Ask him if he ever was at loss of words while talking to Salman, the host said, “Sometimes you get stumped with Salman.. Even I got stumped one or two times like what should I do now, sometimes because of seniority you tend to... with younger generation you can get away saying anything.” Salman’s presence on the opening episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’ had people talking. But Karan shrugged off the controversy. “Last season I started with Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Aishwarya. With very show there is always a different journey.With this particular season it is different journey. Why do people read into everything..it is just a show... who starts and ends it how does it matter,” he asked.
The surprising element this time was the appearance of the other two Khans—Salman and Aamir—on the chat show as SRK has been regularly part of the previous seasons. “Both had not been on the show for various reasons in the past. I am glad they both made it this time. Salman kicked off the season in a superb way and I am happy he came. I was very touched as he was warm and wonderful, which he always is,” Karan said. Karan has known Salman since long time and he was part of his debut directorial film ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ as well. “Also, I have known Aamir for a long time, I have known Kiran very closely. I have very good relations with them, I have a solid bond with them. I have strong equations with all the movie actors. In case of Akshay Kumar I am closer to his wife Tina.. she is my childhood friend. “I know Ajay because Kajol is an old friend of mine. So, I have my own connections with these movie stars and I always will,” he added.
