Koffee With Karan 7: Karan Johar admits even Alia Bhatt has asked to stop mentioning her on the show: “You can never take my name ever again”
In the episode, Karan asked the guests, “First thing, they say I talk a lot about Alia Bhatt, do I?” While Kusha said, "There is chatter online", Tanmay joked, "Listen Karan, she's pregnant. You got a new person to launch, we get it."
A surprised Karan shouted back, "Oh no, that's not why." He said, "I have to be very aware because honestly Alia and I had a chat about this. She's like, 'Karan, I don't want to sound ungrateful but you have to stop talking about me'. I'm like okay it has come from the horse's mouth herself so I've to shut the f*** up about it."
Karan also said, "I even wore a jacket the other day that said 'Italia' and everyone just said I had Alia written on it. I have reached a point where I'm wearing a jacket by her name." Danish Sait compared Karan mentioning Alia’s name with the situation in Brahmastra where Alia calls Shiva’s name several times. He said, “I watched Brahmastra and it in Alia Bhatt keeps screaming 'Shiva... Shiva..' The equivalent of that on television is you saying Alia.” To which, Karan said, "Alia is really lovely. Nothing related to her and I bring her name up. I get it."
Kusha said, "A lot of times her name is also mentioned because you want to know who's the top actor or actress in the country. We know the name you want to hear. Who do you think it is and why do you think it's Alia Bhatt?" Karan, once again, laughed and responded by saying, "I really think it's Alia Bhatt but I shouldn't say anymore. If I say anymore then I'm making this entire discussion counterproductive. Okay, let's swear on Instagram, shall we? (Keeping his hand on his phone) I promise from here on Koffee With Karan I will keep Alia Bhatt's mentions to a bare minimum."
Later, Karan Johar called Alia Bhatt to inform her that she and Ranveer Singh had won the Koffee With Karan 7 Best Episode Award. He also told her how the four of them trolled him for namedropping Alia Bhatt in every other episode. Alia said, "Even I told you that." The actress added, "Basically you can never take my name ever again. You have to swear, never ever. Just say mean things about me from now on." Karan suggested they should have a fight on Twitter. Alia replied, "Let's have a fallout."
Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt will next star in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Ranveer Singh.
