A couple of days ago Karan Johar generated a lot of drama around the announcement of his latest season of ‘Koffee With Karan’.
He first posted an announcement on his social media stating that he won’t be returning and ended his statement with an ellipsis.
Later he posted another announcement and completed the ellipsis to state that ‘Koffee With Karan’ will not be returning on TV, but it will be exclusively available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar as part of ‘Hotstar Originals’.
Now, it has been confirmed that the first guests on his show will be his ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ co-stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
While it’s always entertaining to watch Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, fans will be disappointed, as they wanted to see Alia and her newlywed husband Ranbir Kapoor together on the couch.
Likewise, it would have been interesting to see Ranveer and his wife Deepika Padukone together. Nevertheless, when its ‘Koffee With Karan’, there will still be plenty of fireworks, controversial banter and lots of humour in the show.
As per a report in a news portal, Ranveer and Alia will be kicking off the seventh season of the chat show and the shoot for the same is scheduled for May 10.
Most likely, the reason for this pairing is that it plugs in promotion for Karan Johar’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’. It also would have been the most convenient scheduling as all three are working on the movie together.
Getting their respective partners on the show would have been a logistical nightmare, as Deepika is soon jetting off to Cannes and Ranbir is busy completing his various projects.
Even so, since Alia Bhatt is on the show, fans will get to hear more about the hush-hush yet dreamy wedding, as well as Alia’s soon to start Hollywood project and Ranveer will no doubt add to the entertainment with his inimitable histrionics.
