The latest episode of Koffee With Karan 7 will see the couch be graced by the OG Heropanti duo, Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon. The promo for the ninth episode teased a number of revelations, both awkward and intriguing, coming to light this episode as well, keeping in line with the show’s tradition. During the episode, Kriti also revealed that one of the first ever films she auditioned for was none other than Karan’s 2012 directorial, Student of the Year(SOTY).
Kriti had made her Bollywood debut opposite Tiger in the 2014 film Heropanti. When Karan questioned whether she’d been rejected many times before landing Heropanti, the actress revealed that one of the first films she ever auditioned for had been SOTY. This was followed by an awkward silence, before Karan remarked ‘Oops’ and followed it with an awkward chuckle.
Kriti went on to say that this had been during her initial modelling days and added “It was my career’s very first film audition and I was asked to dance to Bahara and some scenes from Wake Up Sid. I was horrible back then”.
She added that she had not been well prepared for the film at the time, and had no hard feelings to have lost out the role to Alia Bhatt. SOTY saw Alia share the screen with fellow debutants Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. Kriti made her Bollywood debut two years later, in Sabbir Khan’s Heropanti. SOTY can be streamed on Netflix while Heropanti is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
The ninth and latest episode of Koffee With Karan 7, which features Tiger and Kriti, will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on Thursday, September 1. Viewers in the US can stream the show on Hulu.
