KWK: Karan Johar, "Flag Bearer Of Nepotism." This time, he said it
As in nepotism, the N word (as it is used in the term) finds its way back onto the KoffeeWith Karan couch. It did so again today. Karan Johar joked that he was the “flag bearer for nepotism” after introducing Akshay Kumar, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Samantha Ruth Prabhu tonight. KJo spoke candidly about Akshay and Samantha’s lives, as well as their careers, before referring to himself as the “flag bearer of nepotism.” KJo asked Samantha questions about Hyderabad’s nepotism and she replied that celebrity are in some way related. Samantha responded, “I think it differs between apples to apples.” Whether you are a Nepo kid or not, every child has their demons. The point is that once you have entered the game, your dad will still be watching, regardless of whether he’s the coach. He cannot help you win the game. The ball will always be in the court of the audience, and there is no divine intervention.
Akshay asked Akshay Kumar, “Does it seem like you have combatted nepotism?” When he first entered the field, he didn’t even understand the definition of nepotism. “I did not even understand the meaning of nepotism. My wife, Twinkle Khanna, explained the meaning to me. After that, I realized the entire fighting. The industry was new to me. I didn’t know what I was doing. I wanted to be able make money. Also, he recalled the moment he taught martial arts. He was earning Rs 5000 per monthly. However, when an advertisement was placed for him to work two hours, he received Rs 21,000. He decided then to pursue acting and make money.
Later, Karan Johar joked that “Nepotism has made me a jaani deshman.” You can call it a brand. The constant trolling was later referred to by he who added: “I have learned to accept it.”
