Naseeruddin Shah apologises for remark on Rajesh Khanna. Twinkle still furious

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 25 July 2016, 11:25 IST

Veteran Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah ruffled feathers this weekend, when he called the late Rajesh Khanna a poor actor.

Khanna's daughter, actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna, and other celebrities took to social media to slam Shah's comments, saying that it was in bad taste.

Following the outrage, Shah apologised for his comments. He said: "I apologise to those who were personally offended, my intention was not to attack him (Rajesh Khanna)."

However, it appears as though Twinkle is in no mood to forgive Shah. She tweeted:

The row began when Shah told a leading daily that Bollywood was no stranger to mediocre talent. He said:

"It was the 70's 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."
