Whoa! Is that true? Did Karan Johar actually accept that he is guilty as charged? Well, according to this video, YES! As far as nepotism is concerned, Karan Johar’s name has been associated with it the most. And now, we have come across this old video which has Karan Johar ACCEPTING that he is guilty of nepotism. Ever since Kangana Ranaut went on to call Karan Johar the “flag bearer of nepotism” a lot of Bollywood celebs have spoken about the issue. And while nepotism still continues to be the hot topic of discussion, KJo’s confession in this old video is something that might leave you shocked!

In the video, he goes on to say, “I picked up a chubby girl and I felt something. Maybe the fact that she was Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter also excited me. I don’t know. Right now I may say no but maybe that has been a very strong sub-layer. And that is nepotism and we are guilty and I am guilty. I am definitely guilty. Would I have cast Varun Dhawan if he wasn’t David Dhawan’s son? Because he was David Dhawan’s son he was on my set as an AD and that’s where I could spend enough time with him to know that he can be a movie star. So as I said, it has a lot to do with the fact that there are too many factors in this country that determine movie stardom and I think true talent is the least of them. It is very sad and truly tragic. Would I have been a filmmaker? I am a producer’s son. I had no experience, I was an assistant on one film, my father had the platform to give me and therefore I am a filmmaker. If I go through any struggle in my career then I deserve it.” The filmmaker had appeared on Anupama Chopra’s show The Front Row with Deepika Padukone and Tisca Chopra way back in 2014 and that’s when he said this.
