Recently, in an interview Barkha Dutt at Town Hall, Karan was asked about Kangana and whether he was nepotistic or sexist on KWK. To which he said, “I was not at all. I felt like I was attacked, she was the missile and I was the target. I was not being nepotistic or sexist, I was just like she has her opinion and she is giving her thoughts. She clearly learned those 12 lines and came and they were wonderful. Even I learn my lines for any interview, these are not criticism." 

He added, "She had an opinion, she is an exceptional talent and I have always said that. She has her opinion and she said it. Two weeks later I was given a platform and I said what I had to. I don’t know what to say, what she meant, whereas I have never crossed paths with her beyond here and there. She decided to choose me, to make her point which is fine.”

Barkha even asked him about the statement he gave of Kangana leaving the industry. Talking about it, KJo said, “I meant that if you have so many issues and you are still going on with other beats of life, I gave her an option like she gave me one. I have no regrets of being insensitive. I firmly believe she is an exceptional talent." 

He went on to say, "I don’t hate Kangana and she doesn’t hate me. And I don’t regret my words. We are adults and I will probably call her for my next party and I forgot to call for the last one. I would love to call her because I have a great amount of regard for her. She wasn’t attacking me, she was blaming me for something and I was defending for the same."Karan Johar and Kangana Ranaut are having a war of words since the time she made an appearance on his show Koffee With Karan 5.
