Karan Johar seems to have found himself embroiled in yet another debate about nepotism post Sushant Singh Rajput's demise. The filmmaker has been subjected to immense trolling online and it has in fact, lead to him being away from social media, as many might have noticed. Over the last couple of days, he has also taken the step to unfollow a couple of people on Twitter and now, he barely follows a lot of people on Twitter. However, as it turns out, there seems to be more to it.

In a rather unexpected turn of events, he has decided to exit the MAMI board due to the effect the online lynching has had on him. If reports are to be believed, he has already tendered his resignation from the board of the esteemed film festival and in fact, he is not giving the decision a second thought as the resignation letter has been mailed to director Smriti Kiran. In addition, the reports also suggest that this decision of his stems from the fact that he did not receive any support from anyone in Bollywood amid the ongoing nepotism debate and hence, he is upset about it.

In addition, the reports also stated that the chairperson for the MAMI film festival, Deepika Padukone did try to convince him to rethink his decision. However, they all went futile as Karan seems to have made up his mind about this. We tried reaching out to the Karan johar's team regarding the same, and the story will be updated once we receive a response.

I don't want to see Ranveer Singh, Janvi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt in Thakt. While I really despise Kareena's mean girl attitude her acting is good but I still cannot justify watching it. Why can't Aishwarya be in it? Replace Alia/Janvi with Kiara Advani or Pooja Hedge or Tapsee or let's see if Kangana might do it. That would be a way to save it and have a balance of the talented nepos and non nepos but the talented one's.

Anonymous 1 week ago

Very well said. But, the problem is, it's a culture. And in gay culture sadly bitchy behaviour, gossip, mocking outsiders, just saying nasty things, showing no remorse for being an arsehole is what most gay people come across. I guess it probably is their feminine side, but they can easily replace these with positivity and good vibes only if they choose to. For example, karan johar uses a lot of sexual double meaning references and it's always PUN intented. That's why there's a problem with the culture. He has also for the last 20 years imposed his gayship on all of India. I mean, Karan you live in Bombay, not jharkhand, why force your sexuality on people. Again, that's probably Indian culture where you must get married by a certain age. Karan has polluted a lot of brighter minds and sadly that's the trend Nepo kids follow. This needs to end. I mean, do these Nepo tards not have their own personalities?

In her hay days Aish also said she was too busy working to party with Karan. She knew to be on guard. One can always make time if they want to party with someone. C.

Well, I am surprised to see so many people complaining about nepotism and later going back to their office work and facing the same issue. Nepotism exists everywhere. What we need is to support those who have been effected by it. Blaming KJ, Khans and Kapoors is just a easy respite to pent out anger. Understanding the mental health well-being, genuinely caring for people who are facing depression or bullying is what needs to be spoken about. Lynching KJ in public forum is not going to help. Raising awareness of mental health and well-being is more important today. RIP SSR.

Nepotism and bullying is everywhere, when you try to listen the struggling stories of other persons in different field they can explain you. We also face a lot of social issues in our starting days still faces sometime bt now we become strong day by day. So same as ours a lot of people in the whole world who are suffering from a lot of social issues which we can't complaint to anybody it's just mentality of people which cannot be change by others.

It’s evil for a single man (a gossip he-queen) to go about trying to convince every member of his Nepo gang each time on his Koffin with Karan that Ranbir Kapoor is the best actor, and Alia Bhatt is the best thing that has ever happened to Bollywood. Each of his buffoons kept ranting what they were told each time on the show with the same lame questions. Others end up falling low each time on the list. Who in his right senses does that? Only the almighty dumb KJo... Good riddance!

My problem is not KJo favoring his Nepo shits, what angers me is KJo using his ‘audience-made’ influence in jeopardizing the careers of the struggling/upcoming actors that are fighting harder than their already ‘entitled’ counterparts, and going extra miles in trying to shun them out completely from Bollywood just bcoz they are doing well. That is unacceptable ... kudos the general paying public for all our efforts to drag this man down. Let’s all teach him to go back to being human, and doing what is right for one n all.

Every industry has its dynamics. A lot of it is the interpretation of media. A lot is also owing to the family managed business concept. Let us not allow our words to get the better of us, as we ask ourselves, is the anger we show the quality of Sushant? He was not just shaant, he was su-shant: a calm that is of a superior kind. If you all loved him so much, keep him alive by keeping his name and quality alive. They say naam ki mahima is greater because a person lives through his name even after he has gone. Gandhi, Martin Luther, Ambedkar, .... are examples. Coke also runs down Pepsi, and vice versa. Ariel rubbishes Surf and vice versa .... it is part of the business of competition. Yes, true, here the brand is a human being.... but please ask your heart, will Sushant the messenger of peace, wish ill on anyone? Like the Corona Virus, the hatred being spewed is another growing virus. Life is about letting go, and letting God. Come guys....c'mon. Let us do this as a peace-offering to Sushant.

This is how privileged people behave. Someone lost their life here & people are outraged about the fact that it’s yet another outsider. And here, he is angry about not getting online support. How does people’s online outrage against him & nepo kids even affect his life in reality??? Yes, the online outrage may affect his ego and may embarrass him but practically how is it affecting him livihood??? However, him & other Bollywood production houses/mafias supporting nepokids and snatching movies from outsiders have real and practical implication on the livelihood of the actors who are outsiders!

Great!!! He and his gangs should be removed from all public platforms.He is not only a bought Nepotism in the Bollywood industry but also racial & discrimination (Most of his production house movies only shows punjabi's culture , south Indian,other north Indian and north east Indian cultures tho exist hei nahi karta...why???)
