Happy to be hosting IIFA 2017 after long: Saif Ali Khan

Disha Patani with designers Shane and Falguni Peacock at IIFA Stomp

Saif Ali Khan, Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan has hosts of IIFA 2017 made quite a few jokes about the film industry and yes Kangana Ranaut wasn't spared too.As the trio took a dig at the Queen of Bollywood at IIFA stage in NY. However, this young hero is unhappy even after receiving this award.Varun Dhawan desperate to act in Baahubali-3 Going into the details, Varun after bagging his award had asked the co-host Karan Johar if he has any chance of acting in Baahubali-3.

Yesterday, Varun Dhawan joined the hosts on the stage to receive the award for the best performance in a comic role for Dishoom. Saif said, "You are here because of your pappa". She had referred to Johar as "the flag bearer of nepotism", which had not gone down well with the director.

Fast forward to the weekend where the hosts took an outright jab at Kangana's comment by constantly chanting two words, which were "Nepotism rocks..."

Supporting the two was Karan Johar who too said, "I am here because of my papa", recalling his father and popular filmmaker Yash Johar. They also sang the song "bole chudiyaan bole kangana" from KJo's film Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Karan quickly replied saying, "Kangana naa hi bole toh accha hai... Kangna bahut bolti hai". Many took to social media to point out that the boorish exchange at IIFA proved Kangana's point - that nepotism is alive and thriving. This year, the hosts nearly mercilessly took a dig at the infamous nepotism debate which was started off by the feisty Kangana Ranaut right on the couch of Koffee With Karan, where she tagged Johar the flag-bearer of nepotism.

While Karan remained silent on his show, he later hit out at Kangana when she wasn't around to rebut him - during a chat with the students of London School of Economics in March.

Another Facebook user accused Kangana of overusing her women card.
