One of the most successful and well established names when it comes to direction as well as production, Karan Johar has been a man who has always been in the news.
His claim to fame were several of his movies, but he became a major public figure when he started off with his TV show many years ago – Koffee with Karan. Over the past several years, many celebrities including the who’s who of Bollywood have been a part of this talk show, and this is widely regarded as one of the best talk shows in Indian TV.
Karan Johar plays the host like no other, and has been an extraordinary entertainer over the years.
KJo is now all set to come out with the fifth season of his popular talk show, and it has now been revealed via a Tweet that the Season 5 series premier will star none other than the Shah Rukh Khan.
Over the years, the friendship between Shah Rukh and Karan Johar has been quite popular and the two are believed to be close friends. Having worked in several movies with Karan, Shah Rukh has been the most frequent guest on Koffee with Karan.
A fan had asked Karan on Twitter if SRK would be on the show, and Karan responded by saying:
“Yes opening episode has to be him and no one else.”
Last year, while many expected Shahrukh to be the opening act for the show, Karan Johar surprised the fans, as it was Salman Khan who came up to the show. While many anticipated SRK to be the surprise guest in the season finale, KJo didn’t do that either, and SRK will now be back on the sets with the fifth season premier.
Karan Johar also answered many other questions during a twitter Q&A session, including saying that the film Shuddhi would be coming out in September, and also said that he ‘cant wait to work with Kangana Ranaut’.
“I think everybody should hope that Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan do a film together. The show happens. I hope one day we will be an audience to great cinema with Salman and Shah Rukh in a film,” Johar told reporters when asked about bringing the “Dabangg” star and SRK together on “Koffee with Karan”.
Karan Johar stated that Koffee with Karan would come out towards the end of the year. Around September to November of 2016.
