Actor Akshay Kumar said that he would not comment on actor Naseeruddin Shah’s remarks about his late father-in-law Rajesh Khanna, as Shah has already apologized.
“It’s ok. Everything is over now. He (Naseeruddin Shah) apologised. Let’s move on,” Akshay said in an interview. “He apologised and it’s over. There is nothing, so don’t try to get something from me so that you can write something,” the actor added.
Earlier in July, Shah said in an interview: “It was the 70’s when mediocrity came into 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.”
Akshay, however, said that the matter should be buried now. “Let the industry be together. When someone has apologized, you should be gracious enough to say it’s over,” he added.
Rajesh Khanna’s daughter Twinkle, wife Dimple and actor Om Puri also criticized veteran actor’s comments.- CINEWS
