WHAT! Karan Johar Admits He Wanted To MURDER Anushka Sharma’s Career? Says, ‘Was Totally Behind The Scene SABOTAGING Her Completely’
Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar proudly calls himself the flag bearer of nepotism. Days after being indirectly called out by Priyanka Chopra for sabotaging her Bollywood career, a video of an old press conference where he confessed of wanting to completely murder Anushka Sharma’s career when Aditya Chopra had signed her as the leading lady for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in 2008.

The video shared by a Reddit user was from the 18th MAMI Film Festival hosted in 2018 where Karan can be seen sitting beside Anushka and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan during their interaction with Rajeev Masand and Anupama Chopra. The filmmaker goes on to recall how he was unhappy with Chopra’s decision to sign the actress as he had another lead actress in mind who he wanted the YRF’s head honcho to sign. He went as far as to say, “I was totally behind the scene sabotaging her completely. The movie also, I was reluctantly watching Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.” ALSO READ: Karan Johar Takes A Subtle Dig At The Ongoing NEPOTISM Debate; Says, ‘Loved So Many Looks At The Dior Show!’
However it was her performance in Band Baaja Baaraat that changed his perception. He explained how he called her, apologised to her and even complimented her on her performance. He added, “Apology because I felt so embarrassed that I would have actually ruined the graph of an exceptional talent and secondly, a compliment because I thought she was amazing.” ALSO READ: Karan Johar Shares A Glimpse Of His Luxurious Home Designed By Gauri Khan; From A Glamorous Bedroom To A Black-Themed Bathroom- Take A Look

Netizens have been left enraged at his bold confession, going as far as to wonder how many actual career’s he has sabotaged without anyone knowing. One netizen said, “Just completely loving how he is openly accepting how capable he is to murder/ sabotage anyone’s career and able to replace the cast and change their career graphs as he wants !!” Another said, “Shameful pathetic man. To sit there and laugh about casually destroying a person’s professional career.”

On the work front, Karan Johar will be making his comeback as a director with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani. The movie also stars Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi in pivotal roles and will release on April 28, 2023.
