Karan Johar, the host of the popular talk show Koffee With Karan 8, has slammed trolls of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. In a live stream on Instagram, Johar said that he has heard all the chatter around the episode in which Padukone talked about her relationship with Singh before their engagement, and that he has turned a deaf ear to the trolls.
“Do what you need to do because no one’s looking,” Johar said. “Trolling gets you nowhere. You are landing nowhere.” Johar added that he has heard the constructive criticism from social media users and is making the necessary changes to the upcoming episodes.
“For the unversed, Deepika made headlines after she hinted that she and Ranveer were in an open relationship before he proposed to her,” Johar said. “She said that she wanted to be single for a while and that they were not technically committed to each other until he proposed.”
Johar’s defense of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone is a welcome change from the usual celebrity response to trolling. Instead of ignoring the trolls or getting into a fight with them, Johar has simply dismissed them as irrelevant. This is a mature and intelligent way to deal with online abuse, and it is a message that other celebrities should take to heart.
Ranveer Singh’s expressions came under scrutiny after Deepika Padukone confessed on Koffee With Karan 8 that she didn’t remember who she was seeing at the time when she was casually dating him. Many social media users interpreted his reaction as upset, and there was a lot of chatter around the moment.
Meanwhile, Karan Johar revealed that the second episode of Koffee With Karan 8 will feature siblings. Many speculated that it could be Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. It is interesting to note that Ranveer Singh’s expressions have garnered more attention than Deepika Padukone’s confession itself. This could be due to the fact that Singh is known for his energetic and expressive personality. It is also possible that some people are simply curious to see how he would react to Padukone’s confession.
