So are they rivals but also friends, or are they enemies pretending to be friends? At the end of last night’s episode of Koffee with Karan featuring Parineeti Chopra (her first time on the show) and Alia Bhatt (her second time in this season) I am still now clear what category of ‘Frenemies’ the two young actors belong to.
Highlights of Koffee with Karan– (6 April Episode 19, Season 4)
Parineeti Chopra came on the show carefully gowned and carefully coifed – it was clear she had been taking seriously, the fashion criticism leveled at her. Parineeti made it a point to say that she wanted to appoint Alia Bhat as her stylist – said this more than once. While denying any involvement with Manish Sharma, she declared herself eager to fall in love and be in a relationship. She also declared her long-term devotion to Saif Ali Khan.
She came across as earnest, sweet and a wee bit ingratiating, as though she isn’t yet quite sure of her place in the film industry and was anxious to make a certain impression. She kept clapping her hands a bit too much and kept collapsing upon Alia in a fit of laughter – she did this so often as to be noticeable. Wonder why…
Alia Bhat dressed in a characteristically glamorous off-one-shoulder black gown and deliberately casual pony tail, seemed rather more self possessed. She was very much to the manor born, in a sense, and her composure and confidence probably stem from the fact that she has grown up in the film industry with a father like Mahesh Bhat. Alia also declared herself single and ready to mingle, while at the same time indicating a great tendre for Ranbir Kapoor.
The highlights of the Parineeti-Alia episode included little vignettes from Priyanka Chopra and Mahesh Bhatt as well as previous show guests choosing between the two actors. Parineeti won the hamper and the trivia quiz (Alia was once again rather lost when it came to GK). If it sounds like an episode you think you may enjoy, here is the full episode of Koffee with Karan featuring Alia Bhat and Parineeti Chopra:
