Season 6 of Koffee with Karan was a rather pleasant surprise. Even the beginning was far better than usual as host Karan Johar delivered a less haphazard, less forced and seemingly heartfelt opening monologue to introduce the episode and his guests for the night, actor couple Ajay Devgn and his wife Kajol.
Karan exhausted no time in bringing up the infamous and very public fight he had with Ajay’s wife Kajol a couple of years back. He said that though he wrote in his autobiography that he would never be friends again with Kajol, it turned out to be a lie. He spoke with great affection for his best friend Kajol, remembering the first time he met her and how she would make fun of his outfit choices.
Karan then discussed their fight two-years ago and how they had stopped talking with each other. Ajay’s film Shivaay and Karan’s film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil were set to clash at the box office in 2016. Ajay had accused Karan of bribing film critic Kamaal R Khan to publish negative reviews for Shivaay. After their public spat, Kajol also took her husband’s side and said that she was shocked at what Karan had done. The film director was hurt by her tweet and decided to break ties with her. He even wrote in his book that she is nothing to him anymore.
Karan and Ajay then discussed Kajol’s fixation with taking selfies and editing them for social media, her habit of never buying anything expensive and how she is always happier with kids or the elderly. “She has never done this in her life and I don’t know budhaape mein aake...,” Ajay said about Kajol’s new interest in taking pics. “Tumhara budhaapa hoga, mera toh nai hai,” she said, rolling her eyes at him.
During the show Ajay said that the one superstition he believed in was that Karan’s film starting with K are also says lucky at the box office but Kaal turned out to be a flop. When asked which actor of the current generation would look good paired opposite Kajol, he said “As a son?” Kajol screamed, “Kutte, kameene! Joota...” she said while pointing at her shoe. Karan warned her that she can’t say that.
When asked the one lie everyone says in Bollywood, Ajay said “I love my wife.” Kajol showed him her irritated eyes and said “Ghar jaana hai?” Ajay said he was talking about the other men.
Even with all his burning answers, Kajol ended up winning the hamper.
