Actress-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna has slammed veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah for calling her late father and Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna a “poor actor” and blaming him for mediocrity.
Not happy with the veteran’s remarks about her late father, Twinkle took to Twitter on Saturday night to express her disapproval. She tweeted Sir if u can’t respect the living ,respect the dead-mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond. With a list of Khanna’s milestone films.
Naseeruddin reportedly quoted as saying: “It was the 1970s when mediocrity came in Hindi films. That’s when the actor called Rajesh Khanna joined the industry. In fact, he was a poor actor. Intellectually, he wasn’t the most alert person I have ever met.”
