Your favorite celebrity chat show Koffee with Karan is back on air with season 5 and the first episode sure was a fun peek into the exciting times to come.
Koffee with Karan
While talk shows of this genre are available a dime a dozen, Koffee with Karan still retains its chutzpah. This is mainly due to the camaraderie between its host, the affable Mr Johar and the top celebrity guests. And Episode 1 of season 5 was no exception. On the couch were none other than the Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan and the young generation’s blue eyed girl, Alia Bhatt. And despite their age difference, these 2 sizzled on the couch like a house on fire.
Read on for a few snippets from the super entertaining hour-long chat.
Of Love…and Possibly Lust!!
Alia cleared the air about her relationship status on the show, denying any link ups with either Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan or Arjun Kapoor. While she did admit to having first kissed at age 16 (to which SRK commented he would rip the lips off any boy who attempted to kiss his 16-year-old daughter, Suhana!!) Alia said she is currently taking a break from relationships.
Shah Rukh too had his own bit of rumors to dispel, especially about his ties with KJo, but SRK being SRK, might have only added fuel to the fire by talking about their dressing room stories.
All About Films:
Though the actors were promoting their upcoming film together, Dear Zindagi, to which references were made throughout the show, there was enough discussion on their other current and past projects to keep you engrossed.
Shah Rukh said ‘I want to figure out my own cinema’ referring to the fact that any of his movies, while each being brilliant in their own way, have never been looked back on as ‘the best film of the generation’. So watch out for a lot more from this multi-talented actor.
On being asked whether she feels threatened by competition, Alia said she feels secure about the place she is at and is really happy with the body of work she has done as well as her upcoming movies. She also dispelled rumors about frosty ties with Sonam Kapoor, saying that her performance in Neerja (popularly considered the best female performance of the year) was outstanding, but also went on to add that she will be offended if she did not win an award for Udta Punjab.
Rapid Fire Rages:
Possibly the most awaited section of the show, the rapid fire with SRK and Alia did not disappoint! Shah Rukh, being in his element won the round as well as his viewers’ hearts, with his witty remarks. His impersonation of Arnab Goswami really took the cake!
He also managed to poke fun at Alia, taking a jibe at her general knowledge in the show’s last season which made her the butt of jokes for a long time to come.
Alia redeemed herself by winning the next section – a ‘pop culture’ quiz, though SRK gave her stiff competition even there (by knowing what moobs are!!)
If the fun quotient in episode 1 was anything to go by, you should definitely tune in to Star World every Sunday at 9PM. Coming up next are Miss Funnybones, Twinkle Khanna joining with the superstar husband Akshay Kumar on the infamous couch!
Meanwhile, we wish Shah Rukh and Alia all the best for their upcoming film “Dear Zindagi”!!
