Varun Dhawan apologised for mocking actress Kangana Ranaut

Vastavam web: Actor Varun Dhawan has apologised for mocking actress Kangana Ranaut in wake of the nepotism controversy.The 30-year-old actor took to Twitter to express his regret on taking part in a joke at the recently concluded 2017 IIFA Awards ceremony, which refuelled the debate that had become a bone of contention between Kangana and filmmaker Karan Johar earlier this year.Johar and Saif took a dig at Kangana when Varun joined them on the stage to receive the award for the best performance in a comic role for “Dishoom”.

Saif raked up the issue when he joked that the actor had made it big in the industry because of his father, director David Dhawan.Soon, Johar joined them and said he was in the industry because of his father, filmmaker Yash Johar. The trio then shouted, “Nepotism rocks”.Saif and Varun then sang “Bole chudiyaan” from Johar’s film “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.” But the director twisted the second part of the song to take a potshot at the actress, saying, ‘Kangana nahi bole toh achha hai’ (It would be better for Kangana not to speak).
