Twinkle Khanna has hit out at veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who said that her late father Rajesh Khanna was responsible for bringing “mediocrity” in the Hindi film industry in the 1970s. 

Twinkle, 42, the elder daughter of Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, tweeted, “Sir if you can’t respect the living, respect the dead – mediocrity is attacking a man who can’t respond.” 

In a recent interview, Shah had said that 70’s was the time when mediocrity came in Hindi films and also when Rajesh Khanna joined the industry, who according to him was a “poor actor”.
