Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has turned into a nightmare for Karan Johar. Even in his wildest dreams, Karan wouldn’t have thought that netizens would be blaming him for someone else’s death. On June 14, Sushant hanged himself in his room and was found dead at his Bandra residence. On June 15, his last rites were performed in the presence of his family and a few B-town celebs including, Rhea Chakraborty, Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Vivek Oberoi, Ranveer Shorey, Rajkummar Rao, Abhishek Kapoor and Varun Sharma.
Amid all the grief, netizens are hell-bent on blaming Karan for Sushant’s death and now, the hashtag #BanKaranJohar is trending on Twitter. Many netizens have also vowed to never watch Karan’s films ever.
