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.
