Twinkle Khanna lashed out against veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who said that her late father Rajesh Khanna was responsible for bringing “mediocrity” in the Hindi film industry in the ’70s.
In a recent interview with the Hindustan Times, Naseeruddin Shah 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, the elder daughter of Rajesh Khanna, who took to her Twitter and slams Naseeruddin Shah.
