Mumbai: Karan Johar sure knows how to get his way around celebrities for the filmmaker-cum-host has convinced the very reclusive Ajay Devgn for his famous talk show. After refusing to appear on ‘Koffee with Karan’ for the last two seasons, Ajay has given his final nod to Karan Johar. However, the actor will appear on the show solo as his better half Kajol chose to stay at home with the kids.

As per reports, Karan was keen to get both Ajay and Kajol on the show together. However, Kajol excused herself playing the baby card. Nevertheless, she urged her hubby to appear on the show.

Confirming the news a source said, "The host was thrilled to have Ajay on the show. Prior to the shoot, Ajay and KJo were closeted together for two hours in the make-up van.”

Talking about Ajay agreeing to do the show, Karan said, “We have been chatting a lot. Initially, Ajay had reservations but I told him we will make it fun and comfortable and not gossipy. I wanted to catch a glimpse of Ajay and who he is and I think I managed that."

"I would`ve liked Kajol on the show but she`s busy with her newborn baby and it`s difficult for her to get away. I don`t think Ajay has ever done a one-on-one chat show like KWK. It`s very interesting for me to have Ajay on the show as he`s media shy and an introvert while the show is extrovert-ish and chatty," he added.
