- KJo will co-judge India's Next Superstar with Rohit Shetty
- Karan Johar's first guest on the show is Priyanka Chopra
- Our heart is big, our house is open to all, says Karan Johar
The first celebrity on the show is Priyanka Chopra, who says in the promos that the show will give many artistes to show their talent and the right platform. Like Priyanka, Kangana is also a self-made star and has been very vocal about the Bollywood politics of nepotism.
When Karan Johar first tweeted about the show, the tagline of which is "Na Khaandaan Na Sifaarish," the Internet accused him for "looking for an image makeover?" Just before announcing his participation in the talent hunt show, Karan had announced the title of Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor's debut film. Speaking to PTI, Karan Johar said: "I don't think this tagline was an answer from my side to anything. Lot of people want to be part of the entertainment industry but it is difficult to find a platform. We are providing this platform to all those who are talented."
Why doing this drama. Thousands of strugglers must be visiting you daily. You never gave them any chance but just launched star kids.looking for an image makeover?— History is Mystery (@im_yyk) November 17, 2017
Karan Johar last directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and is currently producing Janhvi's Dhadak and Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's Brahmastra.
