Rajesh Khattar REACTS To Nepotism Allegations On Son Ishaan Khattar In Dhadak
Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor starrer is soon to release and it’s posters have created tremendous buzz amongst the fans. The official adaptation of Marathi critically acclaimed film Sairat will be directed by Shashank Khaitan and will be bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Just as the posters came out, twitterati jumped into the matter chanting ‘nepotism rocks’. Beyhadh actor and Ishaan’s father Rajesh Khattar recently opened up about the whole issue talking to DNA and called social media as ‘open defacation ground.’
Talking about the issue, Rajesh Khattar said, “Social media is great to reach out if you have something to convey or share, but unfortunately, has become an open defecation ground for trolls, where people want to dump their sh** on anyone they fancy.” Rajesh added, “It’s not as if Karan was compelled to take Ishaan! He is going by the subject and what he wants to project. The story is about youngsters in the 18-21-year-old age bracket and he wanted actors with no image, which is why he chose them (Janhvi and Ishaan).”
He further stated, “What was nepotism applicable in Shahid’s case? His parents — Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azim — were not huge stars. He made his way up. Today, they are targetting Ishaan for being Shahid’s brother! When Shah Rukh Khan came in, where was the nepotism? But if his son Aryan will make his acting foray, they will say nepotism! Where will the buck stop?” (ALSO READ: Karan Johar Launches Janhvi Kapoor And Ishaan Khattar In Dhadak, Twitterati Chants ‘Nepotism Rocks’)
