Koffee with Karan – a GMTFO Deepika and a Dharma-programmed Alia

Here we are, finally! The new episode of Koffee with Karan has premiered last week and like the arrival of police in Indian films, we are only now going through it. We watched this episode two times. Not because it was sooo good, but because we kinda lost track the first and started checking out the “Jamal Khashoggi’s killing updates” at the same time while watching the show. Seriously, that had our attention more since it interesting and unbelievable. It was a boring episode with Karan pushing for something spicy to happen. We have to say, though, we enjoyed this episode of KWK better:

 

So, let’s get digging.

Koffee with Karan: Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt

Koffee with Karan - a GMTFO Deepika and a Dharma-programmed Alia

Karan starts off arriving on the sets, in front of the camera, in an attire that looked like he had his 3D printer make for him. You know, like those printers that can print to life whatever it is you want? It’s like he looked at his bathroom curtains and had it made as his suit.

Kebab Jo addresses all of us viewers by letting us know we have made his Kebabs with Karan the longest running English TV show in India. Yes, we, the audience, have wasted a lot of time making Karan rich. Speaking of rich, KJo goes on to say how he is thankful that ‘Baahubali’ became such a big hit. Thankful not because his Dharma Productions made money that they can invest in other film projects, but thankful because he was able to afford a new wardrobe to show off on his Instagram in different awkwardposes.

For some reason, we feel at this point on the show Karan just forgot where he was. He was praising Indian films like if he was hosting an award show or something! Well, can you blame him? He has like a gazillion jobs and at his age, it’s OK to be confused. Or maybe he wanted to bring out ‘Baahubali’ to remind you that he got to produce this epic film series.

Now, he is going on and on about dancing at weddings as if he wants to be hired and paid to dance at weddings. Perhaps, another job on his profession checklist? We can see the ad: To dance at your wedding, call Karan Johar and with him, you will get a bunch of star kids perform for free.

He talks about nepotism, but still nothing about #MeToo. He has nepospasm, which is the pain that you get after taking the burden of launching the kids of Bollywood celebrities. He talks about girl power just to show off how another of his home production, ‘Raazi’, was successful.

Finally, he decides to bring on the two ladies: supremely-talented and gorgeous Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt. So, is it only Deepu that is supremely-talented and gorgeous or is she supremely-talented and Alia is gorgeous? He was trying to kill two birds with one stone here, but only ended up giving Domino’s Pizza the title of their future large pizza.

 

Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone

OK, so what happened to Alia and Deepika? Alia looks a little older while Deepu is just a little slow. You know how any lovely lady who dates Ranbir Kapoor starts looking like he sucked the life out of her? Like Deepu and Katrina did when they were with him? But Alia is faking it with him, so does that mean the effect is double on her?

Deepu is a little slow in a way that she is all chilled and relaxed. You know when you don’t work for a long time, your brain becomes slower and you don’t function like people, who are on their toes the whole time. This is how Deepu is now and on KWK, she looked like she would rather be at home cleaning and arranging her stuffs than trying to mix Kebab and Aloo Paratha together. You can see it in the way she is listening to him and nodding, her slow reactions are the same ways we act when guests come home and don’t leave after 8 minutes. You can say, it’s the GTFO gestures but for Deepu, it’s Get Me The F Out reactions.

Oh and speaking of Get Me The F Out reactions, do you know the Queen of England (yeah, the same one whose battery is still unbreakable – much to the chagrin of her son!) has a couple of signs and gestures that she uses when out in public? Like, if she gets bored of talking to someone, she has a special signal and her people usher her away; something like that.

So, KJo starts talking about the Deepika Bachao campaign. KJo now showering praises on Deepu for the biggest hit of her career, which kinda sounds fake. Well, how else was he going to show off about ‘Raazi’ again? This time, he brings in the figures in profits. Y’all, it’s 120+crore, in case you were wondering! He asks Alia how she felt and obviously, she was going to say she is happy. What else? We all know he will dump her the minute she starts producing flops for him, like he did with Sid. Like if she cares about women empowerment when she knows her Dharma daddy would have thrown her out if ‘Raazi’ had flopped! Aloo actually said she and her filmi papa sat down and discussed how much this movie will make. At this exact moment, KJo turns to Deepu and tells her something and yeah, you can see that she couldn’t care less what was going on.

He probably should have done this and she would have been more attentive:

Now Karan is saying he doesn’t want to talk about the elephant in the room. He means that he doesn’t want to keep talking about himself or his movies. He says he is done praising the girls, let’s move on.

He wants Alia to ask Deepika about the ceremony. And Deepu, being in her dreamy land, asks, “What ceremony? The success ceremony?” Then KJo starts reciting the marriage mantra, which in his voice sounds something like the noise of cow bells – no offence to cow bells. Karan then tells Alia that they are both not invited and Deepu asks if she is invited?! Seriously? You see now what we said about her being slow and all? Now Karan tells out straight out that he was talking about marriage.

Now note that on the day that this episode of KWK aired in India, a few hours or maybe two hours earlier, Deepika and Ranveer released their marriage announcement. The announcement was followed by millions of congratulatory messages and hundreds of news items about it. Was it Deepu’s way of trying to overshadow the episode or was she trying to make more people tune in?

So Karan is now moving on to the party that he helped Alia organised at Ranbir’s house. We kid you not, Deepu is seriously trying to remember that moment. Like, she ain’t entertaining KJo or getting excited by whatever he is saying; she does not care enough to fake it. KJo goes on to ask one by one, how they felt at the party and about the party. Clearly, this season they lacked proper questions to ask and knowing KJo, most likely he had that party organised just to get something to talk about on KWK with these two. Probably, it was at that party that he asked these two to appear together on the first episode of KWK.

Koffee with Karan - a GMTFO Deepika and a Dharma-programmed Alia

 

Alia says that Ranbir, Karan and her were sitting together and started calling people to attend the party. She forgot to add that one of them also did call the paps to notify them. If KJo said it was impromptu, then someone most definitely called the paps. KJo said Aamir refused to come at first then Aloo said something about either Ranveer or Ranbir. We thought it was Ranbir because she said he called her “babe” and she called him “TouTou”, which means dog in French. To us, it made sense that Aloo slyly calls the man with a wandering eye, a dog. But as it turned out, she was talking about Ranveer and the Toutou was probably Tutu, which just means that little dress with a skirt that ballerinas wear. And Ranveer calls her Lulu, which is the sound you make when you talk to babies!

Alia continues saying that she and Ranbir are meeting Deepika after a long time. So you can literally see Karan’s ears grow longer as he sheepishly asks Deepu about it, only to realise that Deepu is slow-thinking that moment. Basically, Karan wanted to embarrass Deepu in some way, just like he did when Deepu said on last season that she was friends with Anushka. Wait, was it last season or the season before that? Either way, it happened on KWK. He wanted that moment again. But come on, KJo/Aloo ki Papa: Time to grow up. Ranbir is not the only man on this planet and neither is he that desirable for women to cry after, though he has managed to make women cry. And with her height, Deepu could literally step on Aloo and all awkwardness would end!

