“Dear Ambition…if you have to achieve your full potential stay away from your arch nemesis….Comparison!”
The above are the words of Bollywood director-producer Karan Johar. This is one of his latest ‘gyan’ tweets dished out on Thursday morning.
So far, so good.
But some interpreters have it that this one is a cryptic tweet directed at Prabhas! They have it that KJo is cautioning the ‘Saaho’ star against comparing his remuneration with that of Bollywood superstars.
But why should they say this?
For the last few days, whether or not it’s true, gossip mills have been saying that Prabhas demanded a whopping Rs. 20 Cr as remuneration when Karan approached him with a script. Piqued by this unrealistic demand, they say, he is indirectly lecturing the ‘Baahubali’ sensation to stop being over-ambitious.
This could be quite absurd. But then, such are the times we live in!
