Recently, former Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna lashed out at veteran Naseeruddin Shah for reportedly calling her late father superstar Rajesh Khanna a ‘poor actor’.
In an interview, Naseeruddin was quoted as saying, “It was the 1970s when mediocrity came in Hindi films. That’s when the actor called Rajesh Khanna joined the industry. For all his success, I think Mr. Khanna was a very limited actor. In fact, he was a poor actor. Intellectually, he wasn’t the most alert person I have ever met. His taste ruled the industry.”
Not amused by this, Twinkle then took to Twitter to share her opinion regarding this issue. Here’s what she said:
Sir if u can’t respect the living ,respect the dead-mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond @NaseerudinShah.
Even Karan Johar stood for Twinkle Khanna and took to Twitter to support her. Here’s what Kjo tweeted:
I agree with you @mrsfunnybones…due respect to seniority but this was in exceptionally bad taste and not becoming of a fraternity member..
