This weekend saw yet another crackling episode of Koffee with Karan – we can say that this was the best of episodic encounters so far this season. Emraan Hashmi steamed up the hot seat with ace film maker Mahesh Bhatt, with his sexy attitude and effervescent responses on the rapid fire. Mahesh Bhatt was not far away himself, being that ‘dysfunctional’ person and grounded with real replies.
Easily called as hailing from the ‘Bhatt’ camp, Emraan was everything that he was supposed to be – as the Nation awaited his take on being called the ‘serial kisser’ and how his family reacted to the erotic scenes in his movies, Emraan was grounded and stated that this was his profession, a very technical aspect in his life and nothing beyond.
The rapid fire round was a sensation, with Hashmi and Bhatt racing to the finish at close range. Emraan, however, won the goodies for his sharp answers, some very controversial. When asked about what was overrated about few actors, Emraan shot off with interesting responses. He said that Ranbir Kapoor being called a ladies man was overrated. Hashmi described Aishwarya Rai in one word as ‘Plastic’ and his worst kiss to be with his Murder co star, Mallika Sherawat. He went on further to describe Sherawat in one word as ‘An idiot’s guide to Hollywood’. When asked about what he liked about Abhishek Bachchan, he replied, ‘his wife’, making K Jo almost fall on the floor. Hashmi also admitted to missing one night stands after getting married.
The responses from Mahesh Bhatt were no less, with a direct angst thrown at the Award system in Indian Cinema. He hated the fact that films in Bollywood are being made with an intent to get an Oscar, and that there was nothing as fake as the staged award ceremonies. His overwhelming revelations on being a successful director and having a dysfunctional home and life touched few. He called director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to be the most overrated.
Overall, this weekend was definitely hot and edgy with Emraan Hashmi dazzling to be the ‘real’ himself on a National Television.