Seriously, though. This question should have been asked if Katrina was in that equation, not Alia. Ranbir did cheat on Deepika with Katrina, so there would have been some awkwardness between them if they were to hang out together. And now, KJo puts the spotlight on him again by saying he has been there to see Deepika handle Ranbir with grace. At this moment, Deepu is wincing, like she is trying to swallow her teeth so that she can stop herself from telling KJo:

 

KJo brings out Deepika’s EQ. We thought it was IQ that he said. But no, it was EQ, as in Emotional intelligence. So clearly, he is saying that whatever happened between Ranbir and Deepika was caused by her being too emotional? Like having too many emotions to control his cheating ways and forgive him for that? Why else would he bring it up? It’s been years, man. Don’t you have new babies to focus on?

He is wondering how Deepika moved on and is this chilled with Ranbir. Well, she went through depression and came out of it. That’s how you act when you have understood why things happened to you the way they did. It’s a sign that you have understood your treatment: acceptance. Alia is looking like she wants to shoot herself in the head, she is literally doing the gesture with her hand!

Karan is like he woke up from a coma. Again, he is asking about how it is to meet Ranbir now. Damn, is he Ranbir’s PR? So many seasons already of KWK and he is so keen to make Ranbir happen. Only he, Neetu, Ayan and Aamir care so much about Ranbir, no one else does. Also, Ranbir and Deepu were together for like two years or so and she has been with Ranveer for many more years. It’s a shame that he is still plugging that Ranbir-thing. Even Ranbir’s hair plugs have changed, it’s time to change that, KJo.

Now he is asking Alia if she felt awkward at that get-together. He phrased it in a way that you would think he was talking about Mahabharat enemies! Again, he is bringing in how they are all working together, like nothing happened. Well, Katrina is going to be pissed that he forgot about her. She was, after all, with Ranbir for like 6 years or so. KJo just erased her and made it look like Alia came after Deepika in Ranbir’s life.

Photo-time

Photo-time now, courtesy of OK Google or whatever that speaker thing is called. This is basically Karan’s ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ moment. You know, when on the show Amitabh says, “Ok Computerji, Rekha answer ko lock kardho”. Yes, the same. We thought he would show us private pictures that none of us saw, but instead pictures from their public Instagram accounts were put on the screen. Like, for real? Why? Did they think that the KWK audience don’t have access to a smartphone or the internet? It sounded like a show and tell session with nursery kids!

KJo is now reading all of Ranveer’s messages on Deepika’s Instagram pictures. Like if these very same comments have not been publicised every time Ranveer comments something on her pictures! Also, KJo might a stalker! Or he is just like the dad or uncle who is questioning the girl on why this boy commented this or that on your picture? At this point, it looks like it is Karan who is in love with Ranveer. And right after this, Deepika asks him if he is jealous? She wants to put up all the lovey-dovey texts on the screen that Karan sends to Ranveer! Karan suddenly acts like a teenage girl and asks Deepika to stop being so busybody between him and Ranveer by reading their private chats! Deepu says, she doesn’t read it, she is shown. This reminds us of the time Kebab Jo used to send the same types of messages to his fave, Fawad, and he and his wife used to have a laugh at how much Karan drooled over him!

Courtesy of Telegraph India

Karan says, he will now censor whatever he writes to Ranveer because sometimes it gets down and dirty. Is this a #MeToo moment happening for Ranveer? Is KJo harassing him?

Now came the moment where KJo had to bring the spotlight again on Aloo and Ranbir. Seriously? It’s like he is just asking Deepika questions to get a chance to ask Alia the same things just to manipulate people into accepting Aloo-Ranboo as a couple! Deepika is just the scapegoat here. Then came the picture that he so wanted to pull up: Alia and Ranbir with their mothers! He sings a song from Salman’s film, the same one where he shot black bucks. Then, he stops abruptly to ask Deepika how she feels about this picture? Damn, KJo! Why not ask directly how she felt when Neetu objected to her presence in Ranbir’s life? Karan tells Alia, “The hand of the mother in a relationship is very critical”. Alia says Yah Yah. Then, Karan bursts out laughing, like a freaking villain about to take advantage of the young girl in front of him! Clearly, he wanted Alia to add more to that but Alia couldn’t bring herself to fake it more than she already has. Hadh to hoothi hai, yaar! There is a limit! And truth to that, Karan puts up a picture of Alia by proudly announcing that she is wearing Ranbir’s jersey. Alia shuts him down so fast that even she got worried she might have offended him and end her Bollywood career in the process!

Why does Alia look like she wants to throw up when KJo brings up how long she has been with Ranbir?

It seems like she has been with Ranbir since RK did that fashion show with Deepu. Maybe after that show, he realised that things are serious between Deepu and Ranveer so he had to find someone else to not look like a loser since everyone saw the way Deepu behaved with him at the show. This explains why everything between Alia and Ranbir happened so fast, without warning. If you remember, there were blind items from MM saying that Katrina asked Alia to spy on Ranbir and report back to her. Then came the rumours and another blind item stated that Alia assured Katrina that there was nothing between her and Ranbir. Suddenly, everything happened. RK’s interview, the public appearances and all that.

On her part, Deepu says she has been with Ranveer for 6 years! KJo ends by blessing them because they have wonderful men in their lives. Matlab, kuch bhi!

 

Blablabla….

Clearly, they have nothing interesting to talk about because they are telling a story about how they had to pee so hard! Ladies, this is a story only your gynaecologist would love to hear! Also ladies, holding pee can result in Urinary Tract Infection, don’t do it if you shouldn’t.

Deepika mentions she is fond of Alia’s sister, Shaheen. Shaheen also suffers from depression. KJo wanted to plug Shaheen’s book, but didn’t happen because Deepika wanted to finish what she was talking about.

Now KJo wants to take them all on a holiday to Maldives. Clearly, he wants to get a free big holiday and then he will have another episode to talk about what they did there.

The Point Game

To sum it up:

Alia is a flirt, has friends with benefits, has been attracted to an already-taken guy, goes for rebound right after breakup and did the dong-dong on a flight,

Deepika can pull off any look, is a flirt, has been attracted to an already-taken guy, has been dumped, has drunk dialled an ex and did the dong-dong on a flight,

Karan is so pissed off that Deepika is not accepting she is getting married soon on the show. He kept pushing until he got something out of Deepu.

 

Rapid Fire Time

Highlight

Holy crap! Like if these people already didn’t have everything, Karan is now giving out an Audi car! Like, what the hell!

 

Surprise question:

Do you know Arjun Kapoor’s girlfriend?

