A few days ago, Karan Johar made headlines for slamming Kangana Ranaut over the latter’s nepotism jibe on Koffee With Karan.  Speaking at an event at the London School of Economics, Johar had asked Ranaut to stop acting like a victim or leave the industry.  Little did the filmmaker imagine that these comments would come back to bite him. However, the backlash has not come from Ranaut, but a Twitter user, Shreya Ila Anasuya who has slammed the filmmaker in a series of tweets.

It all began with this tweet:

Anasuya didn’t mince words in her next tweet. She not only accused Johar of nepotism, but also slammed the director for not being able to handle Ranaut’s jibe. 

The next tweet was more vicious with the girl reminding Johar that he is no saint.

The last few tweets underlined the alleged Bollywood biases, urging the filmmaker to look at his own privileges.


While Johar's comments asking Ranaut to stop being a victim or leave the industry may be a tad harsh, it's unfair to overlook that he has launched over a dozen directors who had no godfathers in the industry. Along with star kids Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, Johar also gave a break to an outsider like Sidharth Malhotra in Student Of The Year (2012).

Despite the plethora of tweets, Johar has so far not responded to the girl. The filmmaker is currently basking in the glory of becoming a father to twins through surrogacy.
