New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut has undoubtedly raised a lot of eyebrows with her 'nepotism' remark against Karan Johar during her appearance in 'Koffee With Karan'. In one of the segments, Kangana told Karan that if she were ever to write an autobiography, Karan Johar would be the 'movie mafia' and the 'flagbearer of nepotism'.
While Karan during a candid chat with a friend revealed that he thinks that Kangana might not have understood the meaning of nepotism and that he was tired of her playing the 'victim card'. Karan further added that if Kangana has so many issues with the nepotic ways of the industry then she should just leave it.
In an interview published on March 09 by the Mumbai Mirror newspaper, Ranaut said she did not play the “woman card” as alleged by the host instead only played the “badass card” on Johar’s show.
“Why is Karan Johar trying to shame a woman for being a woman? What is this about the ‘woman card’ and the ‘victim card’? This kind of talk is demeaning to all women, particularly the vulnerable because they are the ones who really need to use them,” she said. “(Karan Johar) is nobody to tell me to leave it. I’m definitely not going anywhere, Mr Johar,” Ranaut told Mumbai Mirror. “If he thinks that it (nepotism) is restricted to nephews, daughters and cousins, I have nothing to say…What is important to understand is that we are not fighting people, we are fighting a mentality. I am not fighting Karan Johar, I am fighting male chauvinism.”
Later, targeting Karan's surrogate baby girl, Kangana said,“Now that Karan is the father of a little daughter, he should provide her with all these cards—the ‘woman card’ and the ‘victim card’, as also the ‘self-made-independent-woman card’, and the ‘badass card’ that I flashed on his show. We will use whatever we need to ensure no one rocks our boat.”
