An old video of Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is going viral on social media in which he is seen confessing that he once wanted to murder Anushka Sharma’s career. The video is from a 2016 event where he said that he tried to sabotage Anushka’s career in her initial years in Bollywood.
The Dharma Productions owner, who is labelled a flagbearer of nepotism by Kangana Ranaut, recalled how he almost ruined her career after he asked Aditya Chopra to cast Sonam Kapoor opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi instead of Anushka.
Narrating the incident, he said when Aditya showed him the photo of Anushka Sharma to cast in the film, he straight away refused her to cast. The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director said he called Aditya insane and told him that there was no need for him to sign her.
He said he wanted to cast Sonam Kapoor for this role, however, Aditya denied it and cast Anushka. Karan said the film was also something he reluctantly watched and was amazed.
However, Karan revealed that Anushka’s performance in Band Baaja Baaraat completely changed his perception. He said he called her since he felt like he owed her an apology and a compliment. Karan was accompanied by Anushka and Aishwarya Rai at the 18th MAMI Mumbai Film Festival in 2016, which was held around the release of his directorial, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
He said, Apology because he felt so embarrassed that he would have actually ruined the graph of exceptional talent and secondly, a compliment because he thought she was amazing, the filmmaker added.
This video didn’t go well down with several users on social media. Even The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri slammed Karan Johar for his comment. Reacting to the video, Agnihotri said Someone’s only hobby is to make or break careers. If Bollywood is in the gutter, it’s because of some people’s dirty backroom politics against talented outsiders.
A few days back, Priyanka Chopra made a sensational claim about how she was cornered in Bollywood and why she wanted to leave the place. She also said shifting to Hollywood was her conscious choice owing to the problems she was facing in Bollywood.
