Kangana Ranaut Strikes Hard At Karan Johar Who Found Hindi 'Downmarket And Uncool'; Here's What She Said

If there was not enough drama in Bollywood, it was further intensified with the whole Hindi vs South Indian film industry debate. Many celebrities hopped on the bandwagon by voicing out thier opinion on the debate with majority speaking diplomatically to appear politically correct. However, there is now an entirely different twist to the controversy as infamous Bollywood nemesis, Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar joined in.

An old statement from the Dharma boss, Karan Johar resurfaced on the internet where he revealed in his autobiography, An Unsuitable Boy (2017), that he found Hindi ‘uncool and downmarket’. As per Hindustan Times, an excerpt from his book read, ”I was always closer to the girls, Shweta and Zoya. The boys were very bratty, especially Abhishek (he is four years younger than me) and Farhan. I never really got along with them. I never liked them. And Adi (Aditya Chopra) and gang always spoke a lot in Hindi. That was something I couldn’t bear,”

Hr further added that he would complain to his mother about his peers speaking in Hindi and talking about Hindi films. ”I found this constant talk in Hindi rather downmarket and uncool. I told my mother that I would not talk to these kids,” Karan Johar wrote in the book. Apparently, Kangana Ranaut stumbled upon an article about the same and decided to strike hard at the director for his former opinions about Hindi.

Taking to her Instagram story, Kangana shared the news article and wrote, ”I don’t fight individuals, I fight mindsets… And to a large extent I have fought this prejudice against small town Hindi speaking people.” The autobiography was released in 2016 but Kangana vs Karan has been going on for quite some time now.
