Bollywood’s Karan Johar was slammed by Nayanthara fans ever since the airing of the latest episode of Koffee With Karan Season 7 that featured Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Akshay Kumar.
The Talk Show
Fans of South Indian superstar Nayanthara are angry with Bollywood producer-filmmaker Karan Johar after he made an indirect remark about Nayanthara on the recent episode of his chat show Koffee With Karan. Samantha Ruth Prabhu graced the recent episode of Karan’s show along with Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar.
During their conversation, Karan showed Ormax Media’s list of most popular female stars in the country, which is crowned by Samantha. Then, while discussing why stars shy away from multi-starrers, Karan asked Samantha about working with a Southern actress in a film.
To this, Samantha replied that she just worked with Nayanthara in Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal. “Well, I recently did a film with Nayanthara,” Samantha said, adding that Nayanthara is the biggest actress down South.
However, Karan did not agree and joked that his list doesn’t say so. “Well, not on my list!” reacted the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil filmmaker.

Karan’s reaction did not go down well with Nayanthara fans as they believe that the filmmaker disregarded their beloved actress’ popularity. Taking to Twitter, they criticized Karan and called him out for being ‘disrespectful’.
#KaranJohar 🤡 list doesn’t determine the number one actress. #nayanthara is lady super star and will always be the queen of South Indian cinema. Her movie and acting proves that. She doesn’t need to be in anyone’s list for that😏