  • Why? He wants to help Arjun come out? Did he forget that he linked Alia with Arjun during ‘2 States’?

Alia:

Lots of blablabla

Courtesy of Telegraph India

  • Alia answers, like a programmed robot.
  • Obviously, lots of Ranbir questions and one Sidharth Malhotra question. Now you know Kiara Advani has gotten herself an entry to Dharma Productions since Alia mentioned she would like to see her dating Sid. Kiara was in Karan Johar’s ‘Lust Stories’.
  • Alia stalks Varun Dhawan on Instagram and she used to check out Ahaan Pandey. So, is Ahaan getting launched by Dharma or something? Well, it’s a good thing that Alia keeps in touch with kids her age, so…
  • Emotional infidelity is a deal breaker for her. So, physical infidelity is fine?
  • Apparently to Alia, Shraddha is lying about being committed. When did that happen? Also, what’s her beef with Shraddha?
  • Also, Alia. You want to pair Sonakshi with Aditya, what the hell?!
  • Alia thinks she looks like a confused little pooch every time she comes out of the airport while Deepika looks like this:

 

Deepika:

Firstly, Karan. Do you think that if Ranveer was a male-chauvinist, Deepika would have dared to accept that on national television?

Ok, when Deepika answers Ranveer, it kinda sounds like Ranbir. Like the best kisser question? We thought why would she say Ranbir, especially since the camera switched to Alia. But, it was Ranveer!

Lots of blablabla

  • She tolerates Ranveer’s fashion sense, like the rest of us!
  • Why is she asked about Ranbir? The same question? What about Sid Mallya?
  • Deepika says Ranbir is emotionless. She has mentioned this before. But if you have seen the promotions of ‘Jagga Jasoos’, you know he has been quite open about showing how much he annoyed Katrina. It was a mixture of being annoyed, angry and fed up. So, he does show his emotions and maybe he didn’t get to be with Deepika long enough to show it off to her.

Also, Deepika. High time you say “you’re worth it because you are Deepika Padukone“. Why not? You have earned it!

 

Singing Time

KJo uses this slot to promote Alia’s singing skills. But seriously though, he had each of them sing the song of each other’s boyfriend. This is some school girl sh!t right here! Come to think of it, it’s a good idea for school girls, antakshari about your crush or love!

Another slot of useless things happening: Gaming Zone

Alia, by now, is hyper ventilating. Blood pressure must be high as well.

 

Thank you for reading:

This whole episode would have been so much fun if it wasn’t connected to Ranbir. Everything just gets back to him. It’s like going in circles. It could have been an interesting conversation, but no..

Alia’s behaviour was a little similar to Deepika when she came on KWK with Sonam. Yes, the same he should endorse a condom brand episode.

We have to mention this since Deepu has laughed like crazy on the show. We had a teacher in school, who once told us that she used to laugh like that when she was younger until the day a lizard from up there somewhere dropped sh!t in her mouth! That was the last time she laughed like that. So every time we see someone laughing like that and every time we see a lizard, we are reminded of that story!

Katrina is coming on the show also, right? It would be interesting to see if Karan will bring up Salman and Ranbir comparisons. And, ask her about Neetu Singh cropping her. If he dares to…

Koffee with Karan - a GMTFO Deepika and a Dharma-programmed Alia

 

This season, Karan has tried to make Koffee with Karan into:

  1. A film-business show
  2. The Ellen DeGeneres show

  3. The Jimmy Fallon Show

  4. The Boring Show!

Karan keeps stressing how it’s girl power, but he forgot how he kept bringing up a man to make these two girls sound relevant. Also, Karan knows Deepu’s fans don’t like him!

By the way: Alia panics quite easily, so you wouldn’t wish to be lost at sea with her. With Deepika, she is at such a calm stage that you can just tag her and will swim you back to shore. No offence to either ladies.

What is the real Alia Bhatt like? She and Parineeti have this girl-vibe going on, like they have not yet matured as women even though they might look like it because deep down, they are still girls.

      Used and abused Ranbir’s name? Is that even possible when Karan and Alia are on the same show and doing that better than Deepika could? Did you even see them crowing and cackling about the “hand of the mother on the relationship” to try to make Deepika feel bad? If Neetu Singh is the Big Prize in this odd relationship, I mean… LOL

  2. naughtytrini says:

    Inside knowledge…Deepika was not intentionally slow, Ranveer and her had a quickie just before she taped that episode and it was so good that she just remained in a daze for the whole show. Nothing gay boy could say about ranbir could have taken my darling deepika out of that state ranveer put her in lol

    Nicely done dear admin. Almost the same that I felt watching this episode. Alia looked different than her previous appearance. Kinda more out there, pushing it to be noticed or just scared of being overshadowed by the aura of Deepika.
    Deepika looked calm, self assured and lil disinterested than earlier appearances. Maybe she knows she’s worth it and KJo can’t take that away from her now.
    Kjo desperate attempts to make it about RK was childish. He’s not even that attractive.

    @Beejeesus That’s exactly what I was trying to point out earlier when I said wasn’t it a little strange that Deepika would specifically choose a certain time to tell the world about her depression and that too in such a manner that it seemed as if it happened due to her breakup with RK, which happened way back in 2009. I agree that she might have gone through depression due to any reason and it happens. But if you notice she brought it up in a way where inadvertently the blame was put mainly on the breakup with Ranbir. Like the media really pumped this up. Also this was around the time when Rankat were kind of officially out as a couple so this confession by Deepika, more than anything showed how terrible both Ranbir and Katrina were, to have done this to Deepika. Deepika has always come across to me as someone very intelligent and not so quick to forgive. She hates Ranbir and finally got even with Kat by putting her in the same situation where Deepika was in 2009 during the making of AJab Prem ki Gazab Kahani. If you recall Deepika’s intense and supposedly oh so emotional statements about Ranbir during Tamasha promotions (when she was already in a serious relationship with Ranveer) was one of the corresponding reasons for Rankat breakup. Even Katrina mentioned that in not so many words in her epic GQ interview. Deepika never was permanently ‘heartbroken’ though ofcourse like she would have been hurt big time by the way the breakup happened with RK cheating on her with Katrina and she catching him red handed. But again didn’t she do the same to Nihaar Pandya, with whom she was living in and who helped her in her initial days in Bombay? There were tons of articles in 2007 of how she was going out with RK while in a relationship with Nihaar and apparently these two guys fought for her. Again her relationship with Yuvraj also ended by her dumping him during the shoot of Bachna Ae Haseeno to give a second shot to her relationship with RK. Deepika and RK dated for a while in 2007 but broke up mainly due to pressure on RK from family and SLB as his first movie Saawariya was about to release and a relationship with Deepika at that point would have been detrimental for his image. They got back again in 2008 though and then broke up for good in 2009. Whatever the point is Deepika is not the bechari she portrays herself to be.

