As expected, Koffee With Karan’s 5th season started with a bang! A Shah Rukh Khan, an Alia Bhatt, and a lot of gossip. The show got all stuff – secrets, witticism, and full doze of old buzz. The conversation kicked-off with issue of Shah Rukh Khan not appearing on the show in its last season. Here’s what SRK said: “I had to justify nationalism and you had to show me some love. Why don’t we just release the picture of us kissing and even the one where we are married.” Both SRK and Karan agreed that fights do happen, irrespective of the relationship. Karan asked Shah Rukh Khan about Alia’s relationships. He asked the Don actor if she’s dating anyone. SRK said that she must be dating every young actor around. However, his Dear Zindagi co-star clarified that she’s not dating anyone. She also admitted that she dated for first time when she was 16. When the Dear Zindagi co-star was asked how many guys he thinks she has dated so far, SRK said, “I will be disappointed if there are two or four.” Meanwhile, Karan put-up a question about SRK’s daughter Suhana’s relationships, who also turned 16 this year. Karan asked SRK if he would be fine if the teenage daughter kisses someone. To This, SRK said that he would rip-off the boy’s lips.
On being asked if she was ever attracted to SRK, Alia said, “Of course! Even if I was dating it is okay to be attracted especially to SRK. I always loved him. It felt surreal to share the screen with him. While shooting the kabaddi-with-the-sea scene, Gauri told me to forget that he is SRK.” Alia’s blunders during her last appearance, when she named Prithviraj Chauhan as the President of India – also came into play. When Karan asked SRK what he would do if he woke up as Alia, the actor’s response was: I would read a newspaper. Alia also rejected the link-up rumours with Siddhartha Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor.
