Independence Day: Karan Johar celebrates freedom by returning to social media post nepotism row and wishes all
Advertisement

Independence Day is a day that marks the freedom of our nation from British rule. Back in 1947, the British rule came to an end on August 15 and India woke up to freedom. Today, on the occasion of Independence Day, Filmmaker Karan Johar also joined the nation in celebrating freedom by making his return to social media after a long hiatus amid nepotism backlash. Karan had been away from social media after the massive backlash against him post Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely death. It sparked off a nepotism debate and the filmmaker was called out by netizens. 

Since then, Karan had kept away from social media. However, on Independence Day, he returned from his hiatus and wished everyone on the important day. Taking to Instagram, Karan wrote, “To our great nation....a treasure trove of culture, heritage and history.... #happyindependenceday ... JAI HIND.” The filmmaker shared a photo of the Indian tricolour and wished everyone in the country on the country’s Independence Day. In between his break from social media, a few weeks back, Karan had commented on Ranveer Singh’s live Instagram video and netizens noticed the same. 

Soon, celeb comments began to pour in Karan’s Independence Day post to wish him on occasion and to celebrate India’s day of freedom. Neha Dhupia, Rohit Saraf, Janhvi Kapoor and others also commented on Karan’s post. 

Take a look at Karan Johar’s wish on Independence Day:

Meanwhile, amid the lockdown, the filmmaker has been spending time at home with his kids Yash and Roohi. Earlier, he used to share videos and photos of his kids on social media and kept netizens entertained with their adorable shenanigans. However, in the past two months, the filmmaker kept away from social media. Recently, after the release of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, netizens called the filmmaker out again as the Indian Air Force wrote to CBFC to raise objections over certain scenes and dialogues that portrayed it in a negative light.

Anonymous : Looking forward to seeing how kjo & co play this one. The “I’m depressed feel sorry for me” story didn’t really work in getting the audience drunk enough to digest the rubbish that was going to try and be put down their throat in time. What move next kjo - no point having a game plan unless you have audience willing to buy into the plan.maybe the realisation that all the money in the world cannot make people do what you want them to do will come and all the nonsense will stop. Perhaps find a scapegoat in kangana or will that backfire? Decisions, decisions.

Stop with the pretence and apologise about everything and move on in a more humble way. Btw auctioning your wardrobe especially event related costumes to raise money for the less needy during pandemic would have shown you as a human rather then talking about outfits and events when filming your kids. it would have also been great for your kids to be involved and learn about philanthropy.

India has several 100s of languages but his songs have Punjabi, Urdu lyrics as if these 2 are the only languages in India. Yuck! our society would be a better place without Karan's garbage movies.

Anonymous : First before wishing on Independence Day you owe an apology to the IAF for portraying them bad in your movie They are the real heros of our nation not reel like you and your dumb and good for nothing mafia gang. You called SSR "FLOPSTAR" See the immense love he is getting all over the world and he won millions of heart and see your image in their eyes, even foreigners are calling you out. Being a hero in real life is appreciated rather to be on the big screen, having a great and generous is needed to be loved and respected by people if you would have not bullied others and showered them with love and respect you would not have been received these brutal trolls. Just ask yourself once from your inner soul how shameless and inhumane acts you have done. SSR was a big name and was very popular but their are several who commit suicide because of this unacceptable behavior, of course SSR was murdered by baby penguin and rhea but there are really who do so....Why their life isn't valuable I accept Nepotism and it's not wrong till an extent because stopping real talented outsiders for your place is what people are actually complaining. Their are really very talented outsiders who really can act well than jhanvi ananya and alia ......

We INdians are easily brainwashed by Kangana's theory of film industry full of bad people. OUr film industry has gained world recognition and love because everyone collectively worked hard and don't let all that love destroy by Kangana's hatred message? Kangana has escaped the heat and crowd of mumbai to the hills and there many insider film industry that don't have the hills luxury. She built all the wealth, love, power and fame from the very film industry she wants to bring down. Stop Bullying film industry!!!
