Karan Johar
The Dharma Productions head Karan Johar has been hitting headlines for the last few weeks for many reasons but the one that kept him on the edge of the knife is for nepotism. It all started when Kangana Ranaut openly called KJo the flag bearer of nepotism while promoting her film on Koffee with Karan season 5. While Karan has defended himself in many ways of not practicing nepotism but the recent video that has surfaced online tells a whole new story altogether.

This is make Kangana Ranaut feel really very happy




In this 49-seconds clip from an old interview with Anupama Chopra, Karan Johar can be seen openly admitting being guilty of nepotism which would make Kangana feel really very happy about it.

Here's what she had said,



"Out of the lot, I picked up a chubby girl. I saw something. And maybe the fact, I can't lie, that she was Mahesh Bhatt's daughter also excited me. I don't know. It could be. Right now I'd like to say no, but it may have been a very strong sublayer, and that is nepotism, and we are guilty, I am guilty. I'm definitely guilty. Would I have cast Varun Dhawan if he wasn't David Dhawan's son? Because he was David Dhawan's son, he was on my set as an AD, and that's why I spent enough time to understand that he can be a movie star. There are a lot of factors in this country that determine movie stardom and I think true talent is the least of them. It's sad. It's truly tragic. Would I have been a filmmaker? I'm a producer's son. I had no experience, I was an assistant on one film. My father had the platform to give me, therefore I'm a filmmaker. So if I go through any struggle, I deserve it."


And now the tables are turned, Karan Johar might want to go back to his home and hide his face under the pillow for a few days now.