      @Anamika The only comments she made about Ranbir were that they still meet, they’re comfortable and she prefers the relationship they have now (I assume as opposed to the rings he ran around her when they were together or her pain when they broke up). It’s a mature way of looking at things. Where is the bechari in this?

    Do people even remember that Deepika and Ranbir broke up in 2009? That was almost 10 years ago, ancient history, and she still hasn’t stopped talking about it.

    She slept her way through the industry, including Atul Kasberkar, SR K, Bambani, Mallya (bearding junior?), which is a roster that includes married men. But her fans will bash every actress within sight with unparalleled self-righteousness while DP will be the eternal blameless heartbroken victim.

    DP has used her personal life to full measure for getting endorsements. Within 2 weeks of her depression revelation in 2015, Deepika signed endorsement contract with Nike, which eventually paved the way for the Nike campaign to literally spin her depression into endorsement for Nike products, which came right after she got slammed royally for the My Choice campaign. Everyone knows her Vogue covers and eyewear endorsements were courtesy Anaita Shroff (and generous flirtatious relationship with Homi Adajania, which her fans call being in a friendly relationship!). The heart-broken, damsel in distress image plays too well in patriarchal India and her entire career is based on that stereotype.

    DP played that sad, damsel in distress shtick to sell YJHD and Tamasha with full support of the RK-DP shippers. Add to it her depression shtick, which plays so well, fandoms still debate if her depression was because of RK breakup! Had there not been medical science, of course RK would have been 100% blamed for that. Then came the RS-DP are they/aren’t they dating shtick to sell 3 SLB movies. Even through this period, she still kept commenting about RK regularly, to keep the RK-DP shippers afloat. In her entire career in Bollywood, she has been forever in the news for her relationships, but her acting average. By the way, she dumped Nihar Pandya to start dating Ranbir in 2007. I have never seen a more talentless actress being hyped in a way Deepika’s entire career has been, it seems entirely PR based. Aishwarya’s came close but this is a whole different level altogether.

    I don’t ever believe RS DP wanted to keep the wedding details private. If they did, DP would not have appeared on KWK, she does not have a movie to promote so could have skipped it. But there she is on that couch, seeking attention for brands, corporate sponsors, freebies and what not. Her fans must think people are absolutely dumb to believe she is not a famewhore to use any means possible (even 10 year old relationship whose biggest claim to fame was it involved a Kapoor guy) for promoting films or getting endorsement contracts, while they go around blaming and shaming other actresses for god knows what. And now with the wedding, RS fans are also joining the roster to not call out DPs BS because RS will be collateral damage. Let the fireworks begin.

      @Beejeesus, I agree you with you that she needs to stop talking about RK. I know people say its a PR strategy but to me it looks like a really bad one. she gets bashed by RK fans for ruining his cleancut image. she gets bashed by RS fans for flirting with her ex and disrespecting him. she comes across as needy and hung up over a guy who treated her like cr@p a decade ago. i dont think its helped her career at all, YJHD was the outlier neither of their other two fllms did that well…

      the depression thing i dont know, i still think it was pretty brave of her and her intentions may not have been just to get mileage. a lot of people bashed her for that too saying oh you’re rich and successful how can you be depressed and i do think the awareness she generated about mental health, medication, counselling was a positive thing…

      and finally the acting thing now thats a matter of opinion..i actually think she’s a lovely actress especially in the more low-key non-SLB roles so we can agree to disagree on that…

    • Monalisa says:

      @beejeejus FYI: If not shippers RS fans who were his fans since he started in 2010 or pre BM sucess have always been neutral or at one point hardcore shippers (they may have fallen off from the ship wagon but they always have a soft spot for her). The RS fans who bash DP are newer fans of his. Most longtime RS fans may critisize her from time to time but they never bash her constantly. And it is my own rule that I can’t bring myself to bash someone who is close to RS. and I know a lot of people who do the same. It has got nothing to do with marriage.

    • Lucy says:

      I personally only dislike her when she talks about rk,she makes rs look like a doormat.he is a secure and loving person but there is so much a person can take.but hopefully if her production house is successful she will move away from the Bollywood crowd and be independent and I think she is sensible enough not to give rk any mileage after marriage.now that she is going that luv sinha film hope she doesn’t do the tamasha kind of promotions with him.it was forgivable when she was unmarried and had not acknowledged rs relationship.but if she does the same type of promotions of them being Radha Krishna eternal undying love she will receive unprecedented amount of backlash.

      RK was her ticket to be completely accepted by Bollywood Nepo Khandaan whose godfather is KJo. Remember even Ash was never accepted a 100% till she married AB Jr. Akshay also got into the group when he married Twinkle. Marrying him would have cemented her into this gang but it would have been devastating for her on mental level. If she is already suffering from depression imagine having to put up with a man who she can never trust will be loyal and a mil who will encourage that behaviour. Ranveer comes from a regular family and seems like a very caring man. He is definitely better for her. She needs to stop talking about RK unless someone asks her a question about him. Aishwarya for all the flak she gets never talks about Salman. Abhishek never talks about Karishma. That shows you respect your current partner.

  7. Anamika says:

    @leaps @ londonthumakda Yeah right. Must say Pooja Bhatt was a class apart. Recent I was reading those old interviews of hers like way back in the early 90s, and she comes across as someone with a mind of her own and doesn’t mind standing apart from the crowd. I guess she just happened to be way ahead of her times. Even now I don’t find actresses that honest and outspoken unless ofcourse you consider Kangana though with her its more like serving her own purpose everytime. Coming back to Alia she looks confident and makes a little sense only on two occasions – either she is talking about Varun or she is talking when Varun is around. Lol. Her actions and reactions on the show everytime Karan tried to portray her and RK as a couple was hilarious. She reminds me of those typical girls in school who are cute, vacuous bimbettes nevertheless with a huge fan following. Sadly Alia needs to understand her school days are over and she can’t continue being that bimbette any more, if she wants to be taken seriously. Now Alia is no Kareena who was and is really entertaining even though she is the ultimate bimbette, though with a raring personality and a mind of her own.

      @Anamika Alia bhatt is mahesh bhatt’s daughter,pooja and emrans’s sister, she has got kjo to cast her as dad and kjo has arranged her shadi with the kapoor she always had a crush on Alia copies kareena because it appeals to the masses the dum one. dont you think a man like mahest bhatt would have been honest about bw to alai

      Pooja her own sister has said alia is not as simple as people think she knows what she wants and knows how to get it she is having the last laugh at people expense. People on SM dont make majority of bw audience the PR that kjo uses will make sure alia image is cleaned to what it was last year his next trilogy and takt has huge investment riding on alia there is no way kjo will let that go to waster due to one bad move

    These PR relationships are getting increasingly freakish. First PC and Nick, though as of now those two seem to have actually ended up connecting, at least that’s what comes through from their body language and the way they look at each other. As for RK Alia, who knows, worse has happened and these two might also just get into a real relationship soon. When you have been playing a part for almost a year now, and when there’s nobody else around as a prospective partner (RK’s best days are over and don’t think any guy would want to get serious with Alia till she gets serious about herself) that play acting might just mold into the real thing. After all if you look at them they are totally made for each other – perennial kids with a super powerful mentor and a supportive Bollywood fraternity with a powerful filmy family not to mention the lack of substance and depth in both of them.

