Much to the excitement of Bollywood fans, Karan Johar Coffee with Karan will return with a new season. There has been a lot of speculation about who will grace the couch and talk about their personal lives, and for a while it was believed that actors Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would appear on the show together. Aishwarya has appeared a couple of times in Koffee with Karan, once in 2004 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and then in 2010 after her marriage to Abhishek Bachchan. Sushmita and Aishwarya also appeared in the Miss India pageant at the same time and won the Miss Universe and Miss World titles respectively.
However, Karan Johar told Bollywood Hungama that the rumors of Sushmita and Aishwarya appearing on the show together were “rubbish”.
Initially, it was speculated that Ranbir Kapoor and Alia would be guests on the show, but it turned out that Ranbir refused to appear on KWK. Karan had shared what Ranbir told him: “I will not go on your show. It’s like I have to pay the price for this for too long. Why should I do this to myself? He said, ‘I love you and I will see you at your house and talk to you.’ You give me coffee at home. But please, I won’t come for the show.”
He also added that the Brahmastra star had told him that ‘Karan, you can build public perception based on acting on that couch.’
Karan Johar had previously shared the sneak peek for season 7 of the show, which featured moments from previous seasons. He had written: “Guess who’s back? And this time with some hot beer! #HotstarSpecials #KoffeeWithKaran S7 starts July 7 only on Disney+ Hotstar! @disneyplushotstar @apoorva1972 @aneeshabaig @jahnviobhan @dharmaticent.”
Koffee with Karan first aired in 2004 on Star World. The show’s sixth season ended in 2019. Season 7 will stream on Disney Plus Hotstar.
