The saga surrounding actor Sushant Singh Rajput continues to gain mileage for one reason or the other but if there is one thing that is specifically been stagnant, then that is the fan outburst. Fans have been slamming several Bollywood celebrities online, especially in the case of nepotism. And when it comes to the topic of nepotism, everything has been surfacing around director and producer Karan Johar.
The uproar surrounding him has led to Johar facing the wrath of netizens for over three weeks now. Kangana Ranaut in 2016 had labeled him as the flag bearer of nepotism and since then KJo hasn't been able to get rid of this tag. After Sushant's demise, social media was quick to target him and his 'camp'. Not only Karan but Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Ananya Pandey, Arjun Kapoor, Ayush Sharma, and many others have been constantly facing major criticism for being star kids and allegedly a by-product of nepotism.
Johar has constantly maintained silence throughout this whole thing but his close filmmaker friend went on to open up on Johar's state of mind to Bollywood Hungama. He said, "Karan is a broken man. After being trolled for years he thought he had developed a thick skin. But the brutal hatred that he has received after Sushant’s death has left him shattered.” He added, “It’s the fact that those close to him are being attacked that makes Karan feel really guilty. His 3-year old twins are getting death threats. Somebody like Ananya Pandey who has no connection with Sushant had a hater on the social media platform asking her to commit suicide to compensate for Sushant’s death."
When asked about if he will ever give a statement regarding this whole saga, he said, “None at all. Lawyers’ advice. Better to keep mum. Karan is in no condition to speak. The fight has gone out of him. He looks like a man beaten by fate. It’s not a pleasant experience to speak to Karan. He breaks down and cries when we call him. He is constantly crying and asking what he has done to deserve this."