    Karan dislikes anyone who has made it on their own from outside the industry. Only exception is SRK because he did Karan’s movie despite being a huge star and Karan being a nobody back then. Also Karan does not have the guts to take on Akshay plus he is Karan’s best friends husband. He picks on people he think he can cut down to size but I think Deepika is way to successful and smart to fall for his cunning ways. Deepika has everything at her feet now be it success or love and it is well deserved. She has earned and deserved every bit of it. Actually with RK she dodged a bullet. I can’t believe she put up with the way his mom spoke about her. Does she even now how well bred Deepika is given her dad and the kind of family she is from. RK on the other hand is from has been film family which has more flop actors than successful ones who never saw the gates of college. Anyone who marries him has to be just like him or more manipulative than him. Maybe Alia fits the bill.

    I somehow have a feeling Alia is good person and doesn’t want to get into this dirty game of pulling people down and taking dig at others…However she has to somehow follow what Gurumaiyaaa ( in this case GURUDEV ) tells her to do…I somehow relate her to that girl from the movie Luck By Chance whose life is ruled by her mom Dimple Kapadia ( can’t remember her name )… Alia if you are good actor and have confidence do what you like and don’t blindly follow this culprit… He would soon move to Suhana, Sara and so on.

      Alia is Regina George from mean girls,her mask is slowly coming off and karan and alia are getting insecure about it.she was likeable when she was with varun and faking with siddharth,ranbir is bringing out the narcissism in her.suddenly there is so much hate towards her.after seeing Sara’s teaser I think she will be alias main competition.looks like a woman has very strong screen presence,is supposed to be very filmy as in ranveer varun type of Energy.if she can act she will take alias place soon.alia cannot keep doing the Badrinath type of roles,and in the serious ones like razi she came across as a child.her next films are all ensemble films where someone else might take all the attention away.

      leaps alia acted as bff to sara?when?i didn’t notice.i thought she would be wary of all the girls dharma is launching.kiara advani,manushi chillar,tara sutaria,sara khan are hot and look like women.so she will be insecure of these girls.jhanvi is too plastic and very sheltered baby,doesnt have a strong vivacious personality,very subdued,same as ananya pandey.so these two are not a threat to her.as of now her main opponent is sara.she is the young karishma kapoor,with the filmy energy.slowly will replace alia opposite varun in the dulhania series and david dhawan comedies.and if she acts well in kedarnath which is a dramatic role,she will steal all of alias mature roles.the only roles she will not be able to take are opposite ranbir kapoor as they are related now.he is her uncle.it will be clear by december end if alia is in danger or not.i have a feeling next year will be her last big year and she will be overtaken by all the new ladies.her shortcoming is how she looks.everyone waited for her to grow into a woman,but she still looks 14.both body and face.she did try bikini shoots and glamour in film.it backfired so badly.even if she gets implants and plastic surgery she will sadly never grow up,and because of which she will never be the reigning queen of bollywood.

      I somehow like Sara,don’t know why.there are reports saying she is arrogant and misbehaves with staff,waiters and all.but I have seen her with her mother buing things from street shops and that looks so so normal and endearing.dont know If she is acting and trying to create an image,maybe she has inherited the family arrogance and just pretending.but even if she is I like her more than alia.only a nepo kid can give alia competition and she seems to be the one among the rest.non nepo kids can never match up to alia.i have a feeling if these two films click she will get the two upcoming varun dhawan films,and many more.most probably even get a Sanjay Lela bhansali film that alia has been dying to get.i have a feeling she only agreed to do takht to show it to bhansali that she can do regal period dramas.thats the only thing karan johar cannot buy for her,knowing how stubborn bhansali is.

  14. LondonThumakda says:

    @Admin nice one mazaa aa gaya you hit several nails on the head. esp how karan has just erased katrina from rk’s dating history. like how can he not ask alia if dating her bff’s ex is awkward. then zabardasti plugging that party pic which afaik did NOT break the internet. and the fact aloobir went on overdrive after the fashion show. methinks that is when deepu confirmed the wedding is happening and rk-kjo panicked.

    btw do you think they know people think this relationship is fake? outside of pinkvilla what is the consensus on social media etc? are people buying it? someone mentioned alia deletes negative comments on her insta, does she get a lot when she posts all these mataji ka ashirward pics? are soni and neetu in on it or do they really think they’re getting pota-potis soon…so many questions! 🙂

    • Admin says:

      According to our friends in the media, it’s an early promotion start for Brah – their upcoming film. No one is buying it, but they all have to publish the articles sent by their PR. KJo is the mastermind and Aloo + Ranboo and their families are his puppeteers. Think of it as an investment since there are apparently 3 movies to come out from Brah, they obviously have to sell it well.

        Finally! I was waiting for this one . Enjoyed reading the article. But Admin I don’t get it. Are Ranbir and Alia faking their relationship or are they serious? Because if this is PR why would their families join this drama. Especially someone like Mahesh Bhatt and Rishi Kapoor. Their recent pics in new York where Alia is posing with kapoor family while Rishi Kapoor is going through treatment. Why would they go to this extent especially when Ranbir’s father is sick. I am really confused about these two.

        But Ayan is a good director. If the content is good, film will sell no matter who is in it. That’s the trend now. Instead of fake relationship, if they had shown Rk Alia as besties, talented co actors I think ppl would have been more interested. This drama has caused damage than help. Many who was interested to see Ayan-Rk film now is giving up on it bz the pr is nauseating. Isn’t kjo clever enough to see the damage Admin? I’m sure he is aware of the feedback.

        Lol the moment I saw this article circulating on Twitter, I knew the hate is going to hit here too. This place was free of blind haters but now soon gona fill this place with trash. Rk fans are butt hurt BIG time.

        So if there are any genuine Deepika fans or neutrals who see things for what it is, I’d request them to not engage with the haters and their hate. Let them lament their frustration out, just don’t read their tweets. Ignorance is the best medicine.

        After all we are in the gain right. Everyone thought Deepika is finished when she came back with a bang with a female centric film announcement. And now the wedding breaking the internet. She herself looks so happy, relaxed, unshakeable. That should be our motto as well.

    • nefarious says:

      Seriously, even i wonder whether its for real with the parents being involved. Or is it still a sham for Brahmastra! Also, any idea whats ailing Rishi?

      also does Kjo get commission from the Bhatts and Kapoors to endorse their kids? why does he go out of his way to get movies for both of them? why the dedication?

