Koffee with Karan has always managed to stir more controversies than Koffee. With each passing season, we get to witness some really shocking revelations, wicked comments, and personal attacks by celebrities, that become a talking fodder for the entire world till the next season arrives.
The latest episode from season 6 featured the Kapoor sibling’s trio (Sonam Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor, and Rhea Kapoor), and when Johar asked Sonam about an actor she felt she looked best on-screen with, Sonam asked her siblings for help, to which her brother Harshvardhan took Fawad’s name. Sonam instantly said “yes,” and quickly added, “but unfortunately Karan sent him back”
It was 2016 when Karan Johar found himself in hot waters for having Fawad Khan in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.’
The Fawad factor became a nationwide controversy which eventually seriously threatened the release of the film. Johar, in the end, had to release a video apology, promising not to repeat this act (of casting Pakistani actors in his films) in future.
At Sonam’s answer, Karan showed a bit of nakhra and adaa by asking sarcastically, “anyone else you look good with,” to which Sonam finally settled for Salman Khan’s name.
Fawad Khan made his Bollywood debut in Shashanka Ghosh’s romcom ‘Khoobsurat,’ along with Sonam Kapoor in 2014. Khan went on to become the first Pakistani to win the prestigious Filmfare award in the Best Male Debut category. Later on, however, due to cross-border tensions, Pakistani actors got banned in India.
Fawad and Koffee With Karan
This is not the first time Karan was teased with the Fawad factor. Back in Season 5, Twinkle Khanna gave Karan a befitting reply when she was asked about ‘the coolest Khan of Bollywood’ with Karan listing the names of all the famous Khans, to which Khanna replied, “Why don’t you have one more Khan – Fawad Khan and you answer this question.”
Similarly, in the premiering episode of season six, Karan had gathered Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt at his show. And when he enquired Deepika about the Bollywood star with the dreamiest eyes, Deepika replied, “Fawad Khan.”
Khoobsoorat 2 On the Cards?
Well, it’s been four years since Khoobsurat released and it seems producer Rhea Kapoor’s WhatsApp status is hinting at a Fawad-Khoobsurat reunion. Let’s wait and watch.
With all these developments, it is apparent that India’s Fawad fever is not over yet. And why not? Not only our superstar is extremely hot but has made his space with some great work.
In fact, be it Mahira Khan, Atif Aslam, or Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Pakistani stars have always won hearts of the Indian audiences. Besides Fawad and Sonam, who wouldn’t want to watch Mahira and Shahrukh back together on silver screen.
For now, our very own Sara Loren, aka Monalisa, is gearing up for her next Bollywood comedy flick ‘Fraud Saiyaan’ with Arshad Warsi. The trailer is fun to watch and the film is scheduled to release on 18th January 2019.
If you are wondering how did Sara manage to do a film in India while other Pakistani actors are banned? Well, the answer is that she actually shot the film before the ban. We hope it does wonders at the box office, and that Bollywood reopens its doors for Pakistani artists.
