Karan Johar gets flak for 'nepotism' again after announcing 'Dhadak'
Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is caught in the nepotism debate again and this time it isn't Kangana Ranaut who is calling him out
Karan Johar is caught in the nepotism debate again and this time it isn't Kangana Ranaut who is calling him out. Previously this year when Kangana Ranaut had appeared on an episode of his talk show 'Koffee With Karan' where she accused Karan of being the flag-bearer of nepotism in Bollywood. Karan Johar and his coterie made sure that they took jibes at Kangana's nepotism remark at every opportunity they got.
But this time, Kangana is nowhere in the picture and the filmmaker is still receiving flak for his apparent 'nepotism'. Karan Johar took to Twitter to announce his film 'Dhadak' where he will be launching Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor opposite Ishaan Khattar, Shahid Kapoor's half-brother. Ever since he announced it, social media has gone into a frenzy and have been calling out Karan Johar. He has been accused of signing only 'children of stars or celebrities'. Check out some of the hilarious tweets that were directed towards KJo.
