So the main award ceremony of IIFA 2017 that took place at the MetLife Stadium in New York concluded some hour back, but not without some eyebrow raising moments. We told you that Shahid Kapoor won the Best Actor Award for his stellar act in Udta Punjab, but that didn’t go down well with Sushant Singh Rajput, who sent out a sarcastic tweet after the announcement. Well, that wasn’t it. Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan, who were the hosts of the night made lots of jokes and took open digs at their colleagues throughout the event, but one such remark might not be appreciated by Kangana Ranaut. Yes, she wasn’t present there, but we know that she triggered that whole nepotism debate when she appeared on Karan’s chat show, Koffee With Karan with Saif. Ever since then a LOT has been said and written about nepotism in Bollywood.
But that hasn’t stoped Karan and Saif from making jokes about it as we hear they kept on chanting, “Nepotism rocks… Nepotism rocks…” many times. In fact, when Varun Dhawan was receiving Best Actor in a Comic Role Award for Dishoom, KJO said, “I’m here because of my father, Saif is here because of his mother, and Varun is here also because of his father. What’s the big deal?”. That didn’t end there. Saif then started singing, “Bole Choodiyan, Bole Kangana…” and KJo reacted, “Kangana bolti hi kyun hai?”. Later on even, Varun said, “Down with nepotism!” Ouch! That was quite an open dig at Kangana. ALSO READ: IIFA 2017: Salman Khan Gives A Birthday Surprise To Katrina Kaif – Watch Video
Kangana doesn’t like to mince her words, so we are waiting to see her reply on this. Will she hit back at Karan and Saif yet again or remain quiet and let this nepotism debate die down?
