Dear readers, we have more updates on the latest episode of Coffee with Karan. You must be living under a rock if you haven’t heard of the celebrities who have appeared this week. There were two debutantes – Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey. They were joined by the one and only Gauri Khan, making a comeback on the show after 17 years. The episode was all about fun, laughter and, of course, a few secrets. Karan Johar, who is very good at making his guests talk, did just that on Bhavana Pandey in the rapid-fire round. Topic: Ananya Panday’s relationships.
Before we walk you through the conversation, we’d like to add that it happened during Gauri Khan’s rapid fire. Karan Johar to Gauri Khan: “The only advice you give to Suhana [Khan] about dating.” The interior designer replies, “Never date two boys at the same time. Never.” Here comes the best part. Karan Johar then looks at Bhavana Pandey and says, “I think Ananya [Panday] has already done so.” A visibly surprised Bhavana Pandey asks, “Has she?” KJo’s response, “Ya. I think she wavered in between.” Bhavana Pandey clarifies, “No, she was thinking of two, so she broke up with one.”
Karan Johar also asked Bhavana Pandey about Ananya’s equation with Kartik Aaryan. The stars were reported to be in a relationship. The two were part of the film Pati Patni Aur Woh.
During Bhavana Pandey’s rapid fire, Karan Johar asks, ‘Who are you thinking of, Ananya? [Panday] looks best with?” The options – Siddhant Chaturvedi, Tiger Shroff, Ishaan Khatter and Kartik Aaryan. According to Bhavana Pandey, Ananya “looks best with Kartik [Aaryan]works best with Ishaan [Khatter]She dances best with Tiger [Shroff] and sings best with Siddhant Chaturvedi”. To which he said, “I don’t want your politically correct answers.” Finally, Bhavana Pandey agrees that Ananya looks best with Kartik.
KJo asks: “What happened then? Why did they break up?” Bhavana says, “I thought you were talking about the screen.” Then Karan Johar asks, “But if they looked so good together, they should have kept it together.” She then says, “You know never. Never say Never.”
Ananya Panday made headlines after it was reported that she and Ishaan Khatter have split. The two starred in the 2020 film Khaali Peeli. Earlier this season when Ananya appeared on the show with her ligers Co-star Vijay Deverakonda, Karan Johar confirmed that Ananya and Ishaan have been dating for a while. KJo had also asked Ananya, “You dated Vijay while you were dating Ishaan?” To which Ananya didn’t respond.
Ananya Panday announced after a while: “I’m single. Nobody asks, but I’m single.” After listening, Karan Johar added, “You broke up with Ishaan. You dated Ishaan, then you broke up. Come on, everyone knew you were with Ishaan.” Once again, Ananya didn’t say a word.
Karan Johar had asked Ishaan Khatter the same question while appearing on the show alongside his Phone Bhoot co-stars Katrina Kaif and Siddhant Chaturvedi. When asked “You broke up with Ananya Panday?” Ishaan said, “Have I? Because you said she recently broke up with me.” The actor added, “Yeah, I mean, I would hope to have her [Ananya] as a friend for the rest of my life. She is one of the most wonderful people I know. She’s a darling, she really is. Anyone who’s met her would say that. She really is a darling. And all vague questions aside, she’s someone I care deeply about and will always remain.”
