Kangana Ranaut recently responded to the cryptic message shared by Karan Johar on his Instagram story. She said he insulted her many times on TV and commented, “Aaj inki Hindi dekh ke khayal aaya…” Read on to know more!
The beef between Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar is not new and has been ongoing for years now. It became even more obvious when the Tanu Weds Manu lead actress appeared on Koffee with Karan season 5 in 2017 and said that the Lust Stories director is a flag bearer of nepotism in the industry, who only favors and casts people from film families.
Since then, the tag of nepotism has never left Karan Johar and always finds a way to come back to him. During the pandemic in 2020 after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, it became even more intense for KJo, as millions called him out for spreading nepotism and favoritism in Bollywood.
On the other hand, after making direct comments on Karan Johar on Koffee, the Queen actress has been getting a lot of support and praise for her candid and brave front in calling out persistent issues like nepotism. However, lately, the actress has been getting in a lot of trouble for sharing absurd and illogical claims about politics and religion on her social media.
As a consequence, in 2020, Kangana’s Twitter account was also banned, but it was reactivated in January of this year. The actress has been seen taking a dig at different personalities in Bollywood, be it Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, and many more.
This time, Kangana again took a dig at KJo when he shared a mysterious Hindi poetry on Instagram stories, apparently for his trolls after an old video of him and Anushka Sharma reemerged on the Internet.
What Exactly Did Kangana Say on Karan Johar’s Cryptic Instagram Story?
Trolling for nepotism is not something new for Karan Johar. He has been called out for the same thing time and again, even more since the Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi lead appeared on his show and attributed him as the “flag bearer of nepotism.”
So, recently, an old video of Karan Johar and Anushka Sharma resurfaced online, where he can be seen jokingly making comments about “killing” Anushka’s career. Karan Johar didn’t approve of the Bombay Velvet actress when she was about to make her debut with Aditya Chopra in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. During the marketing and promotion of Ae Dil Hain Muskhil, the duo amusingly talked about the same incident. To which Anuskha responded that Karan wanted to “finish” her career before it even began.
Apparently, all this started recently when Priyanka Chopra appeared on the famous podcast Armchair Expert by Dax Shepherd and made some serious allegations about the Bollywood industry and how she felt cornered and tired of the politics that were going against her. She said people were not giving her movies and trying to sabotage her career. That’s when she decided she no longer wanted to be part of this rut and moved to the U.S. for better work opportunities and collaborations.
Here’s what she said, verbatim:
“I had people not casting me, I had beef with people, I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break. This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave the movies I didn’t want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people. It would require groveling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn’t feel like I wanted to do it.”
What Did Karan Johar Have To Say About The Nepotism Allegations Resurfacing Against Him Again?
Over the years, Karan has been seen ignoring the trolls and not making any comments. However, recently, when the whole nepotism narrative against him started again on social media, he shared a very cryptic Hindi poem, something along these lines:
“Laga lo ilzaam, hum jhukne waalon mein se nahi… jhoot ka ban jao ghulam… hum bolne waalon mein se nahi… jitna neecha dikhaoge… jitne aarop lagaoge… hum girne waalon mein se nahi… humara karam humari Vijay hai…aap utha lo talvaar… Hum marne waalon mein se nahi…”
To which Kangana Ranaut responded, took a dig at the K3G director, and commented something along these lines:
“Ek waqt tha jab Chacha Chaudhary elite nepo mafia walon ke saath national television pe mujhe insult and bully karta tha (There was a time when Chacha Chaudhary along with the elite nepo mafia would insult and bully me on national television) because I couldn’t speak English…Aaj inki Hindi dekh ke khayal aaya, abhi toh sirf tumhari Hindi sudhari hai aage aage dekho hota hai kya”
