First season of 'Koffee with Karan' closes with Big B, SRK

MUMBAI: Over the past six months Star World's chat show Koffee With Karan has seen the host film director Karan Johar asking questions some of which left his celebrity guests uncomfortable while others have left them wanting to talk more.


Now the final episode of the first season airs tonight 27 May at 10 pm. It is in the fitness of things that the episode will feature the two biggest stars of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan. It promises 90 minutes of unadulterated fun, laughter and mischief.



Whilst talking about his struggling days, Khan states, "I remember when I was first introduced to Juhi Chawla, her reaction was eeks…he is not like Aamir Khan, he is brown and scruffy and his hair is all wrong." He further adds, "GP Sippy actually told me that my hair is like a bear". The discussion becomes even more interesting when the two superstars talk about their take on product endorsements and the pros and cons of being a superstar.

In the second segment of the finale, Karan invites veteran director Sanjay Leela Bansali who shares a special bond with Big B and SRK. While talking about the success of Black, Khan says, "It is one of the finest movies I have seen in the past few years. After so many years, I actually felt like touching someone's feet and I touched Amitji's feet."

Koffee with Karan is never complete without the 'feared-but-loved' rapid fire round. Johar makes this round bigger and even more exciting. Adding a twist to this clash of the titans, Karan invites directors Bansali, Farah Khan and Farhan Akhtar to judge the winner. Says Farah Khan, "I want both of them in my next movie, so I am going to be extremely tactful".
