Koffee with Karan Season 4, the most awaited TV show of the year is all set for getting aired from the December 1st and Karan Johar the most sensational host that we’ve ever had talks about how much the show always meant to him and what Koffee with Season 4 is going to be all about.
“It’s a very strong extension of my brand and I did not know it will contribute to my brand as strongly as it has. It started off as a talk show with me talking to stars, but I did not know that the level of comfort that I had with them would convert to an interesting viewing on TV and become a brand by itself. Had I known that, I would have charged the channel more than what I did ” Karan says, talking about how the show is very special to him.
The show got everyone so into it that whenever someone goes out with him for a coffee for real, they would joke about it. Talking about that, here’s what Karan Johar says “There is not a single encounter in a coffee shop where I have not been asked ‘Can we have coffee with Karan?’ Everyone thinks it is an original joke. Every morning I am asked that when I go and get my coffee from the neighbourhood shop. If I play a word game where I say coffee, you will land up saying Karan.”
So why did he choose Salman Khan for his very first episode? “Shah Rukh opened Season 1 and 2, Abhishek and Aishwarya opened Season 3. Salman has never been on the show ever and so was the grand choice. I don’t know why this comparison on who will open Koffee With Karan” the director said.
And talking about what we have got in store for the episode with Salman, he says “He was fantastic. He understood the need for him to be irreverent on the show. And yet, he was introspective at times. He struck that balance beautifully. He has come out like he never has before. A part of him on TV so far was about projecting, but on my show he said things that really came from his heart.”
Karan also spoke about how he thought Salman would have slapped any an ordinary journalist if he asked him the same questions that he did.
