After watching Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’, Karan Johar took to Twitter to praise the ‘brilliant piece of film-making’ that it is. He said Zoya Akhtar is his ‘favourite filmmaker, for making such an incredible film’. He also called it his ‘favourite film, this decade’.
It was to this Tweet thread that a Twitter user replied, accusing Karan Johar of being the ‘flag-bearer nepotism’. For which, the director had a rather funny response.
Addressing the Twitter user’s hate-message, Karan Johar simply typed a 5-word response saying, “Chup kar aur picture dekh!!!!!”, meaning ‘keep quiet, and watch the film’.
This is not the first time, however, that the director took on a social media troll. On February 14, Karan Johar was accused of ‘keeping his children away from their mother’s love.’ Johar slammed the user for her ‘narrow-mindedness’. He added that there are larger issues the country is combating – referring to the Pulwama attack.
Ma’m!! With all due respect! Get a life! There are larger issues the country is combatting at the moment and it can very well do without your narrow mindedness! My babies are being LOVED and that’s all that matters…and FYI they have a mother!! My mother! Get it! ??? https://t.co/UercFh9rQ0
