‘Nepotism Rocks’ at IIFA 2017

Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan and Saif Ali Khan, while hosting the 18th IIFA awards, started a new controversy when they chanted "nepotism ROCKS" on the stage. It was done to deride Queen movie actress Kangana who had called Karan as "flag-bearer of nepotism” on his chat show earlier this year. Later, all three men were slammed by people on twitter and their joke was called boorish.

18 वें आईफा पुरस्कारों की मेजबानी करते हुए करण जौहर, वरुण धवन और सैफ अली खान ने मंच पर 'नैपटिज़म रॉक्स' बोलकर एक नया विवाद शुरू कर दिया। यह क्वीन फिल्म की अभिनेत्री कंगना का मज़ाक उड़ाने के लिए किया गया, जिन्होंने इस साल के शुरू में करण के चैट शो पर उन्हें "परिवारवाद का ध्वजधारक" बुलाया था। बाद में ट्विटर पर लोगों ने इन तीनों की कड़ी आलोचना की और उनके मज़ाक को अशिष्ट कहा गया।
