- "Kangana takes on Hrithik, Shah Rukh and Karan Johar," reads a tweet
- "AIB just roasted everyone including Karan Johar," read another
- "A slap on Bollywood," tweeted another user
In his tweet, Karan wrote: "Dear talent... I wish you would stay away from overconfidence and delusion... they are constantly conspiring against you... don't you see it?" Soon after, Twitter made up its mind. Only recently on popular TV show Aap Ki Adalat, Kangana has mentioned having experienced "stardom" after the success of her critically acclaimed movie Queen, after which she's delivered a blockbuster performance in Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Dear talent ...I wish you would stay away from overconfidence and delusion....they are constantly conspiring against you...don't you see it?— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) September 12, 2017
The Kangana Ranaut vs Karan Johar section of updates began after the actress tagged Karan as "the flagbearer of nepotism" on his talk show Koffee With Karan earlier this year. In return, Karan accused Kangana of playing the "woman and the victim card" and also taken a dig at the actress at this year's IIFA Awards (for which he later apologised).
Here's a glimpse of what Twitter has to say about Karan's tweet being a reaction to Kangana's song. "AIB's The Bollywood Diva song: Kangana Ranaut takes on Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar in this 'vagina' rant," said a tweet while another read: "AIB just roasted everyone including Karan Johar and I'm here for this." "A slap on bollywood! You go Queen," tweeted another user. Kangana has trended on and off for exchanging allegations with Hrithik Roshan, who denies the affair Kanagana claims they had together.

Before you watch, here's how the lyrics sum up Bollywood's sexist attitude towards female stars: "Khub maare maine yahaan aake thumke... aaj jana tum bhi mere baatein sunke" and "Coz I have vagina rey, objectify even my kalaiyaan rey"... is how it goes.
Kangana Ranaut's video is actually part of promotional duties for her new movie Simran, which is releasing this Friday. Kangana also has Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi in the pipeline, for which she's expected to resume shooting after Simran.
