Karan Johar’s showstopping talk show ‘Koffee with Karan 7’ will soon premiere exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar and th3e buzz around the popular celebrity chat show is phenomenal.
Already there are countless speculations about which stars will appear, who will be paired with whom, what is the latest “game” Karan will unveil to keep his guests and his millions of fans and followers engaged.
‘Koffee with Karan’ is a guilty pleasure of celebrity gossip, witty banter, nasty roasts and quirky games and so much more and over the last six seasons Karan Johar has managed to keep fans of the show thoroughly entertained with his sometimes honest, sometimes brutal, but always funny chat with the best of the best celebrities and all the big names of the entertainment industry.
Recently, there were reports that the first episode of Season 7 will kick off with two big names in Bollywood, Karan Johar’s lead pair in his upcoming directorial, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ – Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
The two actors are Karan Johar’s firm favourites and have been a part of this show in the previous seasons as well. In season 6, Alia came on the show with Deepika Padukone, while Ranveer Singh accompanied Akshay Kumar.
In season 7 too, there are rumours that Akshay Kumar will once again appear on the show and the latest buzz is that this time the co-guest along with him on the show is South star and ‘Family Man’ actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been making headlines for a while now. She was married to Naga Chaitanya until recently and theirs was a love story that was much-adored in the Telugu movie industry. Their break up was a shocker but since the two have separated, Samantha has been making waves across Indian cinema in general and she is well known in the Hindi film industry as well.
However, her pairing with Akshay Kumar is most unusual. The two have not worked together on a movie, and the most interaction they have had is when they shot for an advertisement together. Given that it is Samantha’s first time on the show and Akshay’s first time sharing the couch with a relative stranger, it will be interesting to see if the two guests manage to find the necessary camaraderie or whether it ends up being awkward with both not being able to be as candid and honest as they would otherwise have been.
The other confirmed guests on the show are: Vijay Devarakonda and Ananya Pandey, Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan; Kajol with her mom Tanuja. ‘Koffee with Karan 7’ will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on July 7, 2022.
