Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra join Karan Johar in the season finale of Koffee with Karan 4. While for Alia it is her second outing on the couch this season, Parineeti makes her debut on the talk show. The two actresses have made no qualms about their professional insecurities, albeit in a healthy way, with each other while being just as congenial in the same tone.

All that and more on the upcoming episode of Koffee with Karan Season 4 which airs on Star World on Sunday, 06 April 2014. Powered by Idea

Snippets from the episode

Karan: There is so much conjecture about Manish and you, and you have gone on record and said he is your 4am friend. So at 4am do you call him or tap him?

Parineeti – (Laughs) I to go and meet him also ..

Karan – At 4am!! So what is the truth about cats and dogs there?

Parineeti – (Laughs again) No cats and dogs there. I infact find it, for the lack of a better word cheap actually when people..

Karan- Insinuate?

Parineeti – Not even insinuate! People straight away say that you got the film because you are seeing Manish or you are in a relationship with Manish. For me Manish is like Adi, I respect both of them too much, they have given me my whole life. Even if I can buy a car today it’s because of them, so when you..

Karan – dilute that?

Parineeti – Not even dilute, dilute is such a small word, it’s just cheap, for me it’s just wrong. My respect for him is something else.

Karan – But you can love someone you respect!

Parineeti – Ya ya!! But my feeling for Manish is totally different I cannot explain it.

Karan – So much is been said about Parineeti and you, is there an unnecessary vibe to create that stir because nothing else is happening.  There are no other two girls kind of..

Alia – I think that’s what it is! Wherever I go I am asked can two actresses be friends or do you think there is a rivalry, just because I said whatever about styling and everything people have just completely forgotten the fact that I have praised her ample amount before that. So, I messaged her way before the show was out that listen this has happened so please don’t…

Karan – You kept on saying that whenever you went for highway promotions you were being asked about Parineeti.

Alia – Yaa. They kept asking, because when the promos were out they were like rivalry ho gaya hai, you both don’t like each other, what is the problem, this and that!! So we have cleared that out but everywhere I have gone I have been asked all these questions.

Parineeti – Yaa. Same here even in my promotions! Any interview I do it’s all about –is this the new cat fight and do you not get along, how do you take it? What did you say to her? I said listen Alia called me when Student didn’t even release so technically she was not even an actress that time.

Karan – Yaa she called to you how do you cry so well?

Parineeti – Cry so well and how do you speak Hindi so well! And I still remember

Alia – That’s not what I said! I said that atleast teach me how to cry and..

Parineeti – command over Hindi you said

Alia – that command over Hindi I said on the show.

Parineeti – You said that day also, so nicely you spoke!!

Karan – Chalo you all are fighting now.

Karan – So Alia you definitely have a sense of possessives for Varun and Sidharth (Malhotra), that I know for a fact! You feel a bit territorial. So when these boys work with Parineeti how does it make you feel?

Alia – No they are constantly pulling my leg. O Pari is so sexy..O Pari is like this..Pari is like that!! But I know that they, Sorry (to Parineeti) love me more than they love her. And I know that for sure but it’s the same way like Arjun can love Pari more than he loves me! So that’s fine.

Karan – But rumours say that you have made that turn also!!

Parineeti – Even I would like to know this!

Karan – You have managed to get Arjun also do this flip

Parineeti – but I disagree to this.

Alia – You disagree?

Parineeti- No!!! I am not saying anything..

14apr_KWK4-AliaParineeti02

Karan –what is your vibe like with Ranbir?

Alia – I remember the first time I spoke to Ranbir you called him up when Rockstar released and you said here talk to Ranbir tell him how much you love him! And I just spoke so much rubbish, I was just talking non-stop. But later I have hung out with Ranbir and I still think he is really adorable and I still want to marry him.

Karan – (Laughs) You want to marry Ranbir Kapoor?

Alia – Yea!!

Karan – Have you told this to his mother? Is Neetu ji aware of your future plans and more importantly does Katrina know?

Alia – Everybody knows my plan! I have gone on record and said it as you said and I am very open about it except to Ranbir. I don’t tell Ranbir.

