Ram Gopal Verma on nepotism opens up in support on Twitter. He refers to Karan Johar as a “bigger victim” and goes on to elaborate nepotism as only a part of the social structure.
It’s like if you have your own family business, you’d prefer handing it over to your child rather than going out in the market in a hunt for fresh talent. Similarly, in the Bollywood industry, familial attachment comes first.

Ram Gopal Verma on nepotism further explains that there’s no existence of an outsider-insider concept in the industry. If such a thing does exist, it has been chosen by the audience, alias, the general public, which films they prefer to see and like.
It’s us who decide on the scale of success of a film and hence, talent. No “big” man in the industry has the power to take control over the choice of an audience. If Sushant Singh Rajput was an “outsider” then the Bachchans, Khans, and Kapoors, too, have faced the outsider zone before making it big in this industry.
Ram Gopal Verma on nepotism further says in his tweet, “Nepotism, when spoken on a negative view is a joke because our entire society is based on only the concept of loving one’s family; something like you should neither love other’s wife more nor other’s children.”
Karan Johar, too, takes to Instagram, to post his regret on not keeping touch with Sushant for the last one year. He writes in his post, “We live in a noisy and energetic, yet isolated environment at times. Some of us give in to the silences and go within. We need to nurture the relationships that we make, too.”
One of his fans, tweeted in his favour, saying that everyone has flaws but let this change in Bollywood’s toxic culture start here itself, with Karan Johar.
