Karan Johar has revealed why he quit X, formerly known as Twitter.
Talking for the first time about his decision, Johar told Mid-Day, “That quitting Twitter was an instinctive decision I made when I started reading abuse to my children. When that happened… this is the lowest you could get. Abuse me, say what you want. They also abused my mother. My mother is still an older person. My children were five at that time, when I took the decision. Now, I’m not going back on this platform for anything.”

Asked if the abuse relating to nepotism in Bollywood was another reason why he left the micro-blogging site, Johar said, “It’s not that I’ve stopped casting people from the industry. Or I’ve isolated myself from the sheer wonderful-ness of Alia Bhatt. I have not listened to anyone. I’ve just left a platform. That had nothing to do with the things I was saying. It was about my kids. I couldn’t read that.”
