IIFA 2017: Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan and Saif Ali Khan shout 'nepotism rocks', take jibe at Kangana Ranaut

Looks like Karan Johar is still smarting with the nepotism controversy even though the rest of the world seems to have forgotten about it. However, although there hasn't been much noise about it of late, at recent awards gala held in the Big Apple, we saw that the filmmaker was indeed upset with her comments as he went on to take further digs on her.

Stay tuned to India.com for more such gossip from IIFA 2017. But it was Kangna Ranaut who chose to give a skip to the same.

Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, who will join the inimitable Karan Johar to host the 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards in NY, said the event is going to be a lot of fun as the two have worked hard on the script. Let us remind you that interestingly, Saif was the guest who accompanied Kangna Ranaut on Koffee With Karan during that episode since he was one of the leads in Rangoon.

During the IIFA ceremony at NY on Sunday, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan rocked the stage as hosts. Saif started with a joke on nepotism saying, "You are here because of your pappa (filmmaker David Dhawan), to which Varun immediately replied, "You are here because of your mummy (Sharmila Tagore)". Kjo also jumped in the conversation to admit that he is also here because of his father, Yash Johar.

Nawab of Pataudi raked up the nepotism joke when Varun Dhawan recieved the award for the best actor in a comic role for Dhishoom. Ever since then a LOT has been said and written about nepotism in Bollywood. They sang Bole Chudiyan Bole Kangana from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham but the director cut them in and said, "Kangana nahi bole toh achha hai (It's better you don't say Kangana)". "Kangna bahut bolti hai".
