Karan Johar reveals why Ranbir Kapoor refused to come on Koffee With Karan 7

Koffee With Karan is a show that never fails to capture headlines, be it following a celebrity revealing something shocking or cricketers running themselves into controversy. Karan Johar, who hosts the fan-favourite show, has now revealed that Ranbir Kapoor refused to return to the show. The actor was a part of season 4 of the show with Ranveer Singh.

Talking to Film Companion, Karan Johar opened up about the trouble he has in roping in big name stars to the talk show and that even some of his close friends refuse to be on the show. Talking about Kapoor, Johar said, “He is 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’ll meet you at your house and talk to you. You give me coffee at home. But please I am not coming for the show.’”

Johar also explained that people who appear on the show are disappointed with him about questions he asks and does not ask. These celebs also ask him to cut out some parts, which led to him wondering where the idea of a casual interview has gone. 

Johar further added that Kapoor told him that one could build public perceptions following their performance on the show, which has already had six seasons. For the uninitiated, both Ranbir and his wife Alia Bhatt have been immensely trolled thanks to a few statements and moments on Koffee With Karan over the years.

A seventh season for the show was announced a few weeks ago by the makers. Karan Johar took to social media to state that the show would not return to TV, creating questions in fans’ minds. He then revealed that the talk show will now stream directly on Disney+ Hotstar. 

The long running chat show, which has seen some of the biggest names in the film industry as guests, aired its first season back in 2004. The last season of this show - season 6 - aired in 2019.
