Shah Rukh Khan is one of the biggest celebrities in India and has millions of fans around the world so obviously, his fans will not like someone abusing their icon, and this was what happened to Karan Johar today. Karan responded with a statement on Twitter after he found himself receiving backlash and brutal trolling after he appeared to ‘like’ a tweet comparing his production venture Kesari and Zero’s box office collections. Karan alluded to having a “technical problem” that caused the ‘like’ on the said tweet, but netizens were not that forgiving and they quickly started trending #ShameOnKaranJohar.
Karan quickly took the matter in his own hands and issued a statement on Twitter saying that he has been encountering strange things going on his account and assured his fans and followers that he is trying to solve the issue asap. In fact, even Shah Rukh took the opportunity to stand by the filmmaker and responded with a hilarious tweet.
Karan and SRK are well-known for their bond of friendship and they have often gone on record to say that they are family to each other. In fact, Karan regards Shah Rukh as an elder brother. However, the two have not collaborated on any project for quite some time now. Karan also took the opportunity to plug in the reference of his new song First Class from his upcoming production venture Kalank after he reclaimed his account and the problem was solved.
The tweet where the filmmaker ‘liked’ the comparison between Kesari’s and Zero’s collection is no longer available on Karan’s account but the tweet had half-day comparisons of the two films with really offensive comments.
