Nepotism rocks: Karan Johar gets back at Kangana again

Nepotism rocks

New York, July 17: Filmmaker Karan Johar, along with actors Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan — all of whom belong to film families — didn’t shy away from raking up the nepotism debate once again at the IIFA Awards event here on Sunday night.

Karan and Saif, who were hosting the gala, revisited the much-talked about an issue which started in Bollywood when “Queen” star Kangana Ranaut branded Karan as a “flagbearer of nepotism” on his chat show.

When Varun joined the two actors on the stage at the Metlife Stadium to receive the Best Performance in a Comic Role for “Dishoom”, Saif joked that the actor had made it big in the industry because of his father, director David Dhawan.

“You are here because of your pappa,” Saif quipped.

Varun said: “And you’re here because of your mummy (veteran actress Sharmila Tagore).”

Karan then promptly added: “I am here because of my pappa (late filmmaker Yash Johar).”

They then said in unison: “Nepotism rocks”.

Varun then didn’t leave a chance to take a potshot at Karan saying: “There was a song in your film… ‘Bole choodiyan, bole kangana.”

Karan, with his quick wit, then commented: “Kangana naa hi bole toh achha hai… Kangana bahut bolti hai. (It’s better Kangana doesn’t say anything, she talks a lot.”

At the IIFA Awards night, actors Taapsee Pannu and “The Black Prince” actor Satinder Sartaaj didn’t miss a chance to ask Karan if they could get a role in his films or feature on “Koffee With Karan” respectively.

“It is my dream to be on ‘Koffee With Karan”, sir. Ek baar zarur bulaana (Call me at least),” Sartaaj said.

Mumbai, Dec 12: Producer Ritesh Sidhwani says that actress Deepika Padukone is not a part of the “Don” franchise.

There were reports that Deepika Padukone may replace actress Priyanka Chopra in next part of “Don”. However Sidhwani has a different story to share.

Sidhwani on Monday said: “Deepika is not part of ‘Don'”.

He was speaking to media at the success party of his friday released film “Fukrey Returns” .

Talking about next part of Excel entertainment’s “Don” franchise, Sidhwani said: “We are working on that and very soon we will announce that also.”

Informing more about his future projects, he said: “Now we have produced comedy and next from our side will be ‘3 Storeys’ which will be a completely different film releasing in February.”

“Then we are coming up with ‘Gold’ and ‘Gully Boy’ so all these films are different in terms of genre and none of them are comedies, so I think people should follow what they believe in and the kind of stories they want to tell. If you try to do the same thing or emulate something which is not inherent, I don’t think success will come your way,” he added.

“Fukrey Returns” has crossed Rs. 30 crores in just three days of its arrival at the theatres.
