After Twinkle, Dimple Kapadia reacts to Naseeruddin’s remark


After daughter Twinkle Khanna, late Rajesh Khanna’s wife Dimple Kapadia took to the social media to express her views on veteran actor Naseeruddin’s comment on Rajesh Khanna.

Dimple Kapadia said, “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, Naseeruddin Shah tagged Rajesh Khanna as a ‘poor actor’, he said, “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”

Khanna’s daughter Twinkle strongly condemned Naseer's remark. She tweeted, “Sir, if you can’t respect the living, respect the dead. Mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond.”

fter the apology, Twinkle tweeted again on Sunday.

#All due regard toMrShah's reality,mine=a man who loved cinema& did films likeAnand,AmarPrem,KatiPatang thank u folks for all the love

Filmmaker Karan Johar also supported Twinkle Khanna#I agree with you @mrsfunnybones...due respect to seniority but this was in exceptionally bad taste and not becoming of a fraternity member..

Twinkle Khanna asked all to stop making this a big issue and asked people to relax and play Pokemon. She tweeted#This has gone far enough,can everyone please stop,we have all stated our opinions now can everyone go play Pokemon! https://twitter.com/toientertain/status/757514318149672961 …
