Film-maker Karan Johar says actress Kangana Ranaut's remarks about him promoting nepotism in the film industry doesn't hold true for him, adding that she made "sweeping statements" to make an impact.
Kangana, known for her brazen honesty, took a dig at Karan when she appeared in one of the episodes of his chat show Koffee With Karan. She called him the "flag-bearer of nepotism" in Bollywood.
Karan expressed his views when a social media user, during a live chat session on Twitter, asked: "Was Kangana correct about nepotism?"

Now, Karan hopes that he gets to spend a year without offending anyone.