      • Ananya says:

        This had me thinking too @nefarious. What does Kjo get to go so out of his way?

        Yes it’s business and he’s a thorough one. But there’s an obvious bias in the way he makes film with Rs and treat him and how he makes film and treat Alia.

        I think it will get more clear if he does have a soft spot for Alia or not with how Jhanvi, Sara fair. Sara is already winning sm with her beauty. Alia is in big threat. Both the girls have something she doesn’t have. I don’t mean to objectify either of them but you know how this industry is like.

        What hurt me most about this episode was how Karan admitted in a vulnerable moment he broke down before Deepika about his kids and she kept his secret. Doesn’t that instill some kind of emotional bond bwn them? Don’t Karan have humane feelings? After such a vulnerable exchange how can he go and poke the mumma dig at Dp? Like leave all else, he could have avoided that low blow. It makes him look like Satan, a devil reincarnation. I can NEVER like him, he made it really clear for me.

      kjo like most people in entertainment industry is a narcissist the only thing they care about is “ME”. with his attempts to break up dp/rs with fk/dp blinds, asians paint/mijwan event since last year would at this point do anything to put alia on top because it benefits him and dharma. look at what he did he put alia with dp, ranveer with akshay and finally ranbir with srk. isnt it obvious he is not trying to do.

    • Monalisa says:

      @londonthumukdha I started following Kat and Alia on insta after the whole Aloobir thing. The comments on Alia’s insta pics with RK or his family are hilarious. I don’t know anything about her deleting the negative ones next time will check if she delete them. Mijwan/asian paint/filmfare dubai cover launch was around the same time and it was around Sanju release/promo. Most probably the Aloobir went to overdrive around that time for promotion. Bhatts and Kapoors are film families who knew each other even before Aloobir. I feel really surprised when people use families hanging out together as an evidence to prove it is real. Just because Neetu/ Ridhima hangs around Alia does not prove anything. Around BV release time in 2015, Neetu along with RK grandmom his uncles attended a dinner with Kat and those pap pics were all over the news around that time. We all know how much Neetu hate Kat but for her son’s movie promo she played doting mil to Kat. But later that year when no movie promotion was involved she refused to attend the christmas bash because Kat was there. At this point I feel Aloobir relationship is an arranged marriage of sort.

      @ananya There are two types of people Kjo loves. Successful people and nepo/star kids with film lineage or film familes. Nepos and star kids get his unconditional love and attention (wheather they are flop or hit) but others will only get Kjo’s attention if they are successful. The minute they fail Kjo will throw them out. (The only exception to this I feel is SRK, but that is because when he met SRK he was nobody and SRK was the star). People like RS and DP will hang out with these bolly folks as if they are besties/one big happy family but at the end of the day they know they are not well-wishers. When not working or networking DP and RS still hang out with the group of friends they knew way before they became actors/their childhood friends. I always have a feeling one of the main reason they bonded and got so close so quickly was because they both saw genuine well-wishers and friends in each other… The mum comment was a dig but DP was not fazed one bit. We all saw how Neetu was praising her around Tamasha and YJHD time and how even Rishi wished her on her b’day on twitter and talk fondly about her after her success. She already got a family that loves her unconditionaly in RS’s family (in 2015 she said in an interview she is very close to his family and that they are her family in Mumbai) so she has nothing to prove to the world unlike Alia. It shows how desperate the Aloobir’s are and how pr driven the relatiinship is that the person who has been in a relationship for six years never advertised or posted pics with to be in-laws to gain pr mileage. Over the years we already saw enough candid/fan pics of DP hanging out with RS family and vice versa to prove how close they really are. But they both never used it for pr.

      @LondonThumakda according to fashionscandal alia/ranbir had a short fling with ranbir in 2014 while he was on a break with kat. Alia is an industry kid dont you think she knows the real ranbir She is dating him by choice . if Ranbir is leaking info about his family well through blinds alia is using it directly These two are perfect for each other

      @LondonThumakda this is said to around the same time kat got close to hrithik durning bang bang and knowing how raymond cant take it when his ex moves on he came running back to her and kat also who knows alia might be in love with him she has been yapping on about wanting to marry him since her first kwk appearance

    • lucy says:

      self love,i think after a certain amount of time and age,you need to settle down.not because you want to,but you have to for your parents.ranbirs golden period was until 2013,he thought by stealing salman’s gf he will be able to do the same to anyone.but after besharam everything just went downhill,his career,his reputation,looks,personality etc.all girls are wary of him.he must have thought that katrina will not hit back like deepika when he dumps her because of her past,but she did , in her own sly way.she kind of finished what deepika had started and now ranbirs image and position will not improve from all that backlash.also he has no goodwill among non nepo people.at the moment he is 36,needs to settle down before 40.they did try to get a non industry girl for him,but i think he is too seduced by the idea of having a desirable hot actress wife to settle for someone like mira rajput.and among the current actress no one wants to marry him,they might date him for publicity or films but marriage i dont think so.only available option is alia.he has to settle for her unless a miracle happens and someone like disha patni falls into his lap.just have to wait and watch whether he will marry and have kids with someone like alia just for 3 movies or not.its a “ghate ka sauda”..

    KJo accidentally slipped he was controlling even Alia’s instagram feed when he said “he had to slowly launch into it” when Deepika said Ranbir and Alia with Neetu/Alia’s mom had to be Aloobir’s first picture. RK/Alia is so lame, what do they even have in common?

    And again, during games, when Deepika and Alia incorrectly guessed Varun and Ranveer’s or Alia guessed Ranveer’s and vice versa, KJo blurted out something about Alia/Varun.

    Thank you admin. You are correct in your assessment that this show could have been more than talking about that Raymond. We have two brilliant actors who could have thrown light on the daily workings of the industry, women in workplace, funny things that they might have experienced while working on sets etc. Though I must say Deepika come across a bit verni. She needs to work on her answering skills.Be much more articulate.. May be take a tip from Kangana , Priyanka ,Sonam ( Though I agree that Sonam puts her foot inthe mouth but is articulate) .Alia showed genuine fondness when she spoke about Varun. She looked happy. The first episode was such a turn off . I am not sure about the ratings though.

    Also I wanted to ask you Admin that isn’t it a little strange that though Deepika and Ranbir broke up way back in 2009, yet she kind of mentions that breakup as one of the reasons for her depression which by her statement to Rajeev Sardesai happened in 2014? I mean that’s a pretty long gap… Personally I have always felt she dislikes Ranbir immensely but knowing the power position he holds in the industry she never comes out openly about it except that one time on KWK in 2011.

