Shah Rukh Khan jumped to Karan Johar’s defense after the filmmaker found himself at the receiving end of brutal trolling on Twitter after he appeared to ‘like’ a tweet comparing Kesari and Zero’s collection figures recently.
SRK rescued Karan with a LOL tweet.
Karan Johar’s explanation of the matter evaluated it to be a “technical problem”,
while “#ShameOnKaranJohar” quickly made it to the list of top trends on Twitter India after netizens pointed out that a tweet which refers to Shah Rukh Khan in offensive terms have been listed under Karan Johar’s ‘liked’ tweets.
The tweet is no longer available on Karan Johar’s timeline but fans of Shah Rukh Khan are sharing screenshots to troll the 46-year-old filmmaker.
The tweet in question claims that half-day collections of Akshay Kumar’s recent release Kesari turned out to be higher than that of Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero
and follows it up with offensive comments which are too vile!.
Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Kesari released turned out to be the highest opening film of 2019 with a score of Rs. 21 crore on day 1.
Zero, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, had made just a shade under on its opening day in December last year.
