Karan Johar apologises for hurting Assamese sentiments

Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar who is currently seen judging India’s Got Talent has often shares fun videos on social media called “Toodle”. But recently, Karan Johar apologises for one of his recent video.

Karan Johar apologises

Yes, Karan uploaded a video clip on his Instagram profile on November 10, shot during India’s Got Talent TV show.

In the video, Karan is seen asking Kirron about the jappi (a traditional conical hat from Assam) that she is wearing. When quizzed, Kirron stated, “People from Arunachal Pradesh have brought it for me and they have got this for you. Why are you not wearing your hat?” Then Karan quipped, “Because you have guts, I don’t.”

Taking things a bit more insensitive, Karan then told Kirron that she is looking like someone who is going break into some kind of qawwali. “How can I break into a qawwali in a bamboo hat. What’s wrong with you? You don’t know the states of this country,” Kiran questioned.

As soon as the video goes viral, people criticise him disrespecting the cultural sentiments of people from the Northeast.

A Twitter user questioned Karan’s motives for hurting the Assamese sentiments via Twitter. He tweeted, “Dear @karanjohar the Japi and Gamusa are signs of respect and love. When someone gifts you one, you don’t make fun of it, even if it does not go with fashion. Your video hurt the emotions of #Assamese people. Just informing, in case you didn’t know it already. @KirronKherBJP,” and added, “Dear @ColorsTV, when you provide such things to your judges, it would make sense to educate them about the importance of these objects, in case they don’t know. Signs of respect aren’t meant to be made fun of. This will be on, cos this was your set. @KirronKherBJP @karanjohar.”

Karan Johar apologises

Karan soon deleted the video and issues an apology on Twitter and wrote, “You are absolutely right and I would like to apologise if I have hurt any sentiments… was purely unintentional and came from a place of no knowledge which is absolutely no excuse….am extremely sensitive to the different cultures of our land and I am very sorry… Also, have deleted the Insta post!”
