Koffee With Karan, India’s one of the popular celebrity talk show hosted by director Karan Johar became an overnight hit when it was first telecasted in 2004. In 2016, the show entered into its 5th season. It has been so popular, that it is often considered to be an Indian version of the popular talk show The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The first episode of the first season invited Bollywood’s dream couple and director Karan Johar’s best friend Shahrukh Khan and Kajol. From then on, there was no looking back for this show.
With its 5th season and innumerable episodes, we have picked up 10 episodes which we think are the best of Koffee With Karan.
- Shahrukh Khan and Kajol
No price for guessing, but this is when the show began and the duo gave the perfect start to it. They were witty, humorous, candid, and yet poised which gave the show a grand TRP on its first day.
- Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor
Deepika and Sonam appeared on Season 3 of Koffee With Karan and this episode is one of the most controversial of the season. The usually polite Deepika was blatant and politically correct in the episode while talking about ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. Sonam was equally vociferous about her tiff with Shobhaa De.
- Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor
The Season 2 featured Shahid and Kareena, who were dating back then. They were everyone’s favourite couple and they looked perfect together on the show. On the show, they were candid about their feelings for each other.
- Bipasha Basu and John Abraham
The duo was seeing each other when they were invited on the talk show. They were completely at ease when they talked about each other. Bipasha was very sporting when she was asked about her tiff with Kareena. John, being the dedicated boyfriend, supported Bipasha throughout the show.
- Emraan Hashmi and Mahesh Bhatt
Inviting the nephew-uncle on the talk show was a welcome change. Mahesh Bhatt was in his witty-intellectual self and Emraan Hashmi forgot Rajkumar Hirani’s name and ended up calling Aishwarya Rai “plastic beauty” which made the show a worthy watch.
- Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranbir Kapoor
That was perhaps the first time when cousins Kareena and Ranbir, the latest generation of Kapoor came together. Moreover, there were lots of Katrina Kaif queries asked by Kareena and Karan to Ranbir which made the show interesting.
- Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna
The “Miss Funnybones and Khiladi of Bollywood” couple appeared on the 5th season. As usual, Twinkle was at her wittiest best talking about her wrong choice of movies to talking about his husband.
- Farah Khan, Rajkumar Hirani and Imtiaz Ali
This was a treat to watch with Bollywood’s three directors on the couch and another as their host on the talk show’s 3rd Season.
- Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan
Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan appeared on what is so far the funniest of all the Koffee With Karan episodes.
- Nargis Fakhri and Freida Pinto
Both the actresses were the surprise element on the show as they funnily and wittily answered every of Karan’s rapid fire questions.
