Episode 8, Season 4 of Koffee with Karan featured Akshay Kumar as the guest. This time it was the guest who grilled the host Karan Johar and asked rapid fire questions. It was a rather combative Akshay who wanted Karan to have a taste of his own medicine. Get the highlights of the Akshay Kumar episode here.

The 8the episode of Koffee with Karan, aired last night on Star World. It featured something of a coup in that Karan Johar finally managed to get superstar Akshay Kuman on to his infamous couch. Wearing an ensemble of sober grey and sporting a stubble, Akshay Kumar loped on to the set flashing his customary crooked-toothed grin. He was introduced as the Survivor Superstar and as the Man of the Millions and the Man with the millions.

Akshay Kumar’s combative response to the question – suggesting that it is all Karan Johar’s fault that people don’t want to be on his show – set the tone for the rest of the show. The host was seen to parry the challenging thrusts from his guest – constantly on the back foot; for a change it was Karan Johar who seemed to be in a defensive position, seeking to explain himself and the premise of his chat show.

Koffee with Karan – Highlights of the Akshay Kuman Episode

  • Akshay Kumar seemed to be in a rather militant mood – he informed Karan Johar that no one likes to be grilled; no one wants to get into a controversy. After being on this show, the guest invariably does get into controversies and has to spend time apologising and explaining themselves to others
  • The guest seemed keen to grill the host – Karan Johar felt that it was like being on Arnab Goswami’s show, where one was hardly given a chance to speak by The Newshour host
  • Akhay’s wife Tina declined to be on the show because she has a habit of speaking her mind and thought she would get into trouble
  • According to Akshay someone else who is just as frank and forthright is Anil Kapoor and he proceeded to relate an anecdote that illustrated the veteran actor’s bluntness
  • According to Akshay, being at a party for half an hour is more than enough – parties are not for him
  • Akshay is an early riser and believes mornings are for work – he believes in the old adage jo raat mein jaagte hai woh ullu hote hai (those who are awake at night are owls or stupid)
  • Akshay Kumar may not have received too many awards, but he has had the reward of his hard work
  • The worst thing that Akshay Kumar has been called by critics is “furniture”
  • In a glamorous industry, surrounded by beautiful women, how difficult is fidelity? Apparently not difficult at all for devoted family man Akshay, even with his Casanova past
  • Priorities change and all he wants to do is get back home to his family and kids
  • Akshay’s wife Tina was Karan’s first love. It was she who urged him to run away from their boarding school
  • Tina had told Akshay that she would marry him if her movie Mela flopped
  • Akshay felt good when he heard what Salman Khan said about him
  • When asked about feeling competition from other actors, Akshay replied that there is no competition; we’re not horses
  • Akshay is a consummate card fixer by his own admission
  • Leading ladies such as Kareena Kapoor, Lara Dutta, Shraddha Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha as well as Ekta Kapoor came on the show to speak about Akshay Kumar
  • The most irritating thing about Akshay’s his wife is that she is always right
  • Someone who needs a stylist as well as a gym membership is Sajid Khan
  • The episode featured an interesting section when the guest turned the tables on the host and subjected him to a Rapid Fire round

This was a rather different than usual episode, in that the guest seemed hell bent on ensuring that the host heard some candid home truths about himself. For Akshay Kumar fans of course, this episode of Koffee with Karan is a must watch as he seemed to get the better of Karan Johar several times in the show.
