From the time actor Kangna Ranaut called Johar the ‘Flag bearer of nepotism’ during his talk show Koffee with Karan, the tag seems to have stayed. Which is exactly what happened once again when the filmmaker revealed the cast of this film. Similar reactions were also received when movie Student of the Year was released.
All nepotism except Vicky and Bhumi. Howcome someone like Kangna Ranaut never finds herself in movies being cast by you! Your insecurity?

Lol and then people get pissed off when Kangana says something about Nepotism! This picture screams Nepotism!

His only concept of life is #Nepotism, Everyone is sure that Bhumi & Vicky will be having small roles.
