The 19th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) 2018 has parnered with the UN Environment and the goodwill ambassador of India, Dia Mirza came up with an amazing tagline ‘If you can’t reuse it, refuse it.’ She was talking in terms of plastic and how it harms our environment and Karan Johar was right next to her during the press conference and made the tagline his own by adding the word ‘talent’ to it, which was indeed impressive as well.
Karan said: “This IIFA brings so much ‘gorgeousness’… And there has always been a social relevance… So, thank you Dia for what you do. When you say, ‘If you can’t reuse, refuse it’, I hope you are also talking about talent.
“And that is the way most of us believe when it comes to talent. If you can’t reuse the talent, then refuse that talent.” Karan, 46, stressed that it’s the way any producer in the film industry operates. Known for movies like “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham..”, “My Name Is Khan” and “Student Of The Year”, Karan had last year sparked a controversy as the host of the IIFA Awards in New York when he made a comment on the nepotism debate raked up by actress Kangana Ranaut.This year, he is back to host the gala.
On the work front, Karan Johar is producing Student Of The Year 2 and the movie stars Tiger Shroff along with debutants Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria.
