Congratulations to Kangana Ranaut for adding one more enemy to her list. Karan Johar has written her off as "forever victim". Karan opened up about Kangana accusing him of ‘nepotism’ on his chat show, during his recent interaction at an event at the London School of Economics.
On Koffee With Karan, Kangana had called Karan “a snooty, flag-bearer of nepotism, who was intolerant to outsiders in the film industry.” She also hinted that he is running a ‘movie mafia’. To which Karan retorted saying " When she says ‘Flag bearer of Nepotism’, I just want to say her, I am glad she knows what it all means. I don’t think she has understood the entire meaning of the term. What is nepotism… am I working with my nieces, nephews, daughters, cousins? And what about those 15 filmmakers, who are not from the film industry, who I have launched and who did the movies. That we’re not going to talk about! Tarun Mansukhani, Puneet Malhotra, Shakun Batra, Shashank Khaitan… they all come from no film background. You give these people film careers and they have a platform to stand on and that’s the reverse of nepotism,”
When asked why did he let her remarks be aired the filmmaker explained "“She was my guest and I had to hear what she had to say. She has a right to have an opinion".
Lashing out further, the 44-year-old filmmaker added: “I’m done with Kangana playing the woman and victim card. I am done! You cannot be this victim every time and have a sad story to tell about how you’ve been terrorised by the bad world of the industry … leave it.”
