Mumbai: Come January 2nd, you will witness a never seen before side of Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan in Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’.
Buzz has it that the one hour special show of ‘Koffe with Karan’, where SRK appears solo will be highly emotional. Apparently, Karan Johar broke down when his best friend Shah Rukh spoke at length about his former friends Farah Khan and Salman Khan.
Talking to a daily, a source from ‘Koffee With Karan’ said, “SRK`s episode with KJo is emotional where Shah Rukh has been caught in a mellow, introspective mood. He`s emotionally vulnerable, revealing things that have hurt him in the last year.”
The source continued, “When Karan pointed out that people feel that old friends Farah and Salman have a problem with Shah Rukh, he said: `I don`t know how to make friends and if I do, I don`t know how to keep them.... If Salman and Farah are upset with me it`s 100 per cent my fault but I can’t pick up the phone and say sorry.... I can’t apologise not because of ego but because I can’t just get myself to ask people to come back to me... I had asked my parents to come back and they didn’t...”
“King Khan spoke highly of his former friends. SRK spoke very honestly about Sallu and Farah. He admitted that the biggest problem in his life is his cell phone as many of his friends accuse him of not taking or ignoring their calls and messages.”
Karan was literally moved to tears when Shah Rukh said that he can’t continually tell people that he loves them.
“He says, `I feel it’s understood that I love them if I have told them once... I can’t keep repeating it... I have a problem saying `I love you` twice and thrice and keep repeating the words... Even in my films I can`t keep saying `I love you!”
“It was a totally different cup of coffee this time. It’s awkward to discuss and recreate such intimate scenes normally again. I have never become emotional on Koffee With Karan because that`s never been the tone of the show (it’s usually spicy and controversial).”
When enquired about SRK’s appearance on the show, Karan Johar said, “Shah Rukh is warm and heart felt as he naturally is. He has spoken on all his relationships, family and friendships. There`s certain strength in what he had to say. He is beyond any kind of issues. You feel he has risen above every situation and comes through beautifully on the show. This coffee on the couch episode with SRK was emotionally unplugged more than humour unplugged. It`s a new impact!”
The special episode featuring SRK and Karan will be aired on 2nd January 2011.