    • Admin says:

      The cause of depression can’t be just one thing. It is already inside of you and you just need to be triggered. If Deepika had to do the things that many girls had to do to make it, this could be something also. RK did play with her emotionally and messed with her, that’s also another trigger. He does the same thing to every girl, a manipulator. It’s why when you go through things, you need to address it instead of pushing it aside and forgetting about it.

      13
      • Anamika says:

        That I understood but that was not my point. I agree that she might have gone through depression due to any reason and it happens. But if you notice she brought it up in a way where inadvertently the blame was put mainly on the breakup with Ranbir. Like the media really pumped this up. Also this was around the time when Rankat where kind of officially out as a couple so this confession by Deepika, more than anything showed how terrible both Ranbir and Katrina were, to have done this to Deepika. Deepika has always come across to me as someone very intelligent and not so quick to forgive. She hates Ranbir and finally got even with Kat by putting her in the same situation where Deepika was in 2009 during the making of AJab Prem ki Gazab Kahani. If you recall Deepika’s intense and supposedly oh so emotional statements about Ranbir during Tamasha promotions was one of the corresponding reasons for Rankat breakup. Even Katrina mentioned that in not so many words in her epic GQ interview.

      Depression is not necessarily caused by a trauma or sad event in life. It caused by imbalance of neurochemicals. Thyroid disorders like hypothyroidism can sometimes cause depression. Sometimes a person who lived a stress free, happy life with no trauma get diagnosed by it. In some people childhood trauma triggers depression in adult life.
      High-functioning depression and subclinical depression are also a thing.

    I agree there was no originality in this episode. Boring and stilted. But there were a few things that did catch my eye. How Alia seemed so in awe of Deepika. Like so so so terribly insecure. I actually felt sorry for Alia. If she is just faking the entire thing with Ranbir, why did she look that insecure? Poor girl despite all the support from Kjo and the Bollywood fraternity and coming from a film family this is one girl who has never seemed high on confidence, for whatever reasons. Now her sister Pooja Bhatt. She is something though she is also not that beautiful or intelligent. So I don’t think it’s just about being extremely beautiful or intelligent. I guess Alia just lacks personality. Although I don’t like her as such I do pity her. That girl has talent and has ok cutish looks. Sad that KJo literally dictates her life. That atleast was pretty obvious. She herself said it on the rapid fire round too. And Deepika was the same as she has been in most of her interviews since the past 10 years – guarded and politically correct with a hint of sarcasm and a gorgeous smile throughout! I think her last interesting and honest interview was in this same show KWK way back in 2011 a couple of years after that life defining break up with Ranbir. I recall her having said some really sarcastic and bitchy stuff about him, all if which were much deserved, and ofcourse the resulting fracas which ensued haha.

      @anamika No one is saying personality is limited to beauty part of personality development is decision making by your own self, struggling to reach a position this gives one confidence, which shines through,

      Pooja has gone through a bad patch in her life made wrong choices survived and come out stronger that shines through

      Alia well all she had to do was walk in dharma, since thn kjo has taken care of her do you think alia has to sit and decide on something that had gone wrong NO. She only works for dharma, has she ever faced rejected by other production houses i guess NO she hasnt worked with others Alia has never had to deal with the “WHAT IF I GO WRONG/Dam That choice was wrong/rejection/being outed from a movie” in her career hence the insecurity

    • LondonThumakda says:

      @Anamika I know what you mean. Kjo is obsessed with turning her into a glamorous movie star type. that doesnt come naturally to her, she’s not conventionally good looking and i think its making her super insecure..also the flak she gets over nepotism (even aish gave her a backhanded compliment about how easy she’s had it), then people thought she was dumb after that president of india fiasco on kwk. i sometimes really think Kjo is her worst enemy.

      others on this site have said how actually she is the one super ambitious and manipulative…so who knows…but this episode made it clear she is desperate to please karan…she had so many nervous tics on the show when karan said for the first time she’s dating rk the camera panned to her and she was doing this weird thing swallowing really hard (like admin said she looked like she was going to throw up!) and she was practically hyperventilating during the game thing.. prolly becos she knew that was the opportunity to show up deepu who apparently doesnt have any actresses on her phone!

    Aww man, Koffee with Karan. I remember when first I stumbled on seasons 1 2 and 3. I felt like I had found pure gold.
    To see the stars I watched and admired, in such a cool setting, talking about themselves, made you see them in such a different light. SRK for his humor, Kajol for her candor, Lara Dutta for how intelligent she was (on that episode with Mahesh Bhupatti) I remember there were stars I didn’t care for but when I watched how well they articulated themselves, I actually sought out their movies.
    Aamir, Shabana, Smiti Irani, Sushmita and Zoya Aktar were always a delight to rewatch.

    Over time (I am sure the tabloids blew all their comments out of proportion, they became more guarded and seasons 3,4, 5 became a show mostly for the bants of it, and that honestly and humility wasn’t there anymore. I cant even blame them, the industry had become bigger and brighter than ever

    I’m still watching KwK, mostly because I have a hotstar account I was watching AIB on, and nostalgia, plus I am an ardent bollywood (flaws and all) fan at heart, and Karan Johar was my first link to that side of bollywood, so it’s probably the nostalgia.

    It will be nice to actually see more meaningful content, more questions with reason, getting family and friends to talk about the guests (remember those?)

      Alia needs to come on her own. At the beginning of her career, we were a little partial because Pooja Bhatt was a big part of our childhood. But the difference between these two is quite something. Alia is the way she thinks KJo wants her to be. Hopefully, things go well for her because she does not look like she can take rejection. Pooja too started out early and fell in the wrong lane of life for a while. That might not happen for Alia because she has her mother and sister.

    Emotional infidelity isnt this what everyone predictions ranbir alia union to be like an open relationship. Ranbir is in capable of not cheating physically.
    Also compared to how off putting/hyper alia was anyone would look slow

      @leaps My gut feeling is we are gonna get a power couple/it couple kwk episode with Aloobir just to damage control the negativity and backlash the ‘not ok with emotional infidelity’ (which got construed as ok with physical infidelity) caused. Papa Kjo has to damage control Aloobir’s power couple/it couple image and RK’s loyalty image which Aloo ruined with her big mouth. The same thing happened the lastime she got in to trouble with her catty comment against Pari. Papa Kjo got Aloo along with Pari (according to him due to popular demand) more like damage control for the backlash she got for her comment against Pari. Every season after Alia’s debut she has been on Kwk twice each season.

      @monalisa kjo doesnt care at this point whats positive, whats negative considering how cringe worthy and stale kwk is bringing ranbir alia on kwk will get them trp and press but wont change the fact them as a duo are just meh for people they can marry become a power couple but still as a dou just dont cut it as a pair. if they appear again she will present another fake poise version to look the kapoor bahu just like she in kwk first time. they will continue alia/rk non sense till ppl just get used to them. The message that kjo wanted to send was alia is dp’s equal and wiped kat from ranbir list of gf’s has been sent

      by now everyone can tell alia persona is extremely fake she is competitive but hell of a bitter sour loser. one fav kjo can do to her is stop forcing her to look the part there are pics where she is literally contorting her body to emphasize her body to look sexy while dp is just standing there without effort looking sexy.

