Karan also gave an interview to clarify that he didn't believe in nepotism. He said,"This is something that I need to say and to clarify. Of course, I do not believe that nepotism rocks. Of course, I believe that only talent and hard work rocks. What we said was meant to be a joke, and I think it was misplaced, misunderstood and I think it went wrong. I regret it.

Outrage on Twitter made it clear that the fans didn't find 'the joke' tasteful. While the discussions about nepotism were still quite strong, Saif shared some light on how it all begins. He explained nepotism while talking to a leading daily giving his son, Taimur's example.

He also added, "When he's 18, the press themselves will launch him. So where does the nepotism start? The producer is just an opportunist saying 'okay, let me market this'."
