in a recent live stream on Instagram, Karan Johar, the host of Koffee With Karan 8, responded to the online backlash against Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s recent episode. The celebrated filmmaker had a few choice words for the trolls who took to social media to criticize the couple’s statements during the show.
Karan Johar, never one to shy away from a bit of sass, expressed his perspective on the matter. He advised the trolls to “do what you need to do because no one’s looking.” He further emphasized that no one is listening to them, discouraging them from their negative endeavors.
“Trolling gets you nowhere. You are landing nowhere,” Karan said, taking a direct shot at trolls
While acknowledging that constructive criticism from social media users is heard and appreciated, Karan firmly stated that trolling is a fruitless endeavor. He vowed to make necessary adjustments to future episodes based on the feedback he has received but made it clear that he won’t be swayed by the negativity from trolls.
For those unfamiliar with the episode in question, it featured Deepika Padukone sharing insights into her relationship with Ranveer Singh.
She revealed that before Ranveer’s proposal, they were in an open relationship. She explained,
“I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said ‘I just don’t want to be attached, don’t want to be committed.’ And I had fun. And then he comes along, so I didn’t ‘commit commit’ until he proposed to me. There was no ‘commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other.”
In addition to Deepika’s revelations, the episode attracted attention when viewers noticed Ranveer Singh’s changing expressions while Deepika talked about her past dating experiences. This led to speculation and discussions on social media.
Karan Johar also hinted at the upcoming second episode of Koffee With Karan 8, revealing that it will feature siblings. While he didn’t confirm the guests, many have speculated that it could be Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
In a world where negativity often dominates online discourse, Karan Johar’s response serves as a reminder that constructive criticism is valued, but trolling only falls on deaf ears. It’s a call for a more respectful and supportive online environment.
