Naga Chaitanya was present at an Amazon Prime Video event held on Thursday in Mumbai. Karan Johar hosted the event. Before presenting the Telugu-Tamil web series 'Dootha' (fronted by Chaitanya), the host invited the 'Bangarraju' actor onto the dais. While inviting Chay, KJo used grand monikers like 'Superstar' and 'Megastar'.
A video clip in which KJo is seen adorning the 'Love Story' actor with the bombastic titles is going viral across social media platforms. While Chaitanya is one of the most popular actors in Telugu, he is no megastar. But KJo wanted to give a huge build-up for effect.
The avoidable over-enthusiasm on his part is inviting mocking laughter from Netizens. They are saying that Karan Johar wants to appease Telugu stars in the era of pan-Indian cinema. He has already onboarded Vijay Deverakonda into his camp with 'Liger'.
