Yet, Karan faced the ire of Shah Rukh supporters on Twitter on Friday after some eagle-eyed Bollywood fans noticed that the filmmaker had liked an abusive tweet targeting King Khan. This was after a Twitter user mockingly wrote while commenting on the box office collections of Akshay Kumar’s just-released Kesari. He wrote, “Half day colls (collections) of #kesari on Holi day (which is worse than pre Diwali day) > #ZERO full festival day collections.”

He then used an abusive term to address Shah Rukh and questioned his stardom in comparison with Akshay Kumar.”

The tweet gained considerable attention on social media after some Shah Rukh Khan fans noticed that Karan had liked the abusive social media post targeting the Bollywood superstar. Although Karan later unliked the tweet, it was too late. Shah Rukh supporters launched a Twitter hashtag #ShameOnKaranJohar, which had become a top trend on Twitter.

At the time of writing this report, hashtag #ShameOnKaranJohar was trending at number 5 position across India.
