Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise has reignited the debate of nepotism in Bollywood. And none other than filmmaker Karan Johar has come under the direct radar of the furious fans for the same. People have been protesting and boycotting the director. However, it was Swara Bhasker who recently came in support of Karan Johar. Taking to her twitter handle, Swara reportedly said that although Karan Johar is being questioned, he should be given credit for not removing the nepotism comment from his chat show which according to Swara he could have done.
When a twitter user asked her why is she supporting the filmmaker, she replied by saying that she has no upcoming films with the director but it is only right to give credit where it is due.
It was Kangana Ranaut in Bollywood who first accused Karan Johar of promoting nepotism in the industry. She also called him the flag-bearer of nepotism in the industry.
After the sad demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the filmmaker and others like Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt are being slammed on social media for encouraging people from within the industry and denying opportunities to talented people from outside the industry.
Karan has also lost a lot of followers on social media. He too has reportedly unfollowed a lot of people following the backlash.
