Even after 20 days of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the outpouring of the fans’ emotions hasn’t stopped. The death of a rising star has not yet been digested.
A debate that has gained mileage post the actor’s death is nepotism in the industry and the one man who is at the center focus of the outrage has been the producer and filmmaker Karan Johar. Karan Johar has been regarded as the flag bearer of nepotism ever since Kangana Ranaut accused him on his show Koffee With Karan. Post the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the hate has only multiplied.
As per the sources from his close friend, Karan Johar is quite disturbed by online hate. His friend told Bollywood Hungama that,
“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. It’s the fact that those close to him are being attacked which 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.”
‘Karan Cries When We Call Him’
When asked about if Karan Johar will ever give a statement regarding this, his friend 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 has he done to deserve this.”
Karan Johar recently unfollowed many celebrities from his social media account. As per reports, he is also likely to resign from the Mumbai Academy of Moving Images board. However, the chairperson of the board, Deepika Padukone is consoling and convincing Karan to reverse his decision. There were also reports that his famous chat show Koffee With Karan is likely to go off air soon.
