Amidst the recent criticisms and controversies surrounding him on social media, filmmaker Karan Johar has taken to Instagram to praise veteran actor Zeenat Aman’s ‘real’ posts. Aman debuted on Instagram in February and has since been sharing old and new photos from her life accompanied by eloquent captions. Johar, who has been sharing cryptic notes on his Instagram Stories, praised Aman for being “everything Instagram is not! Real…vulnerable and so damn honest!”
Johar has been facing backlash on social media following old reports of his rumoured tiff with Priyanka Chopra and an old video in which he spoke of his attempt to sabotage Anushka Sharma’s career. Despite the accusations, Johar has stated that he will not be weakened by them, writing on his Instagram Stories, “You can pick swords, but they will not kill me.”
Actor Kangana Ranaut, who has been a vocal critic of Johar, linked him to Chopra’s recent interview where she spoke of being ‘sidelined’ in Bollywood. Ranaut accused Johar of ‘harassing’ Chopra to the point where she had to leave India. She also alleged that Johar had banned Chopra from working in Bollywood.
Meanwhile, Aman’s Instagram timeline has been praised by fellow celebrities like Kajol for being a treasure trove of memories and thoughtful captions. In a recent post, Aman remembered her late co-actor Parveen Babi and discussed their uncanny resemblance and how they were often pitted against each other in the 1970s.
Despite the controversies and criticisms, Aman’s Instagram has been a source of positivity and authenticity for her fans.
