Episode 10 of India’s most popular chat show Koffee with Karan aired on Sunday 2 February 2014 – this time around, Karan Johar’s guests were Sonakshi Sinha and Shahid Kapoor. The two were recently paired together in R…Rajkumar and appeared to be quite at ease with each other.
The episode had several lively, laugh-out- loud moments thanks largely to Shahid Kapoor who came across as playful, funny and interesting. Sonakshi Sinha appeared composed, politically correct and even prim at times – clearly she is not a wild child of the Hindi film industry. But who would be – if they had Shotgun Sinha for a father!
