Many know about the ‘Nepotism’ chant that Saif, Varun and Karan made in the IIFA awards 2017 held in New York. It so happened that Varun Dhawan came on the stage for his ‘Best Comic Role’ for ‘Dhishoom’ when Saif pointed that he is here because of his father (David Dhawan)
Responding to the remark, Varun said ‘And you are here because of your mummy (veteran actress Sharmila Tagore).”
Karan then promptly added: “I am here because of my papa (late filmmaker Yash Johar).”
The trio then together chanted, “Nepotism Rocks!”
While this was funny for the audience present in the show, it didn’t go well with the Twitteratis.
Tanmay Bhat: I just realized they legit yelled Nepotism Rocks at the end of it and I cannot stop face palming.
“How is it an “insult” to Kangana If anything it’s a crass/tacky display of how shamelessly nepotistic Bollywood,” one of the users posted.
“Last night Karan Johar was shamelessly chanting nepotism rocks. So it means he admits that he has no talent and he’s just a piece of shit,” added another user.
“Totally not expected from you Varun Dhawan, seriously you said ‘nepotism rocks’. Insulting a lady in such a big stage simply not acceptable. I’m disappointed,” said a user.
Another fan wrote: I don’t know what kind of entitlement you need to actually find ‘nepotism rocks’ funny. Like yeah it did for you and that makes you a loser.
