MUMBAI: Bollywood Actress Twinkle Khanna has condemned veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah. He told that late actor Rajesh Khanna was a "poor actor".
In an interview to a newspaper, Naseeruddin said, "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."
Twinkle Khanna expressed her anger on the social media account.
"Sir if you can't respect the living, respect the dead — mediocrity is attacking a man who can't respond Naseerudin Shah," Twinkle wrote.
A well known actor Rajesh Khanna made his debut in 1966 with movie Aakhri Khat. He also gave several hits like Anand, Haathi Mere Saathi, Kati Patang, Bawarchi and Aradhana. He was honoured with the title of “The First Superstar of Indian cinema” at Dada Saheb Phalke Academy Awards in 2005.
