Hot coffee, one couch, celebrities and a lot of gossips and secrets. All of these together make up the recipe for a scintillating hour of television. A recipe that director Karan Johar has perfected. Karan Johar’s Koffee with Karan first aired in the year 2004 and became an instant hit with the audience. There was a lot of curiosity revolving around the first season with regards to the celebrity pairings, the format of the show and the topics celebrities would dare to touch on. But soon everybody became familiar with the format of the show and things like the coffee hamper and rapid-fire becoming a part of the daily jargon.
Now this famous talk show is back for its fifth season after a three-year gap. So far the season has been entertaining to say the least and could very well go on to become the best season of Koffee with Karan. This season Karan has managed to excel himself in the celebrity pairings he’s managed to showcase on his couch. Season five opened with Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh raised a lot of eyebrows when he gave the last season of the talk show a miss. But his appearance this time around quelled any rumors of a split between the actor and his director.
Karan even managed to get Twinkle Khanna on the show for the first time. A longtime friend of the director, she managed to steer clear of the show for all these seasons but eventually succumbed. Appearing on the chat show with her husband Akshay Kumar, the couple provided a rare but sweet glimpse into their private life.
Another coffee coup that the host managed to pull off was getting actors Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh on the couch together. The history shared by the two, especially when it comes to a certain leading lady of Bollywood is known to all, making it quite a compelling episode to watch.
Next week his couch will debut Shahid Kapoor with wife Meera Rajput for the very first time. This episode has already managed to create a lot of anticipation, seeing as this is the first time the duo will be seen together on national television. As to what juicy secrets will be spilled? We’ll just have to wait and watch.
