IIFA 2017: Varun Dhawan shares experience of performing at Times Square

Disha Patani with designers Shane and Falguni Peacock at IIFA Stomp

According to Kangana, Karan Johar was a flag-bearer of nepotism and that he intentionally casts only star kids in his movies, hinting towards his 2012 film Student Of The Year.

Besides Bollywood celebrities, several Hollywood stars, including Angelina Jolie, action star Jackie Chan, Australian pop-star Kylie Minogue, British actor Colin Firth, Hollywood stars Hillary Swank, Kevin Spacey and John Travolta, have also been a part of IIFA in the past.

Yesterday, Varun Dhawan joined the hosts on the stage to receive the award for the best performance in a comic role for Dishoom.

Saif raked up the nepotism issue when he joked that the actor had made it big in the industry because of his father, director David Dhawan. 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.

Out-of-form McIlroy misses the cut at Scottish Open
I haven't been able to put two rounds together, so it's a long way to get four rounds together. He made five birdies during a six-hole stretch from the first to rocket up the leaderboard.

Supporting the two was Karan Johar who too said, "I am here because of my papa", recalling his father and popular filmmaker Yash Johar. Ever since then a LOT has been said and written about nepotism in Bollywood. They also sang the song "bole chudiyaan bole kangana" from KJo's film Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.

But the director quickly reacted, saying, "Kangana nahi bole toh achha hai (It's better if Kangana doesn't speak)". "Kangna bahut bolti hai".

Such sparkling wit, Karan! Many took to social media to point out that the boorish exchange at IIFA proved Kangana's point - that nepotism is alive and thriving. Yes, she wasn't present there, but we know that she triggered that whole nepotism debate when she appeared on Karan's chat show, Koffee With Karan with Saif. He added that she should leave the film industry if she was having so much trouble.
