Karan Johar is known for launching star kids but he was never slammed much for it until actress Kangana Ranaut called him the ‘flag-bearer of nepotism’ and she chose Karan Johar’s talk show for making this statement when she appeared on Koffee With Karan with his “Rangoon” co-star Saif Ali Khan.
Since then, they both have not left any chance of taking a jibe at each other and recently KJo did it once again when he attended YouTube FanFest Mumbai 2019. He appeared on the chat show Titu Talks with comedian and YouTube personality Bhuvan Bam.
Here’s what Bhuvan asked KJo,
“Optimism ka matlab hota hai positive sochna, pessimism ka matlab hota hai negative sochna aur nepotism ka matlab hota hai apno ke baare me sochna. Aapko is shabd se kyon pyaar hai?” (Optimism means positive thinking, pessimism means negative thinking and nepotism means thinking about your loved ones. Why do you love this word so much?)
Karan Johar’s reply was targeted at the “Manikarnika” actress but he made sure that he didn’t take her name.
This is what he replied,
“Mujhe ye subject pyara nahi hai, kisi aur ko ye subject bohat pyara hai aur kya bolu main, hum bolega toh bologe ki bolta hai, toh bolne ka kam maine unko saunp dia hai, kaam karne ka maine le liya hai.” (I don’t love this subject, someone else really loves this subject and what else should I say? I have assigned the task of talking to that someone and I do my job.)

Karan Johar must be quite happy as his “Kesari” starring Akshay Kumar has performed great at the box-office while Kangana is also cloud nine after the success of her movie “Manikarnika”. However recently she has been slamming many Bollywood celebs on various matters. What’s more, she also said that if “Manikarnika” doesn’t get a Filmfare award, it will be a question on their credibility.
Do let us know what you think of this nepotism debate.
