Former film star Rishi Kapoor, in a series of tweets, has slammed the 'actors of this generation' for not attending Vinod Khanna's funeral last evening.

Khanna passed away at the age of 70 early Thursday morning, after battling cancer.

Kapoor, 64, who worked with Khanna in films like Amar Akbar Anthony, Eena Meena Deeka and Chandni, described the absence of the young generation of stars at the cremation as 'shameful'.

 

 

The actor also lashed out at the celebrities who were present at actress Priyanka Chopra's on Wednesday evening but did not attend Khanna's funeral.

Kapoor even gave a clarification as to why his family couldn't make it to the funeral.

 

Director Mahesh Bhatt, who directed Khanna in "Jurm", however, told PTI he did not attend the cremation as he thought 'it was a private funeral'. "This was one funeral, I would have wanted to attend but I couldn't because I was initially told by an insider that the family wanted a private funeral. It was quite late in the evening that I got to know the press was also invited. Otherwise, nothing could ever hold me back from attending his funeral."

Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek, Randhir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Kabir Bedi and Danny Denzongpa were among those who attended the funeral along with Gulzar, Subhash Ghai, Ramesh Taurani and Ramesh Sippy.
