There has been an intense debate on nepotism in Bollywood since the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Due to this, netizens started targeting big movie makers like Salman Khan, Mahesh Bhatt, Ekta Kapoor, Yash Raj Films, Karan Johar and others.
People even trolled various star kids like Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ananya Panday, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor and others mercilessly on various social media platforms.
Of all the celebrities, Karan Johar is being trolled the most on social media for various reasons.
Recently his close friend had revealed that Karan has completely broken down due to this online trolling. He said that Karan even started crying while talking on the phone.

#KaranJohar's PR working overtime. Karan, it's not hatred or criticism. It's us calling you out on the wrongs you have done. As #SonamKapoor says, it's karma. #SushantInOurHeartsForever #DilBechara #SushantSinghRajput #SCOrderCBIForSSR

Karan’s friend told that Karan has broken down
A close friend of Karan Johar, in a recent interview given to a website, said that Karan cries badly whenever someone calls him. Although he has become immune to internet trolling and has developed a thick skin after these many years, this time he is shattered completely as he is being held responsible for Sushant’s demise and people are saying very nasty things to him and even his family members.
He says, “Karan is a broken man. After being trolled for years he thought he had developed a thick skin. But the brutal hatred that he has received after Sushant’s death has left him shattered. It’s the fact that those close to him are being attacked that makes Karan feel really guilty. His 3-year old twins are getting death threats.”
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on 14 June. After this, Karan also shared a post about him with a photo of him and Sushant. In the post, he wrote that he blames himself for not being in touch with Sushant in the last few years.

I blame myself for not being in touch with you for the past year….. I have felt at times like you may have needed people to share your life with…but somehow I never followed up on that feeling…will never make that mistake again…we live in very energetic and noisy but still very isolated times …some of us succumb to these silences and go within…we need to not just make relationships but also constantly nurture them….Sushants unfortunate demise has been a huge wake up call to me …to my level of compassion and to my ability to foster and protect my equations…..I hope this resonates with all of you as well….will miss your infectious smile and your bear hug ….💔💔💔
Even then, the users trolled Karan and said that he is shedding fake crocodile tears.
