She further wrote, “Life of nepo insects use parents name and contacts, do papa jo chaploosi to get work, agar koi self made aaye uska career sabotage kardo (nepo kids flatter Karan Johar to get work, they sabotage the career of a self made person), if someone anyone, anyhow survives and complains about continues harassment they face, unko bikau mafia PR se jealous or mad bolke dismiss our discredit kardo… yehi yehi toh tumhari kartootein hain (get the sold out PR dismiss self made people – this is what you do) that I am determined now to destroy you all… one can’t just indulge in the beauty of life when there is so much evil around… Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta says destroying evil is the prime goal of Dharma.”
