Kalank's Aira Gaira: Twitterati dubs Karan Johar a 'hypocrite' for breaking promise to never use item numbers
Karan Johar has been dubbed a hypocrite by Twitterati for featuring Aira Gaira in Kalank despite pledging in 2018 that he would never showcase item numbers in his films anymore
Kalank's newest song 'Aira Gaira' has created quite a furore on the internet, with Twitterati calling Karan Johar a 'hypocrite'. The song features Kriti Sanon, who is dancing in the midst of Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur, surrounded by hoards of men.
Back in 2018, Karan Johar had apologised for featuring 'item numbers' in his films and pledged never to include one in a film made under the banner of Dharma Productions. "An item song is when she is objectified and when there are men lusting for her like 'Chikni Chameli'. I don't think I would ever do that again. It's never gonna happen in a Dharma Productions film and I will make sure of it."
Netizens have quoted Karan's earlier statements and dubbed him a hypocrite.

“The moment you put a woman in the centre and a thousand men looking at her lustingly, it' s setting the wrong example. As a filmmaker I have made those mistakes and I will never do it again,” he said while in conversation with She The People -Karan Johar #AiraGaira pic.twitter.com/QoMjcWV5FB — .

Money does matter above all principles I guess
