Her story reads, “Data suggests that Amazon Prime Video is doing way better than Netflix in India maybe because they are much more open-minded and democratic when international head visits India they don’t park themselves at a fading 90s director’s infamous party but meet everyone who is contributing to them… Last I heard Netflix’s head was not able to understand the Indian market… Well, the Indian market is not just one bitchy gossipy nineties director…. There are hundreds of talented people here.”
Thalaivi actress further went on to criticize ace filmmaker Karan Johar without naming him and took the context of the recent party hosted by Karan for Netflix Global Chief, Bela Bajaria. which was attended by many Bollywood celebrities. The guest list included Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Farhan Akhtar, Shibani Dandekar, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Sara Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon, etc.
