The chat show featuring Karan Johar known as Koffee With Karan premiered its 5th Season on Star World on 6th November, 2016. Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan were the first guests on the show.
Also, it turned out to be a matter of sheer coincidence that both of them also happen to feature on Gauri Shinde’s film, Dear Zindagi which is produced by Karan Johar.
As expected, SRK displayed his quick wit and humor on the opening episode and Alia carried on with her spontaneous response.
Not only this, Alia displayed her sporting nature and participated in the quiz held on the show. Can you recall her disastrous performance in this show during the last season where she was unable to answer simple questions related to general knowledge. Well, she aced the quiz this time with flying colors.
Moreover, in the first episode Khan seemed to appear slightly awkward while trying to draw humor out of his age. He seemed to be a bit conscious around Alia Bhatt.One of the most awkward moment in the show was when he said that he would readily agree to star opposite to Alia Bhatt in the Indian version of 50 Shades of Grey.
Another threesome joke about SRK joining Alia and Katrina in ‘bunny-hopping’ didn’t come out meaningfully and fell a little out of place.
The real fun part in the show was to watch Alia dodge questions about her relationship and her rumored affairs with Siddhart Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.
In the end, the 23-year-old Alia Bhatt claimed her status as single. She seemed to enjoy it to the extent that she would not go on a date even if Ranbir Kapoor asked her out for a date. Charmingly, she said. Oh, dear Zindagi.
The firsts guests have surely set the bar high for other celebrities. In the next episode, it would be fun to see how Akshay Kumar goes about in the show along with his wife Twinkle Khanna.
Season 5 of Koffee with Karan is telecasted every Sunday at 9 pm on Star World and Star World HD.
