Ace filmmaker and producer Karan Johar has come under the radar of netizens, thanks to his latest matrimonial endorsement. KJo recently promoted a matrimonial site exclusively for IIT and IIM alumni and shared a video of it on his Instagram handle. In his post, he said that he is super excited to see some "real love come to life, not just reel". Soon after this, a certain section of people badly trolled Karan Johar for the site that claimed IIT/IIM alumni will be mentally compatible only with another IIT/IIM alumni.
Many users called it ‘ridiculous and offensive’. On Wednesday, the filmmaker shared a video of a matrimonial site and wrote, “A matrimonial platform like no other - IITIIMShaadi.com! And I'm super excited to see some 'real' love come to life, not just reel! They invite alumni of the top 10-15 colleges from all fields to register and find a match amongst each other!@iitiimshaadi__ puts it well - Alma Mater Matters.” ALSO READ: Hunarbaaz: Karan Johar Gets Trolled As He Dances To 'Ghoonghat Ki Aad Me Dilbar Ka'; Netizen Calls Him, 'Icchadhari Naagin' -WATCH VIDEO
'Irate' users and netizens, in no time, took to the comments section to call out Karan and slammed him for his choice of endorsement. One said, “Are you serious?? If this isn't a joke then you are by endorsing this ridiculous platform.” Another troll reacted, “This whole concept is so offensive.. Are they trying to say that an IIT/IIM alumni will be mentally compatible only with another IIT/IIM alumni?! Ridiculous!” A third user commented, “Is this for real? And you are such a sell out for endorsing shit like this.” It seems like Karan Johar has miffed several users with this endorsement.
On the work front, he is returning to direction after several years with the upcoming film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. It will hit the theaters on February 10, 2023. Karan Johar will also remake the Malayalam movie 'Hridayam'.
