Karan Johar’s Sweet Wish For Ishan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor Proves He Is The King Of Nepotism
2017 was no-doubt a very controversial year for B-town, be it the protest against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie Padmaawati or Sonu Nigam calling Azaan as “force religiousness”. But the controversy that created a lot of smoke has to be “Kangana-Karan nepotism controversy”.
The controversial queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut created yet another controversy by her fearless attitude when she bashed Karan Johar on his own chat show “Koffee With Karan” by calling him the “Flagbearer of Nepotism.”
This not just sparked a debate about the pervasiveness of nepotism but also grew into a bigger controversy when at an award function Karan Johar and actors Saif Ali Khan & Varun Dhawan made fun of Kangana and chanted “Nepotism Rocks”. Once their act attracted extensive criticism, they apologized for the same later. The debate then further divided the Bollywood industry into two parts.
However, Karan Johar kept saying that he is not the “flag bearer of nepotism” but who has proved that he is not just the flagbearer of nepotism but is the “King of nepotism” in Bollywood.
Karan Johar has introduced many star kids to the Bollywood industry and the biggest examples are Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan with the movie “Student Of The Year”. But when the actress Kangana Ranaut made some fearless statements it bothered the director-producer, Karan Johar, who is all set for making “Student Of The Year 2” with the actors Tiger Shroff (son of Jacky Shroff), Ananya Pandey (daughter of Chunkey Pandey) and Aditya Seal

and the movie “Dhadak” the Hindi remake of the 2016 Hit Marathi movie “Sairat” which will star Ishaan Khatter (brother of Shahid Kapoor) and Janhvi Kapoor (Daughter of Sridevi & Boney Kapoor).
Seems like Karan Johar is fully living up to his title.
People on the social media went insane when Karan Johar revealed the first poster of ‘Dhadak’. Many people even questioned Karan Johar to launch strugglers instead of star kids. But it seems that the nepotism remarks are now not working anymore on Karan Johar.
And not just that he proudly says that he feels responsible for the star kids that he launching through his movies and gets very protective when it comes to them and takes them under his wing to keep them away from negativity.
The director-producer has also shed some “Gyaan” for his new babies that he is all set to launch, Ishaan & Janhvi through his radio show, he said:
“It’s a new year which means new beginnings and time for new relationship goals. Dear Jhanvi and Ishaan, you are going to embark on a new journey of stardom this year. You will face many firsts in 2018 from promotion to paparazzi to link-ups and troll to fame and failures. You are going to see it all. Through all of this, I just want to remind you to not take yourself too seriously and absorb every new experience because these initial days will never come back again. Jhanvi, Ishaan your best qualities are that you all are still students. That you both really stand by your beliefs and the fact that you really don’t take yourself as seriously as I sometimes think you should. I love the fact that you are still vulnerable and innocent, please hold onto that.”
Isn’t the speech that he made was quite ironic? He himself on various occasions have mocked and trolled so many and now he is giving the speech about the same.
