Karan Johar, the renowned filmmaker and host of Koffee With Karan, recently took to Instagram to deliver a crucial message to those who had been trolling Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh for their candid statements on the show. During a live stream on the social media platform, Karan expressed his thoughts on the episode and had a sassy response for the trolls.
He began by acknowledging the chatter surrounding the controversial episode and directly addressing those who had attacked it. “Do what you need to do because no one’s looking,” Karan stated, firmly asserting that such trolling serves no productive purpose. He emphasized that their criticisms were falling on deaf ears and had no impact, saying, “Trolling gets you nowhere. You are landing nowhere.”
Karan also revealed that he pays attention to constructive criticism from social media users and is actively making necessary changes to the upcoming episodes of his talk show. In doing so, he demonstrated his commitment to improving the content based on valuable feedback while ignoring the less constructive noise generated by trolls.
For those who might be unfamiliar with the context, Deepika Padukone stirred up headlines when she hinted at the nature of her relationship with Ranveer Singh before he proposed to her. She shared, “I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said ‘I just don’t want to be attached, don’t want to be committed.’ And I had fun. And then he comes along, so I didn’t ‘commit commit’ until he proposed to me. There was no ‘commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other.”
Karan Johar’s response to the trolls serves as a reminder that constructive criticism is valued, but senseless trolling achieves nothing. It’s essential to engage in healthy discussions and debates while respecting the personal choices and opinions of public figures, just as he is striving to make his show even better based on constructive feedback.
