Why is Sanjay Gupta comparing himself to Karan Johar?

The Shootout At Wadala director passes the blame of being ‘inspired’ by Hollywood films to his friend-turned-foe Sanjay Dutt, and rues about the lack of star support enjoyed by colleagues like Karan Johar

“I had to make my films with a star. Maybe a Karan Johar can make a film without a star because he is the star of his projects. But I needed star support. And we all know who’s the star (read Sanjay Dutt) I made most of my films with. Yes, I stuck to one star and that star only agreed to do my films when I offered him Hollywood remakes.”
