Now that Karan Johar is a father to twins, he has a lot to do with lesser sleep, which means people can get on his nerves easily. Like a lot of people, it seems that he’s just had about enough with Kangana Ranaut complaining about everything and anything in the industry. He’s not happy at all with the statements that Kangana made on Koffee with Karan. He’s happy with the fact that he was polite enough to take it all and not snap at her then. He seems to regret his decision now since he read how people applauded Kangana’s behaviour on the show. Like Kangana, KJo too is in denial because he thinks Kangu is wrong and he doesn’t promote star kids. He missed the point. He said it himself with his own mouth how he thought Anushka Sharma and Kangana would not make it because they are not pretty enough to be leads in films. Also, the fact that he is going to launch a bunch of star kids soon does make Kangu’s statement true. Karan brought up the fact that he helped a lot of directors get their first films through Dharma and they are not from the industry. It’s quite clear how he favours Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra. Even Varun Dhawan know and accepted this. But all that doesn’t mean that Kangana should go on and on about how much she suffered before she got good roles. She’s not the first actress in this situation and won’t be the last. Let’s hear it from KJo himself in his rants below. At this rate, Kangu is KJo’s second most hated woman, after PC of course.
Karan Johar gives it back to Kangana Ranaut
Karan on having Kangana on his show
She was my guest and I had to hear what she said. She has the right to have an opinion but when she says ‘flag bearer of nepotism’, what I want to say is I don’t think she has understood the entirety of that statement because what is nepotism? Am I working with my son, daughter or nephew? What about those 15 film makers who are not from the film industry? No one will talk about Tarun Mansukhani, Shakun Batra, Shashank Khaitan or a Punit Malhotra, who is a costume designers nephew, who came from no film background. You give these people a film career and I think that is the reverse of nepotism but that of course one would not get credit for. As far as actors are concerned, I have launched just two of them i.e. Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. Sidharth Malhotra was just 1/3rd of them and had nothing to do with the movies. So I really didn’t get what she meant.
Karan on being the movie mafia leader
What does she mean by ‘movie mafia’? What does she think we are doing? Sitting here and not giving her work? Is that what makes us mafia? We do that by our choice. I do that because may be I am not interested to work with Kangana and that does not make me movie mafia, it makes me a man with an opinion.
Karan on how Kangana should just leave Bollywood
I appreciate that she had a great perspective and everyone lauded her for coming on my show. People said ‘she gave it off to Karan’ and I would say of course, but I was gracious enough to keep everything. I cut none of it and I do edit so much of stuff from the show. I was like let the world see her opinion. I gave her the platform to speak and now this is my platform so here I am speaking what I want to. I want to conclude by saying I am done with Kangana playing the woman card and the victim card. You can’t be a victim at every point of time who has a sad story to say as to how you have been terrorised by the bad world of industry. If that’s the case, leave it.
