Nayanthara Fans Upset With Karan Johar, Accused Him Of Throwing Shade At Her On Koffee With Karan 7

Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee Karan 7’s latest episode saw two superstars Akshay Kumar and Samantha Ruth Prabhu rant about their personal and professional lives. The hour-long episode saw the Family Man 2 actress indulge in compelling conversations about her career, growth, and even divorce with actor Naga Chaitanya. But one particular exchange she had with host Karan Johar has not gone down well with some fans. Recently, Nayanthara fans accused Kaan Johar of casting shadow on Samantha’s co-star Nayanthara on the show.

At one point in the show, when Karan asked Samantha who she was the biggest female actor in the south right now. Referring to her recent release Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal, the actor said, “Well, I just made a movie with Nayanthara.” The Kushi actress suggested that she thinks Nayanthara is the biggest actor in the four film industries in South India. Karan thinks otherwise, however, when he replied, “Well, not on my list!” He then further referred to a recent list, released by Ormax Media, of top female actors in the country with Samantha as the number one female actor in the country.

This has made fans of the Aramm actress angry with the filmmaker, who said that Karan Johar “cast needlessly shadow” Nayanthara.

As reported by Hindustan Times, the exchange was shared on various social media platforms. A comment on Reddit read: “Isn’t Nayanthara super well established like Kareena or PC level in the south? Yeh Karan ka problem kya hai Bhai (What’s Karan’s problem)?”

Many said Karan’s quick denial of Samantha’s compliment was rude and disparaging to both actors.

Fans of the Love Action Drama star even pointed out that Karan’s next production Good Luck Jerry is actually a remake of Nayanthara starrer Kolamaavu Kokila. Pointing to that, one fan wrote, “KJo, I hope you realize that your Good Luck Jerry remake is a remake of Nayanthara’s movie.”

Some fans have even claimed that Karan is often passive-aggressive about the Southern film industry and their actors. “Why does he always sound so jealous of the southern film industry? Even before the blockbusters, he was very passive-aggressive,” one comment read.

While some Reddit users were angry with Karan, some Redditors simultaneously defended the Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham director by saying he only mentioned the Ormax list, but admitted it was weird how he chose to do it. One social media user wrote: “He was referring to the Ormax list where Samantha was first so he was trying to say Samantha is taller than Nayanthara which is also weird as she is actively trying to compliment Nayanthara.”

Born Diana Mariam Kurian, Nayanthara has been one of the leading female actors in the Tamil and Telugu film industry for many years. She has also often been featured in lists of the highest paid actors in the country. Over the years, the ‘Lady Superstar’ has spawned blockbusters such as Billa, Simha, Arrambam, Iru Murugan, Bigil and Annaathee. Not only this, Nayanthara has also delivered several female-led hits including Maya one of her notable films. The actress is currently shooting for Shah Rukh Khan co-starrer Jawaan, which will hit theaters in June 2023.