    • LondonThumakda says:

      @monalisa what did she say about pari?

    • leaps says:

      @LondonThumakda in her first appearance on kwk alia suggested pari needed a stylist she got a backlash then kjo made alia/pari to appear in on kwk a bff’s . Alia usually passes such comments on ladies who have a hit e.g pari needs a stylist after ishqzade, kangana’s airport looks after queen, forcing words into kats mouth about kriti on bff’s with vogue after barlie ki barfi, shardha on her commitments on this episode after stree

      • Ananya says:

        Omg leaps and all of those ladies flopped after Alia bitched ahout them. Pari, Kangana, Kriti….

        Shraddha has a hit after so long. And then Dp. Hope her bura nazar doesn’t work on these two. Talent or not, Shraddha seems a harmless girl.

    • Lucy says:

      Ananya,alias Bura nazar works only when karan and alia are able to lure them in by promising big films that get shelved,Pari rejected piku because she was supposed to do two dharma productions that never happened.kangana flopped due to her own mistake of harping about hrithik when she should have promoted the film.and she is downright rude to everyone.sushant was doing well ends up doing a dharma production that is shelved now.if shraddha stays away from karan she will be safe.kriti is trying to get into dharma,doing a item song in kalank.things will get bad for her If she doesn’t get away from both of them in time.

    • leaps says:

      @Ananya lucy is ryte you will see a pattern with kjo and his other minions usually they are glued to anyone who gets a hit or at that time was seen as a competition ranbir was glued to imran, fawad and recently kartik btw did kjo not kartik was promised a film with dharma and rk/kjo got luv rajan to cast him while guess what who is no where kartik.
      lucy has pointed out alia pattern so anyone who isnt a part of club kjo must be very very vary of them especially outsiders considering kjo is see as the dream launch pad for star kids all their parents and insiders will be more thn happy to throw anyone under the bus to get into kjo’s good books for the sake of kjo’s starpariwar film launch

    alia seemed so insecure of deepika like she knows she can’t match deepika but trying so hard

  27. hama says:

    i can’t believe admin you missed it when deepika said ayan is a constant or when she said to alia it won’t happen for a while lol what a shade or when alia was trying to show how chummy she is with ranveer by that tutu lulu thing deepika outed her that zoya calls him that ….. & yeah when alia was comparing her fake relationship with deepveer saying their was boisterous but her was not deepika said our is a long one then kjo quickly covered alia lol

    17
    • hama says:

      lol one more thing you missed when karan was talking about that alia katrina deepika sharing same gym & asked if they meet lol deepika again said 3 & the ones came in between lol shading RK again after that only ayan is constant & it won’t happen for a while. even Ranveer in his episode was also shading RK when he said during rapid fire that RK has many more talents outside bedroom too

      • Admin says:

        Them working out at the same gym is common knowledge. There was once when Katrina just started being with Ranbir, she reached the gym only to find out that Deepika was in there. She choose to stay put in her car and waited until Deepu left to go in. We thought everyone knew that.

    The show format is outdated. Bollywood can’t hide in a bubble while the country and its billions of people have real problems. Kjo is losing the plot, his questions were boring and to deepika they were just mean. Deepika looked amazing and could care less. She knows what kjo is and can see right through him. That hamper was hers and he knew it. Kjo will pay ranveer 20 cores a movie but would never offer deepika the same or half cause she’s a woman. He can get alia for peanuts and hype her as the big thing.. but she isn’t anything without his support, and this show made it even more obvious. In trying to mock deepika, they made themselves look like fools.

    That show is just crap n trashy promote n celebrate nepotism. Kjo is indeed movie mafia in Bollywood. Did anybody see his kids they are not 1% of kjo forget 50% this guy just so obsessed with beauty n light skin made me feel sick on his mindset even after I own have light skin still believe brown n golden skin Indian are look more beautiful.skill remembered when I was kid used to watch jhashi ki rani laxmi bhai on zeetv wanted to have skin color of mannu(child girl who play character) she has such spark n karishma which light skin like me lack.this kind few disguised mind like kjo give bad name of India called skin obbessed with light skin which totally no so true.

    • Pooja says:

      *correction Still not skill,called India obsessed with light skin.

    • Rashmi says:

      absolutely. This show has long been outdated, they have been discussing the same thing for many years. Is it still relevant / interesting? I can’t even read quotes from this show and the guests of this mess are not at all interesting to me. I just noticed that Karan began to suck up to akshay. He used to hate him, but something changed. Now Akshay is a frequenter for coffee, even working on the Johar movie. but in the recent past it was not so rosy

      Karan low key dislikes Deepika too, mostly because she is still honest about her opinion of Ranbir and they are not what KJo wants to hear. KJo has his own agenda for Ranbir-Alia and Deepika is seemingly constantly ruining that. But Karan cannot not call Deepika on his show as she is the most beloved in the country right now, so he will suck it up and call her. Only benefit is that Deepika is not going to directly be rude like Kangana Ranaut, she’s got more tact. No, not tact really, actually she is more prone to play it safe and timid until you really piss her off. Then you might see thinly veiled remarks. lol. She is a south Indian, after all.
      It’s the same with Akshay, I think. Karan doesn’t think he is all that, but he has had hit films and his wife is that hypocrite, so he has to.

    I don’t think Deepika was slow. She just couldn’t care less. Also when she said,” what celebration? A success celebration?” it was because she didn’t want to chalk out her plans to the entire world. Alia came out as super insecure and bitchy while Deepika came out as a person who’s become a wide old owl with her experiences, more power to her. KJo should be slapped for being so silly, he’s like Kim Kardashian, no substance all show Sha.
    Also what was it when Deepika gave a warning to KJo when he talked about Deepika having babies?

      Totally agree ! Dp was asked tough questions… Alia was awarded on a platter…. Literally.. .fed! Alia looked highly insecure and dp held herself with utmost poise … it made one thing very clear that there was clear cut partiality! Poor dp was tolerating !

Its hilarious jaanvi just one film old that too flop after such huge promotion n Sara not even debuted how can they came as current leading actress in Bollywood???

      • PSG20 says:

        Kjo is extremely cunning… Yup he made sure heads and tails both went to alia… There was one point dp was shaking her head in disagreement …when she showed pic of Ranveer … she knew shes going to lose outright … And when finally they sat on the couch kjo told the other gift was meant for dp…. Hahaha so the questions with alia were pre-planned and well fed…. yeah Plus this call your contemporary was so cliche.. despite dp telling clearcut this isn’t my phone which I use for professional purpose.. .
