Did Varun Dhawan just support Kangana Ranaut in her nepotism war with Karan Johar? Has Varun fallen out with KJo? - are the only kind of theories doing the rounds on the internet ever since Varun spoke in support of Kangana at the Jagran Cinema Summit - Future of Cinema yesterday. But let's get this straight - neither has Varun looked down upon his mentor Karan or has he spoken highly of Kangana. All that he's said is that Karan and Kangana both have their own valid arguments and that one needs to respect their opinions and stop complicating things further.

First he stood up in Karan's defense saying, "Who all has he (Johar) launched? Star kids only, right? So how is it an allegation? It is a fact, right? However, he has also launched a lot of directors also, like Shashank Khaitan, who is a dear friend. He is from Nashik and he had nothing to do with films. He just gave his script to Karan and Karan wanted to make a film with him. Karan has also made a film titled Gippy. He launched a girl with that too. Sidharth (Malhotra), he is also not a star-kid, but Karan launched him also."
And then when he was asked to comment on Kangana's accusations against Karan and the entire film industry" he said, “So, what Kangana (Ranaut) is saying is right, but this whole thing is too blown up. I think she was trying to get her point across in her way, but people really stretched it too much. Such things happen in the fraternity!"
Probably Varun doesn't wish to take sides and get into trouble. He seems equally confused in his head because it's like he's contradicting his own statements by defending Karan and also standing by Kangana. No wonder he had even apologised after trolling Kangana at the Filmfare Awards. Guess that's how Varun chooses to be.
We can see a grin on Kangana's face after seeing Karan's protege slyly trying to defend her! Your thoughts?
