Early on this year, “nepotism” seemed to be one of the biggest catchphrases on social media. It all started with Kangana Ranaut’s episode on Koffee With Karan, and after that, a lot of other actors were grilled about it. Well, it seems the debate hasn’t died yet. Filmmaker Karan Johar got the topic boiling again when he tried to mock Ranaut and her take on nepotism along with actors Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan at IIFA awards recently.

When Dhawan came to collect his award for Dishoom, Khan said, “You are here because of your Papa!” to which Varun Dhawan responded, “And you’re here because of your mummy.” Karan Johar added, “I am here because of my Papa. Making a joke about how they are proud to belong to filmy families, the three said in unison: “Nepotism rocks”. Taking a potshot at Johar, Dhawan was quick to retort: “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.”

While the three seemed quite amused with the entire fiasco, their jokes badly backfired when Twitterati sneered back with angry and bitter tweets. In the barrage of criticism that followed, Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi also voiced his opinion.

Take a look at all the tweets here.
