Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Kangana Ranaut's tiff that started years back seems to be still continuing. Recently, while attending the YouTube Fan Fest, the director indirectly took a jibe on the actress as he talked about nepotism.
Karan who shared the stage with Bhuvan Bam's alter ego 'Titu Mama' on the stage, was seen engaging in a hilarious banter with him, and when he was asked why do you love the word nepotism so much? Karan replied saying that he doesn't love this subject rather someone else does. He further stated since he has work to do he has assigned the task of talking to that someone.
"Mujhe ye subject pyara nahi hai, kisi aur ko ye subject bohat pyara hai aur kya bolu main, ham bolega toh bologe ki bolta hai, toh bolne ka kam maine unko saunp dia hai, kaam karne ka maine le liya hai." he can be heard saying in a YouTube video that is now going viral on the internet.

Karan Johar and Kangana Ranaut's spat on 'Koffee With Karan' years back is famous or rather infamous, for it started an almighty debate. When the actress had come as a guest at his show, she had openly called him the 'flag bearer of nepotism' in Bollywood, pointing out to the fact he always launches star kids. This had kicked off the great nepotism debate which went on and on for months and apparently still continuing.
While the celebrity duo often takes digs on each other, in a recent interview, the 'Manikarnika' actress slammed Karan and his troop for negative PR, and accused them saying that she knows for sure that he is behind the leak of the mechanical horse video. She also went on to call them 'exclusive people' and also said that because of them, words such as 'nepotism' and 'outsider' are being used extensively in Bollywood.
Meanwhile, on the work front, while Karan is backing several hit ventures, Kangana is all set to essay the role of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in an upcoming biopic. She will also be seen sharing screen space with Rajkummar Rao in 'Mental Hai Kya'.
