This time the gossips make headway straight from his bedroom. And the charm of the brewing cup of coffee, the comfy couch and the celeb talks remain as inviting as ever. The man who exudes charm and style gets back his guest for the candid moments for the fourth time with a bang. The fourth season of Koffee with Karan returns with a splendid start with the opening episode digging into secrets of the most eligible bachelor of Bollywood, Salman Khan. The man who has made many people skip a beat whenever he has been the roadside Romeo or the lover boy on screen. The frank and forward Salman Khan with his blunt confessions leaves the guileless host Karan Johar hunting for words at times.
The opening episode of Koffee with Karan lets you plenty with all the punch you expected, from baring the rumours making rounds lately to his revelation that he is a virgin who sleeps alone. The blend of carefree with honesty peeps through when he comes bold and blunt about his miffy relationship with Shahrukh Khan and the much hyped tiff that apparently broke between him and the rumored boyfriend of his ex-flame Katrina Kaif.
The episode rightly delivered to the anticipation created and “I am a virgin” went on to become the fodder for the tabloids. The episode gave a digest of Salman’s slew of affairs including Sangeeta Bijlani and the angels of Bollywood. To hand pick a moment of the day was easier said than done…whether the rapid fire round or his comments for the Bollywood king, Shahrukh Khan, moments were galore to flaunt his decent candor. He claims that he respects and cherishes every moment spent with the other Khan if not share a great camaraderie; the Bollywood frippery takes a back seat for a while. The humble actor claims himself as a below average actor too. In fact the Bollywood playboy, Salman Khan was heard as never before, talking about his fears, rivalries, work and love off course.
Salman Khan was humorus, candid, open and charismatic as always. He was indeed at his witty best, not letting go any opportunity to take digs at his rivals, ex- flames and Karan himself. The episode dug into Salman as a family being in a tete-a-tete with his father, Salim Khan, who spoke about his family tie ups, relationship with his step mom Helen and his siblings.
To list a few USPs of the episode:
“I am a virgin who sleeps alone”
“Technically I have never broken up with anyone, because I have never had a girlfriend”
“I think I am very boring and I am a below average actor”
“Me and Shahrukh Khan will not be the best of friends again!”
“I really like Priyanka Chopra..I love Priyanka, she is phenomenal”
“Onscreen kissing isn’t fun”
“Kareena should be a housewife, if not an actor”
“Ranbir is a puppy; Shahrukh is a shark”
“Ranbir is taking away everything – it’s not fair”
