 Karan Johar now follows only 3 actors on Twitter

Following the backlash from a section of netizens post Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, filmmaker Karan Johar has now unfollowed several Twitter accounts. The handles which he has unfollowed include those of his close friend Twinkle Khanna, actress Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor, whom he launched, along with Dharma Productions’ blue-eyed boy Varun Dhawan. KJo now follows only eight Twitter handles, out of which only three belongs to the actors-namely Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan. The remaining belongs to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the other four are related to his production house.

Karan Johar has been facing backlash on social media for the past couple of days. Netizens accused KJo of hypocrisy after he penned down his thoughts on Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The filmmaker blamed himself for not having been in touch with the actor. His last film Drive, which got completed in 2018 but released a year later on Netflix, was produced by Karan Johar.

On a related note, when Sushant was asked about Drive, he had told Huffington Post, “I don’t know, I was repeatedly told that it would release but haven’t heard anything from them.I have only happy memories of Drive because the money I made off that film was donated to the Kerala floods.”  

“In off-record conversations, a Dharma executive joked that they don’t know how bad the film is because half of them haven’t bothered to see it,” wrote Huffington Post in its article.

Karan Johar and actress Alia Bhatt are being accused of speaking dismissively of Sushant on an episode of chat show Koffee With Karan. The outrage is also based on reports that Karan Johar and other renowned production houses boycotted Mr Rajput. In a tweet, politician Sanjay Nirupam, also alleged that Sushant lost seven projects he had signed after his 2019 hit.


Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh also wrote in a tweet, “While the post mortem report says actor @itsSSR committed suicide by hanging himself, there are media reports that he allegedly suffered from clinical depression because of professional rivalry. @MumbaiPolice will probe this angle too.”

Throwback clip from Koffee With Karan episode with Sonam Kapoor on the couch is also being circulated widely. This is in response to her tweet in which she wrote: “Blaming a girlfriend , ex girlfriend, family , colleagues for someone’s death is ignorant and fucking mean spirited.”
