Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan has said that he cannot endorse Kangana Ranaut’s remarks about Karan Johar being the flag-bearer of nepotism, which she made during an appearance on ‘Koffee with Karan’. Saif was witness to the origins of a debate that continues to this day, and has only intensified in recent weeks, reports Hindustan Times.
He told The New Indian Express, “I have no idea what Kangana was saying on Koffee with Karan because I don’t think like that. I mean if you come on to a show and if you’ve got an agenda prepared to take the host down, my mind doesn’t work like that. I don’t understand. So I was a little surprised obviously. But these issues have absolutely nothing to do with me and I tend to find myself in the middle of them. Maybe I should think sometimes before commenting.”He added, “As far as Karan is concerned, he has made himself a large symbol and because he has put on so many different hats. It seems like he’s attracting a lot of flak for it. I’m sure it’s not all deserved. The truth is always complicated. There’s much more to it but unfortunately people aren’t interested in that. They are just interested in symbols. He just happens to be a symbol for something at the moment that is not very popular. I hope the tide is over and better things that he is known for like a filmmaker and producer shines through.”
