At the recently held trailer launch of ‘Liger’, which Karan has also produced, he fielded questions on the trolling episode. Addressing the issue directly, he denied supporting Janhvi over Sara and said, “That’s completely untrue. Infact I was feeling bad because Janhvi lost the Rapid Fire and the Game round, too. So, it was just a process of being nice towards her and everyone read it wrong.”
Karan went on to add that both Janhvi and Sara are on an even keel when it comes to his affections. He said, “I love them both dearly. They both are not only wonderful artistes and girls, but they are kids I have known since they were barely three years old. So there is no question of bias. Not with them, never.”
Social media users had speculated that Karan’s behaviour towards Janhvi was far more protective than it was towards Sara. But Karan’s explanation has addressed those speculations without any room for further conjecture.
