Dimple Kapadia Reacts To Naseeruddin Shah’s Comment On Rajesh Khanna!

Not too long ago, Naseeruddin Shah had this to say about Amitabh Bachchan: “He’s extremely gifted, but he’s a commodity. He’s not an actor.”

Now, with his comments on Rajesh Khanna’s “limited” and “poor” acting and his “mediocrity,” he has Khanna’s daughter Twinkle up in arms.

She tweeted, “Sir, if you can’t respect the living, respect the dead. Mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond.”

Her mother, Dimple Kapadia, Rajesh Khanna’s wife chose to bear upon the matter by saying, “I just want to say that while I understand that everyone has the right to their own opinion, the man’s career and legacy speak for him. I don’t need to over-emphasise his accomplishments or what he has done for Hindi cinema. You know them, I know them, millions of his fans know them as well.”


In an interview: “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”


“I apologise to those who were personally offended. My intention was not to attack him but to talk about how a certain phase in history affected the course of Hindi cinema.”