14mar_KWK4-No1ShowThe successful talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’ entered its 4th season on Star World premiering in December, creating waves with the first episode featuring the ever-elusive Salman Khan. The popularity of that episode has not waned as the show continues to maintain the top position in its category for 11 straight weeks since its launch. In its premiere week itself it delivered 222 TVT and it currently owns 58% viewership on the primetime slot of Sunday at 9pm.

With the first season hitting the small screen in 2004, Koffee with Karan has come to be known as the go-to destination for an insight into the lives of celebrities. With his witty repertoire and unbeatable charm Karan has managed to get the juiciest bits of gossip from the celebrities he invites onto his show. His dynamics with the biggies of Bollywood make it effortless for the director/producer to tease and joke with them about rumours, relationships and everything in between.

Viewers get a weekly dose of celeb gossip straight from the stars themselves in a setting no one but Karan Johar can pull off. The 4th season of the show has pushed the envelope in a big way with a lot of first timers taking to the couch. While Salman stole the show with the first episode creating history in the talk show space in India, other debut guests on the Koffee couch were Aamir and wife Kiran, Akshay Kumar, cousins Ranbir and Kareena who have never been on a talk-show together before.

The show has also witnessed immense popularity on social networking site as the Twitter auction where fans stand a chance to win the autographed mug signed by the guests on the show has seen much success.

Speaking on the success of the season, Kevin Vaz, General Manager – English Channels, Star India said, “Koffee with Karan is a great show, the format is excellent and the content is engaging.  It has revolutionized the Indian talk-show space and is clearly delivering exactly what the audience wants to see. We’ve seen a huge amount of growth in terms of popularity over the years and this season has been the most successful until now.”

Over the course of the 4th season, the show has seen a host of illustrious names grace the infamous ‘Koffee couch’ like Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan, Abhishek Bachchan and Farah Khan. Of the episodes, the one featuring Akshay Kumar had the highest number of eyeballs, gaining 156 GVTs. With this already impressive line-up, the fun doesn’t stop soon as the show is expected to see quite a few more names grace the sets including Anil and Sonam Kapoor, Kajol among others.

Koffee With Karan 4 preview – Kajol and Ayan Mukherjee http://bollyspice.com/koffee-karan-4-preview-kajol-ayan-mukherjee/ Sun, 16 Mar 2014 02:16:17 +0000 http://bollyspice.com/?p=77065 It’s all about loving the family on the Koffee couch with Karan this week with cousins’ actor Kajol and filmmaker Ayan Mukherjee. While Kajol does not seem to miss a bean in mentioning Ajay Devgn in response to almost every question Karan posed to her, Ayan was more than candid about his ‘love story’ with friend Ranbir Kapoor (who is practically more like family to him). It is expected that the usually straightforward Kajol will have quite the few quips to make for an interesting episode, what remains to see if the duo can up the TRP of the other

kwkkajolayan1It’s all about loving the family on the Koffee couch with Karan this week with cousins’ actor Kajol and filmmaker Ayan Mukherjee. While Kajol does not seem to miss a bean in mentioning Ajay Devgn in response to almost every question Karan posed to her, Ayan was more than candid about his ‘love story’ with friend Ranbir Kapoor (who is practically more like family to him). It is expected that the usually straightforward Kajol will have quite the few quips to make for an interesting episode, what remains to see if the duo can up the TRP of the other Kapoor cousins episode from earlier this season.

All that and more on the upcoming episode of Koffee with Karan Season 4 which airs on Star World on Sunday, 16 March 2014. Powered by Idea

Snippets from the episode

Karan: Suddenly you are in the fashion pages Kajol, I thought two things wouldn’t happen that I would make an action film which I haven’t and you would..
Kajol: And you would act?
Karan: Me acting, that I could expect from myself but you being in the fashion pages is something none of us expected!
Kajol: That’s true. Neither did I. Even I dint expect it!
Karan: You are on high heel confidential and designers want to send you their garments now. Why has this happened? I really want to know. Apart from the pressure that Manish and I have put on you there has to be some real tangible reason for this happening.
Kajol: Well tangible reason is just the fact that, I did think of it from the point of view that there is so much focus on it today as well that was yes one consideration but the 2nd consideration, 80% of the fact that yes it is the part of my personality that I need to develop. That I needed to pay attention too. I needed to figure out what it was because from the age of 16 somebody has always told me what to wear ad how to wear it. So I have never really had either an opinion or never really cared to have an opinion and I wanted to know what my opinion was on it.
 
