As to what kicked off as a brand new season, Koffee with Karan‘s first episode was indeed an exciting one which saw Salman Khan, the most eligible bachelor of Bollywood in the hot seat. Karan Johar managed to get the ‘bad boy’ on the couch and ask those witty questions that made the star reveal some interesting secrets about himself.
When asked as to why Salman avoided the show for so long, the actor stated that he didn’t want to be cornered with those ‘personal’ questions being thrown at. However, when the time came to open up, Salman hit it off in the most unusual way.
The actor spoke about his plans to get married and his love life which was almost a roller coaster ride. “I’m a 48 year old virgin” said Salman, shocking the audience all over the world. He stated that he likes to sleep alone, had always maintained a ‘good friend’ tag with his girlfriends and had apparently ‘saved himself’ for the special one once he gets hitched. Actress Sangeeta Bijlani was the only one he got as close to getting married, which was called off at the last minute.
The discussion of Salman’s well known cold war with Shah Rukh Khan came up in the show where the actor explained his sudden reunion with Baadshah of Bollywood last Eid. Salman always felt that SRK was like a younger brother to him and he is amazed at the way the latter grew leaps and bounds in the industry. “He’s younger brother, I love that guy and even though we’ve had our differences, I am happy that he has done so well in the industry.” he said.
While asked about his current favorites among the heroines, Salman listed Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha as his picks. He was all praise for Akshay Kumar and felt that the latter emerged phenomenally in the industry to get to top league.
The new season of Koffee with Karan looks indeed very promising, with stars who have never come forth to be seen in the hot seat soon. The list is supposed to have even Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao over. The next episode will see star cousins Ranbir and Kareena Kapoor unwinding to be their real selves.
