Nasiruddin shah, who is known very well for his rude but fair(?) words, seems to throw himself in a controversy yet again. the senior actor who had just crossed 65 has recently uttered some very unpleasant comments about Bollywood superstar Late Rajesh khanna in an interview.
The actor said “Nothing has changed in Bollywood. It is the same as it was 50 years ago. The photography and editing is better but the subjects are as puerile as they were in the 70s. In fact, it was the 70s 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.”
It was no shock that Actor Twinkle Khanna, Rajesh Khanna’s daughter, got very offended by the senior actor’s comments about his father and slammed him through Twitter.
“Sir if u can’t respect the living ,respect the dead-mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond @NaseerudinShah ”
Several other celebritys like Karan Johar have shown their support to Twinkle through Twitter already. It is to be kept in mind that Rajesh Khanna gave so many hits like ‘Anand’, ‘Kati patang’ , ‘hathi mere sathi’, to Bollywood. He won 3 filmfares for best actor role and nominated 14 times for the same category. thus, Nasiruddin shah calling him a poor actor is really undesirable.
