Filmmaker Karan Johar holds a special place in the hearts of newbies of Bollywood Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor and Ananya Panday. He launched Janhvi Kapoor in Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, Sara has been roped in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba and Ananya will be debuting in Karan’s production Student of the Year 2.

Karan seems to have full confidence and faith in these upcoming actresses but which one is his favourite? Recently, he was asked which of the three newbies showed the most promise by Happy Bhag Jayegi fame actress Diana Penty on Karan’s radio show Calling Karan.

Karan somehow managed to jiggle out of the tricky situation by saying, “Oh god! now that’s a tough question. How am I to answer that? They are three young new talents and I definitely think all three have bright careers. I don’t think that’s a fair question to ask me, Diana.”

Earlier Karan was accused of being the “flag-bearer of nepotism” for favouring star kids. However, at the trailer launch of Janhvi’s Dhadak, he said that people do not realise that these star kids have to work doubly hard to “go beyond their name and make an identity of their own”.
