Recently, in an interview, Shah said that when Rajesh Khanna joined the film industry in 70’s, it was the time when mediocrity came in Hindi Cinema. According to Naseeruddin Shah, Rajesh Khanna was a ‘poor actor’.
Twinkle’s friend and filmmaker Karan Johar has joined hands with the actress-turned-author and criticised Shah, saying his comments were in “exceptionally bad taste”.
I agree with you @mrsfunnybones…due respect to seniority but this was in exceptionally bad taste and not becoming of a fraternity member..
