Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan have reignited the nepotism issue by ridiculing Kangana and flaunting their own nepotistic career propellers at the recently concluded IIFA awards. But, the jibe did not go down well and people reacted strongly against the unpleasant humour.
Soon, Varun Dhawan, expressed apology on his social media over the IIFA mishap, as he termed. A day after Karan Johar too has realized that that the joke wasn’t in good taste and apologized for the same. And now, Kangana’s ‘Rangoon’ co-star Saif Ali Khan has revealed that he has apologized to Kangana over a text message and regrets being a part of the joke.
He also has addressed the blazing controversy in an interview to FirstPost, saying, “I respect Kangana tremendously for what she’s achieved, for coming up the hard way. We’re a mutual admiration society. She also agrees that despite having illustrious parents, I too have had an uneven beginning in Bombay. I understand what Kangana means by her stance on nepotism, though I have a slightly different take on it. People knew who I was because of my parents but that didn’t necessarily give me an easy ride. Look at the spate of terrible movies I’ve starred in and you know that phase lasted for a long while.”
