Naseer apologises after Twinkle slams him for his ‘poor actor’ comment

WT24 Desk

Not one to take things lying down, actor Twinkle Khanna has slammed veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah for calling her late father and Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna a “poor actor”,IANS reports.

In a recent interview to Hindustan Times, Naseeruddin had 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.”

Not happy with the 65-year-old star’s opinion about her late father, Twinkle took to Twitter on Saturday night to express her disapproval. “Sir if you can’t respect the living, respect the dead — mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond Naseerudin Shah,” Twinkle wrote. When contacted for his reaction to Twinkle’s disapproval, Naseeruddin apologised. “I’d apologise to those who took personal offence but I wasn’t talking of a particular person. I was talking about a phenomenon,” he said.
