After Twinkle Khanna lashed out at Naseeruddin Shah for calling her late father, Rajesh Khanna, a 'mediocre' actor, the veteran actor issued an apology, after his comments created a huge stir on social media.

"I’d apologise to those who took personal offence but I wasn’t talking of a particular person. I was talking about a phenomenon,” said Shah speaking to Hindustan Times

Twinkle later decided to let go off the feud and took to social media to declare her father's achievements. 

Shah had courted controversy in a recent interview to Hindustan Times, where he called Rajesh Khanna "a poor actor". 

"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,” said Shah.

This remark not only upset Twinkle but also irked ace filmmaker Karan Johar, who showed solidarity with his childhood friend.
