bachchan is the latest industry figure to pay tribute to the star, who made over 160 films in his four-decade career.

Producer and fellow actor Aamir Khan also commented that the actor will be remembered with "love from every Indian".
