The fourth season of the very popular chat show Koffee with Karan is back with a bang. As Salman Khan gets ready to take the spotlight on the first episode airing December 1, we recollect the very many confessions and controversies that brewed out of these 'Koffees'. There is something about that coffee, which makes the guests warm up to their host, and open up like never before. Or perhaps, there is something about the host, who has a knack of getting all the skeletons out of their closets. Whatever it is, it thrills us to no end, watching our most favourite stars in their candid best. We love it when they throw caution to the wind and try to be their wittiest best, not knowing that these statements are to create havoc in the days to come. Read on..
So it was season 3 where Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor were at their wittiest best. Deepika had broken up with Ranbir Kapoor and she spoke much about him and his philandering ways, on the show. When Karan asked her to comment about Ranbir Kapoor in the rapid fire round, she said, "Endorse a condom brand". This became an epic statement that caught all headlines. Ranbir's parents Rishi and Neetu were apparently upset with this episode. However, it took time and everyone warmed up to the idea of it being a joke. Ranbir though, took it sportingly and also replied to it on a public platform. He said, "The youth of our country should know about safe sex and condoms, so it is a good thing."
"John is expressionless": Kareena Kapoor
In season 2 Kareena Kapoor and then boyfriend Shahid Kapoor appeared on the show together. When Karan asked Bebo to comment on John Abraham, she said "expressionless". This statement went on to create a rift between the dashing John and Bebo. John's then girlfriend Bipasha Basu had answered her rapid fire in reply to this saying "Kareena has too many expressions". However, the two stars are said to be in a better and cordial relationship today.
Shah Rukh Khan appeared on season 2 with Farah Khan. In the rapid fire round SRK was asked, "Who is the sexiest working actress in Indian cinema today?" SRK replied to this saying, "I think Priyanka Chopra is very sexy." Little did he know the course of things that will unfold for him, and the very high-profile link-up with Priyanka Chopra that was set to rock his world! Watch the video and see for yourself. This particular statement is around the 25th minute in the video.
"Why does she (Priyanka) have that accent?": Kareena Kapoor
In season 3, Kareena Kapoor came with her then boyfriend and current hubby Saif Ali Khan. In the rapid fire round, when asked, "If you were asked to interview Priyanka Chopra, what would you ask her?", Kareena replied, "Why does she have that accent"? Later on Priyanka on a KWK show, replied to this saying that, "I got it from the same place where her boyfriend got it from", indicating that she too studied abroad just like Saif.
However, the two lovely ladies are good friends now, putting all the cattiness behind them.
When Ranbir and Imran rated actresses in terms of sex appeal
In season 3, Ranbir Kapoor appeared with Imran Khan. They were asked to rate their female co-stars in terms of sex appeal. Ranbir rated them as Katrina, Deepika, Priyanka and Sonam whereas Imran rated them as Priyanka, Deepika, Kareena, Katrina and Sonam. When Karan asked them about Sonam being last on their list, they said that they love her and she is more of a classical beauty than 'sexy'. Another interesting statement here was when Ranbir was asked to choose the more stunning woman between Katrina and Deepika, he chose 'Sonam' and evaded the tricky question. Well, we all know the answer to that now, don't we?
We all go through life with many changing equations. However, how interesting would it be to look back on them and wonder at the things we once said or felt. Luckily or unluckily for stars, some of these moments are recorded and sealed forever. These are some of the interesting things said once upon a time, which I am sure they would wish they never said.
"Aishwarya in my arms" : Vivek Oberoi
Vivek Oberoi answered this to the question, "Aishwarya in Hollywood or Aishwarya in Hindi films?". This was in season 1 when he appeared with John Abraham. Vivek and Ash were dating at the time, and broke up shortly afterwards. This was after the famous press conference that Vivek gave accusing Salman of threatening him.
Lot has passed since then to Season 3 when a happily married Aishwarya appeared with her hubby Abhishek Bachchan.
10 on 10 compatibility: Kareena & Shahid
Kareena and Shahid in season 2 got a 10 on 10 for compatibility as Shahid answered all ten questions about Kareena, correctly. Well, proves to show being compatible isn't the only requirement of a relationship, isn't it?
Kareena appeared on Season 3 with her then boyfriend and current husband Saif Ali Khan, talking about their new life, and putting the past behind, rightly so.
"If things don't work out between Hrithik and me, I would rather remain alone" : Suzanne Roshan
Suzanne Roshan mentioned this in the season 1 when she appeared with Gauri Khan. Gauri though mentioned that if SRK found someone else, she would pray to God to have her meet someone else too.
"John loves me a lot": Bipasha Basu
Bipasha Basu appeared with Lara Dutta on season 1. Lara's then boyfriend Kelly and Bipasha's then boyfriend John sent a video recorded message for the two girls. John mentioned in the video how he had loved a particular scene of Bipasha's from Jism. A thrilled Bipasha then mentioned to Karan that John really loved her. Well, maybe he did at the time and the two lovers appeared together on the show too. However, in the last season when John appeared alone, everyone knew that there was something amiss.
Well, so there. Many things said and many things experienced. We got to wait and watch what secrets this season unfolds, and what new real life stories this episode churns up, in the days to come.
