Nepotism rocks: Karan Johar, Saif take a dig at Kangana Ranaut


Kangana Ranaut raised the issue of nepotism in the industry and she mainly pointed at Karan Johar for launching and casting his favourite stars in the industry. Karan and Kangana entered into a Twitter brawl over the issue and it created a lot of hullaballoo. Industry divided into two over the issue of nepotism.

At IIFA 2017, hosts Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan took several digs at Kangana Ranaut through their act on stage. While they chanted "Nepotism rocks, nepotism rocks..." on loop, KJo yelled "I'm here because of my father, Saif is here because of his mother, and Varun is here also because of his father. What's the big deal?" 

Saif and Varun then sang ‘Bole chudiyaan Bole kangana’ from Johar’s blockbuster film ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...’

But the director quickly reacted, saying, “Kangana nahi bole toh achha hai (It’s good you didn’t say Kangana).”

When Kangana Ranaut appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee with Karan’, she had referred to Johar as “the flag bearer of nepotism”, which didn’t go well with the director.
