KJO RE­GRETS HIS ‘JOKE’ ON NEPO­TISM

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Film­maker Karan Jo­har has clar­i­fied that his now in­fa­mous “nepo­tism rocks” slo­gan at a re­cent awards show was “mis­placed, mis­un­der­stood”. In an in­ter­view with a lead­ing news chan­nel, he said, “I don’t be­lieve that ‘nepo­tism rocks’... If [there’s] any­thing that rocks, it’s your tal­ent, hard work and con­vic­tion. It’s the en­ergy you bring to your job. What we said was meant to be a joke, which I think has been mis­placed, mis­un­der­stood and I think it went wrong. I re­gret it.”
