Yet another week, yet another Koffee with Karan. And this week, Karan Johar brings to his infamous couch, to-be-weds Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi. While Lara has been on the show twice before, this was Maheshs’ first time. A clearly happy and glowing Lara Dutta spoke immediately about her ex-boyfriends, Kelly Dorji and Dino Morea. She added that the air had been cleared between both men and she hoped later in the future, they all could be friends again. However, for now, the man in her court, pun intended, was Indian tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi.
Mahesh too was faced with quick questions from Karan as he asked about his previous marriage, his equation with Leander Paes and his take on Bollywood. Mahesh, who seemed rather relaxed, answered honestly that this friendship with Leander was being mended. However, when all talk turned to Lara, he indicated that she is now an integral part of his life. The couple shared their engagement story as well as small bits from their own relationship. Lara told the world about Maheshs’ love for David Dhawan films while he claims she is the female equivalent of Bollywood’s serial kisser, Emraan Hashmi.
The Rapid Fire round saw two-time winner Lara Dutta jut out prompt and witty answers as expected by the ex-Miss Universe. However, it was Mahesh Bhupathi’s quirky and relaxed answers that had Karan baffled. Needless to say, the latter won and Lara grinned cheek-to-cheek that she had no issues losing to her beau.
Lara and Mahesh will wed mid February 2011. Next week, the couch will sizzle as Hrithik Roshan and wife Sussanne sip a cup of joe with Karan.
