According to the sources, the filmmaker has been consulting his lawyers to make sure that they take the right step against the trolls
In the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, several B-Towners faced online trolling and cyber-bullying after netizens fuelled the nepotism debate.
The crème de la crème of Bollywood such as Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, and others have been the target of a lot of hatred online.
The director-producer, who has been facing most of the unwarranted flak, is now working on taking legal action against the trolls.
According to the sources, the filmmaker has been consulting his lawyers to make sure that they take the right step against the trolls that are threatening him and his family members.
A source close to Karan Johar says, “Karan is actively pursuing legal action. A team of lawyers, as well as online tech experts, have come together to see this through. The tech people in the team are tracking the social media handles that are trying to intimidate him through violence. They want to unearth these accounts, fake and real, and submit the evidence to the relevant authorities. The comments got out of hand when people started to threaten physical harm and abuse to his children and gave rape threats against his mother.”
Recently, we saw Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt take to their social media platforms to call out trollers. Actor Rhea Chakraborty, who was called out names and subjected to abuses, faced a similar situation.
