Sonam Kapoor On Kangana Ranaut-Karan Johar Feud: Should Not Wash Dirty Linen In Public


Sonam Kapoor reacts at Kangana Ranaut-Karan Johar controversy.

Karan Johar and Kangana Ranaut’s recent controversy had shaken the industry and had also left audience shocked. The two have been lashing out at each other with their blunt and shocking statement. Kangana Ranaut called Karan Johar “flagbearer of nepotism, the movie mafia”. On the other hand, Karan Johar reacted to the same by saying that Kangana is playing a victim card.

Not known to stay quiet, Kangana Ranaut giving her piece of mind over Karan Johar calling her “victim card”. In a recent interview, the Queen actress has revealed that Karan Johar’s team requested from months to give dates for Koffee With Karan. She also responded to Karan’s statement on leaving the country. The actress said, “He is nobody to tell me to leave it. I’m definitely not going anywhere, Mr. Johar.”

Recently, in an interview with NDTV, Sonam Kapoor was asked to share her views on nepotism and the controversy between Karan Johar and Kangana Ranaut.

Sonam Kapoor replied, “I said it was very entertaining. Every morning I wake up and it’s great bathroom reading. It’s mudslinging of the worst kind. I don’t know Kangana, but I know Karan very well. I think I find Kangana very entertaining and that’s about it. Well, I don’t want to comment on something that looks opportunistic, honestly. And I believe you are a feminist when you build other people up, especially other women.”

She further said, “All I can say is that I respect the choices that she has made in her career till now. I made a decision when I was very young after my second or first Koffee With Karan – it was that I would not do mudslinging when other actors and actresses are concerned because I would not do it for TRP’s. I would not do it for a channel and I felt if I have to give an opinion or be opinionated, it would have to be for something that is relevant and I don’t think dragging someone down or criticizing someone or having this public spat – I find it very distasteful. You can set examples without washing your dirty linen in public.

She added, “I’m very close to Aanand Rai and I’m very close to Swara Bhaskar and very close to Karan. These 3 people, I know are very idealistic and ethical human beings. Aanand L. Rai made a Raanjhanaa with me. He’s also made Tanu Manu 1 and 2 with Kangana and if anything, his female protagonists are very strong. Swara Bhaskar is one of my closest friends and Karan has only taken me in one movie – I Hate Luv Storys, 9 years back and if he really was someone who was a flagbearer of nepotism, I’m sure he wouldn’t have launched 12 directors. So, both of them are right in their own way. I just find this argument, something that I feel like, I don’t want to be a part of and I don’t want to comment on. I don’t see anything that is worth commenting on.
