[tps_footer]Bollywood veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah’s remark on superstar Rajesh Khanna, didn’t go down well for Twinkle Khanna. Twinkle Khanna recently slammed Naseeruddin after he addressed her father Rajesh Khanna as a ‘poor actor.
As per media reports, in an interview, Naseeruddin Shah 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.”
This statement did not go well for Twinkle Khanna and she immediately took to Twitter on Saturday night to express her unhappiness over the same. She slammed Naseeruddin Shah’s statement saying, “Sir if u can’t respect the living ,respect the dead-mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond.”
