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".

"You are here because of your papa", Saif quipped. They then declared together, "Nepotism rocks,", clearly showing that this might have been pre planned. This year, the hosts nearly mercilessly took a dig at the infamous nepotism debate which was started off by the feisty Kangana Ranaut right on the couch of Koffee With Karan, where she tagged Johar the flag-bearer of nepotism.

Kangana doesn't like to mince her words, so we are waiting to see her reply on this. Karan took no time to join the giggle party and said he was in the industry thanks to his father Yash Johar. Those tweeting included Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi and AIB member Tanmay Bhatt.

When Dhawan arrived on stage, Saif told him, "You are here because of your papa (David Dhawan)" to which Varun said, "You are here because of your mummy (Sharmila Tagore)". He said that "I just realised they legit yelled Nepotism Rocks at the end of it and I can not stop face palming". Karan quickly added, "I am because of my pappa".

While one of the Twitter users posted "How is it an "insult" to Kangana If anything it's a crass/tacky display of how shamelessly nepotistic Bollywood,".

Director-producer Karan Johar seems to be in no mood to get over Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut's comments over nepotism in the Hindi film industry. Insulting a lady on such a big stage simply not acceptable. Like yeah it did for you and that makes you a loser. Saif then started singing, "Bole Choodiyan, Bole Kangana..." and KJo reacted, "Kangana bolti hi kyun hai?".
