Karan Johar Takes A Dig At Claims Of Sabotaging Priyanka And Anushka’s Career
Karan took to his Instagram Stories and wrote, “Laga lo ilzaam, Hum jhukne waalon mein se nahi, Jhoot ka ban jao ghulam, Hum bolne waalon mein se nahi, Jitna neecha dikhaoge, Jitne aarop lagaoge, Hum girne waalon mein se nahi, Humara karam humari Vijay hai, Aap utha lo talvaar, Hum marne waalon mein se nahi.”
It all started when Priyanka Chopra, during one of her podcast interviews last month said, “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me, I had beef with people. I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break.”
Meanwhile, even Kangana Ranaut said, “People ganged up on her, bullied her and chased her out of the film industry. A self-made woman was made to leave India. Everyone knows Karan Johar had banned her.”
