Varun Dhawan says Kangana Ranaut is 'Right' about nepotism. Yes, this happened

Varun Dhawan said that the debate on nepotism in film industry started by Kangana Ranaut was right to a certain extent

The controversy around Kangana Ranaut doesn’t look to end anytime soon. Be it her nepotism comments or the explosive statements she made against Bollywood biggies, the Simran star has grabbed the headlines. Many have reacted to her remark on nepotism and it’s Varun Dhawan who has lend his comment in the row. He said that the debate on nepotism in film industry started by Kangana Ranaut was right to a certain extent but blown out of proportion.

At an event Varun was questioned about Kangana’s accusation that filmmaker Karan Johar has only launched star kids, Varun, son of filmmaker David Dhawan, said, “Who all has he launched by now? They’re all star kids right? Then it’s not an accusation, it’s the truth…”

“To a certain extent what Kangana is saying is right. I think this matter was blown up. She was just trying to get a point across. She wanted to say it in her own way but people stretched it too much. But we are a fraternity,” the Judwaa 2 star added.

However, Varun said Johar had also launched a lot of budding filmmakers who had no connections in the industry. “But Karan has also launched a lot of directors like Shashank Khaitan, who is a very dear friend of mine. He is from Nashik and had nothing to do with film family. He gave a script to Karan, who believed in his dreams.
“Karan had also made Gippy where he launched a girl… Even Sidharth Malhotra isn’t from the industry,” he added.

Earlier this year, the Queen star had called Johar “flag-bearer of nepotism” on his own chat show, stoking a major controversy. The matter escalated further at an award function when Varun along with hosts for the event, Karan and Saif Ali Khan, mocked Kangana over the issue.The trio was criticised on social media for the joke made at the expense of the actor and had to eventually apologise for the same.