Karan: So now there is so much talk about Kajol wanting you back in the movies and everybody like you have a whole fan base which keeps..This word comeback is so overused and abused and with you..like are you being extra choosy, are you being extra particular or you just want that big movie star, big mainstream vehicle to really do a film?
Kajol:You know I don’t think it has anything to do with mainstream, it doesn’t have anything to do with big but it has to do with good! And it has to do with me being..picky, choosy. I don’t want to work with someone who is not going to bring out the best in me, I don’t want to work with somebody who is going to depend on me to do the 90% of the work.
Karan: Is comfort zone that important?
Kajol: Yes, it is. It is that important. I feel communication is important more than comfort. If the director can’t talk to me, and tell me what he wants or explain to me that this is where it’s going wrong and this is the kind of thing we are looking at. There is no way in hell that we will have a good working rapport. 150 days on a film with the people you don’t like is hell.
 
Karan: What do you mean you love actors?
Ayan: I love actors! I think that unabashedly want to befriend actors. I like actors. I feel like even on a set like they are my favorite people, like actors are very like …
Karan & Kajol: Are you star struck?
Ayan: I am star struck yes but also I genuinely think that you know everyone else on the set is little bit of a majdoor on a set but actors are like royalty on a set.

Rapid Fire
 
With Kajol
Karan: A Co- star of yours that Ajay has been jealous of? Or irritated?
Kajol: (Laughs) Nobody!
Karan: This Hamper isn’t coming to you!! This hamper isn’t coming to you baby. So sorry. You started with great gusto..It’s gone no where
Kajol: No but there isn’t. There isn’t, he is not that kind of a guy and you know I am not that kind of a person.
Karan: Alright! The stupidest question you have ever been asked at a publicity event?
Kajol:: Do you speak English!
Karan: Somebody has really asked you this really?
Kajol: Yea, somebody said do you speak English we want you to talk in English on the stage. Do you speak English? I was like..haaa
Karan: They asked rich elite Kajol if she could speak English!!
Kajol: Exactly!! That’s exactly what went through my head at that point of time as well.
Karan: Ok! An idea which changed your life?
Kajol: A line actually that changed my life was when my Dad told me on the mahurat of Bekhudi actually he came up to me and said, “Once you put this paint on its never going to come off.” And I didn’t believe him at that point of time but a few years down the life that idea got stuck in my head, that it is not just something, it works!

Karan: If you were to ask the following people one thing what would you ask?
Shah Rukh Khan
Kajol: Why are you so candid all the time? Don’t you know that people like to hear nice pretty lies once in a while.

Karan: Rani Mukherji
Kajol: When are you getting married even I would like to know!
Karan: Aditya Chopra
Kajol: Same question (Laughs)
Karan: A person from the film industry you would like to take on a romantic date?
Kajol: My husband! I don’t get enough time with him. I would really like to take him out for a romantic date.
Karan: Why do men find Kajol sexy?
Kajol: I want to say because they have not seen Katrina or Kareena but I would say that they find a sense of humor sexy.

Karan: To which people in the industry would you recommend the following?
Plastic Surgeon
Kajol: Too many people really, actually I wouldn’t recommend a plastic surgeon to anybody because I think most of them have their own.
Karan: An acting couch
Kajol: That I think most of the people need. Most everybody needs.
Karan: There are no names coming out!

Karan: As a jury member of an imaginary award ceremony. Whom will you give these awards to?
Most irritating song
Kajol: The most irritating song is that one song, that Tui – Tui song. That Tu-Tu song, it is the most irritating song, I am sorry.
Karan: And the most ridiculous lyrics
Kajol: Again ( Tu-Tu)
Karan: Worst Remake
Kajol: Sholay
Karan: Who is the sexiest actor in the movies? Objectively today?
Kajol: My husband!
Karan: I have a Kajol song – bhala hai bura hai jaisa bhi hai mera pati mera devata hai..
Kajol: I am sorry it’s got nothing, I really find him the sexiest actor, I really like those dark brooding looks, it’s got to do with my personal taste.
Karan: Alright! Deepika, Katrina, Kareena according to you the most stunning actress?
Kajol: I think Kareena is the most beautiful of them all.

