As the Indian film industry mourned the death of veteran star on Thursday, his Amar Akbar Anthony co-star was extremely angry to see that none of the "young" actors were present at the funeral in Mumbai.

Kapoor, who is known for mincing no words on his social media posts took to the micro-blogging site and slammed the new generation stars for not turning up to pay their last respects at veteran actor Vinod Khanna's funeral.

Calling it shameful, Kapoor tweeted, "Shameful. Not ONE actor of this generation attended Vinod Khanna's funeral. And that too he has worked with them. Must learn to respect."

Angry and disappointed, Kapoor expressed that he'd share the same fate after he's gone.

Calling them "chamcha", Kapoor also criticised a number of people who turned up at a late night party thrown by actor Priyanka Chopra.

He also clarified in one of his tweets that his wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir Kapoor were out of country and hence missed the actor's funeral.

Having arrived on the scene in the late 1960s, Khanna soon made his a mark in the film industry, featuring in iconic films such as Amar Akbar Anthony, The Burning Train, Qurbani, and Mere Apne. He acted in a total of 146 movies and won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Haath Ki Safai in 1975.
