Controversies of Naseeruddin Shah
In an interview in 2016, Naseeruddin Shah referred to late superstar Rajesh Khanna as a "mediocre actor". He further added that a 'poor actor' like Rajesh Khanna was responsible for the mediocrity in films in the 70's. However, the comments did not go well with Khanna's fans and family and Shah was heavily criticized for defaming a deceased superstar.
In May 2016, Anupam Kher raked up a storm on Twitter when he shared a collage of Kashmiri Pandits killed during the 1990 exodus. The tweet came in regard to the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen's 'poster boy' Burhan Wani in an encounter. Shah, however, did not like Kher's tweet and took a dig at his former co-star. He said, "A person who has never lived in Kashmir has started a fight for Kashmiri Pandits. Suddenly, he has become a displaced person." Infuriated by Shah's take, Kher then tweeted, "Shah Saab ki Jai Ho. By that logic, NRIs should not think about India at all.:)"
Shah went to Pakistan in early 2015 to promote his memoir, And Then One Day, at the Lahore Literary Festival. While addressing media and fans at the venue, Shah started talking about the animosity between the two countries. "Indians are being brainwashed into believing that Pakistan is an enemy country without being aware of the historical background. Politicians will change colors whenever it suits them. But artists from both countries must look beyond the political animosity", Shah said. This statement, however, hurt Indian sentiments. Pressure group Shiv Sena even issued a statement saying that only the near and dear ones of the 26/11 victims would understand that why there is so much hatred against Pakistan.
