By Devyani Sharma

As per a list of top ten best Bollywood publicity magnets published on the Bollywood Publicity website, Indian celebrity director-producer Karan Johar attracts way more public attention than famous actors like Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

In the list, Karan was positioned at the fourth position while Priyanka and Akshay were positioned at fifth and tenth respectively.

Justifying Karan’s position, the website wrote, “It isn’t surprising to see that Bollywood’s biggest ‘star maker’ enjoys a ‘star-like’ celebrity status himself. In his career spanning over two decades, Karan Johar has provided Bollywood with some brilliant and unforgettable films. Apart from his films, KJo is famous for his television appearances and dressing sense. His unapologetic glamour coupled with his sassy remarks always manage to garner media attention. May it be his autobiography The Unsuitable Boy or his talk show Koffee With Karan, he always attracts controversies.”

Karan’s position in the list clearly indicates that a good online and on-screen presence (though on television) is more than enough to make it to the headlines regularly. Karan’s sassy personality coupled with the controversies that follow him make sure that he always attracts public and media attention.
Apart from Karan, Priyanka and Akshay the list contained celebrity names like Salman Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Ranveer Singh, Neha Kakkar, Arnab Goswami, Sushant Singh Rajput and Urvashi Rautela.
