It seems Karan Johar is done with the debate on nepotism. In his column Karan Affairs for NDTV.com, the 44-year-old filmmaker defended his comments on "nepotism in Bollywood," a hotly debated topic which resurfaced after his old video (in which confesses he's 'guilty of nepotism') went viral earlier this week. "Everywhere I go, the word nepotism chases me. I run, but it finds me!" he wrote.
In his column Karan also said: "We're not NGOs! We are businesses with bottom lines and budgets. And tomorrow if I want to launch Shah Rukh Khan's son because he's Shah Rukh Khan's son and I believe I can gain from it, why won't I? I run a company, it's a balance of commerce and art, and both matter."
The oft-debated topic restarted when Kangana Ranaut branded KJo as the "flagbearer of nepotism" in Bollywood on his talk show Koffee With Karan in February. A few weeks later Karan Johar said that he's done with Kangana playing the 'woman and victim card.'
Karan Johar last produced Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan's Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
