Kiara Advani designers rejected her for not being famous except for Manish Malhotra; Actress also defends Karan Johar over nepotism debate

Kiara Advani recently in an interview revealed how Manish Malhotra came out to be the only designer who didn’t turn her down for not being famous. The actress also defended Karan Johar from the nepotism debate.

The actress was recently joined by her Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 co-star Kartik Aaryan, as they appeared for the interview with Film Companion. Kiara was specifically asked about the Manish incident, to which she replied that certain people reach a stage in their life and they feel like they need to be an exclusive brand, only for exclusive people.

She continued, “Manish is one of those people who never looked at it like that. He never looked at it like, ‘I’ll give somebody something because they’re successful’. Even Karan.” She added that she is aware of all the hate the filmmaker has been receiving but she feels its not accounted for as she was picked by the filmmaker when she was “a nobody” and “nobody told him to.”

Kiara has worked with Karan in several projects such as Kalank, Good Newwz, Guilty, Shershaah, and her upcoming movie Jug Jug Jeeyo is also backed by Karan’s Dharma Productions.

The actress will be next seen in Bhool Bhulaiyaa opposite Kartik, which also stars Tabu in pivotal role.
