Recently, Karan Johar found himself in a soup when he accidentally liked a tweet which abused Shahrukh Khan while praising Akshay Kumar. A user called Mannu Yadav read, "Half day colls [collections] of Kesari on Holi day (which is worse than pre diwali day) [is] greater than Zero full festival day collection." The tweet further compared Shahrukh and Akshay Kumar's stardom with expletives in his tweet.
Within no time, screenshots of Karan's 'like' went viral on the internet. Shahrukh Khan's fans started brutually trolling the filmmaker on social media and within no time, #ShameOnKaranJohar ended up as one of the top trends on Twitter.
Now, Karan Johar has clarified the truth about the 'like' on that nasty tweet and issued a clarification about the same on his Twitter page.
