Koffee With Karan is one of the most watched talk shows in the country, which has been running since 2004. With each season, the show hosted by Karan Johar manages to find itself in a new pickle. The latest comes after someone took to Twitter to accuse the show of plagiarism. 

A writer-journalist took to Twitter and Instagram to claim that the latest episode of Koffee With Karan, which features Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan, has used content she has written without her permission and denied her any credit. Her tweet was also accompanied by a video clip from the episode and screengrabs of the original story she had done for a media outlet. 

“So #KoffeeWithKaran lifted the IP I started at @iDivaOfficial and used the whole copy verbatim??? I came up with this concept and I had a lot of fun writing these but to not be credited just because it was frivolous is not acceptable!? If you lift the copy, give the credit,” she wrote on Twitter. 

Karan Johar can be seen playing a game with his two guests on the second episode of the new season, where Janhvi and Sara have to guess the name of a movie, after listening to a bad plot description of it. The talk show host can be seen asking the same question from the article in the latest episode. 

The user also tagged Karan Johar, Disney Plus Hotstar, Star World India and creative writer Shreemi Verma in the post. 

Koffee With Karan has returned for a seventh season, this time exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar. All the previous seasons and the first two episodes from the latest season is now available on the streaming platform.
