New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Karan Johar is one such filmmaker who everyone dies to work with. And apart from being one of the most celebrated prominent faces of Hindi cinema, the director is known for hosting his hit chat show Koffee With Karan. Yes, KJo has so far hosted as many as 6 successful seasons of the show which were well received by the audience for its quirk and fun segments. Rapid Fire Round in the show where the hosts ask funny questions is quite famous among fans where celebs have to give answers which need to be rapid and full of fire. And down the line what made this round even more interesting is the celebrities' replies where many times they ended up roasting Karan.
So, as the ace filmmaker is ringing in his 49th birthday today, here we are with 5 such moments when tables were turned and Karan Johar was roasted by celebrities.
1. Twinkle Khanna
KJo’s childhood friend who attended the same school as him, Twinkle Khanna held no bars when she was asked what was the meanest thing anyone ever said about her writing. Twinkle quickly responded, “When you started writing columns they said KJo is the new Mrs Funnybones. I didn’t want my standards to go so down.”
2. Aamir Khan
It was Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan who kicked off a storm of internet memes. When asked one thing he dislikes about the industry but has to pretend that he likes it. The PK superstar replied, “Your show!”
Kajol, who played the female lead in the biggest blockbusters of Karan’s career, too aced the role on the couch of being Karan’s interviewee in Koffee with Karan. When asked to name the celebrities who need to take a crash course in acting, Kajol surprised a lot and stunned many when she took Karan’s name.
4. Kangana Ranaut
The episode which became among the biggest talking points of the last decade in Mumbai’s entertainment world had Kangana on the couch opposite which Karan was asking questions. Karan being called the ‘flag bearer of nepotism' by the ‘Queen’ actress became the defining moment when even the audience started taking the acting quotient of star kids with a grain of salt.
