Koffee with Karan is a series hosted by producer Karan Johar that invites numerous celebrities to discuss and reveal about work, love and more. Its seventh season is underway which streams on Disney plus hotstar, Star World, Star One.
Netizens seem to be agitated now as Karan has been praising Alia Bhatt in every episode of his show, terming it as “Karan’s creepy obsession with Alia”. In the recent episode featuring Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, Karan called Alia as “best actress in the country”.
“What about envy or competition or jealousy sometimes with your contemporaries, like you know, is there that sense of ‘I need to do it and look beyond my shoulder and do better than her’ and do better than everybody and perform as an actor… like there’s so much chatter about Alia Bhatt being the best actor in the country. Is there an acceptance at your level or is it also driving you to kind of get there yourself?,” asked Karan.
To which Sanon replied, “I feel of course it drives me. It aspires me to do better. When I see great work,” Karan chimed in, “Like Gangubai”. She added, “yeah, and see you also feel that you know, I would love to have an opportunity like that and I would love to have something because I feel like Mimi as an opportunity when it came to me, it gave me that confidence to put in so much into that film”.
People now wonder his manner of speaking about her has reached to an irritating level, making viewers bored. Many pointed out that Karan is brazenly trying to sell a narrative.o