Karan: Now talent wise, acting ability wise rank these 5 in order of preference.
Deepika, Katrina, Kareena, Priyanka, Anushka
Kajol: Ok! Kareena I would say is out of that. Kareena would be the top of the list.
I think Deepika and Priyanka are kind of in par with each other so the number 2 spot is head by both of them and then following the rest of them in the order.
Karan: And the men Shah Rukh, Salman , Aamir, Ajay, Ranbir , Hrithik. Actually I should have removed Ajay, remove Ajay. No brainer where he will be positioned.
Kajol: To start with, to be very honest with you, to start with I would really say Ranbir. I really think he is seriously fantastic. Secondly there is, I think Shah Rukh and Aamir are on par with each other. There is no up or down in that. Then we come to Salman and so on. Ofcourse but if Ajay was included in that list..
Ayan: Then he would be number 1, number 1 to 5.

With Ayan
 
Karan: A movie you wish you could have directed?
Ayan: Rang De Basanti
Karan: A rumor you heard recently?
Ayan: That Katrina was in Dhoom 3
Karan: An actress you think is sexy?
Ayan: Katrina Kaif
Karan: An idea that changed your life?
Ayan: To accept myself the way that I am.
Karan: If you were stuck on a deserted island which are the two people from the film industry who you definitely would not want to be with?
Ayan: Deepika and Katrina together
Karan: What is that you have that no other Director of your generation has?
Ayan: Ranbir Kapoor

Karan: If you were to make biopics on these people what would you name them?
Ranbir Kapoor?
Ayan: The Artist
Karan: Deepika Padukone?
Ayan: The girl with the broken heart
Karan: Katrina?
Ayan: The Girl who Tried

Karan: Your worst nightmare, which one of these would be?
·         Your film without Ranbir Kapoor
·         Losing all your hair
·         A sex tape of you being leaked
Ayan: Oh God! Hands down, losing all my hair. Hands down!!

Karan: What do the following Directors have that you don’t?
Zoya Akhtar?
Ayan: She is more sure of herself and she is a better writer
Karan: Imtiaz Ali?
Ayan: Braver filmmaker, more surrender, more idealistic
Karan: Raju Hirani?

Karan: Have you ever-
Hooked up in a public place?
Ayan: Yes
Cheated in a relationship?
Ayan: Yes
Drunk dialled an EX?
Ayan: No I don’t do Exes

Kajol: Why don’t you ask me all these questions? I would have answered you!!

The star cast of Gunday recently paid a visit to a college at Delhi. However, very few people know that the director of the film, Ali Abbas Zafar belongs to the same college. Ali therefore took the trio Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor to his college, Kirori Mal College at Delhi University. This college which has an enormous campus which comprises 12 other college in the area went through an entire chaotic situation when the starcast of Gunday paid a visit.

The entire campus was flooded with college going teenagers. Priyanka, Ranveer and Arjun took a round of the complete campus and waved at the never ending crowd. It was an absolute star-struck episode where the students were just overwhelmed with 3 celebrities visiting their college at once. This led to a huge crowd gathering in order to get a glimpse of the trio.

Ali was quite excited to take the actors to his college in Delhi. Infact, the film was also set to visit Calcutta for their promotional activites, however Ali’s plan of visiting his college cropped up.

gulabigangdocumentaryGulabi Gang, a feature-length documentary, will be released in theatres across India on February 21, 2014. The film is being presented by actor/producer Sohum Shah, who cinemagoers will remember from last year’s breakthrough feature, Ship of Theseus. It follows Sampat Paland the feisty women of her Gulabi Gang as they combat gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption in the badlands of Bundelkand in central India.

Gulabi Gang marks Shah’s foray into distribution. “The film has a great story, and is highly entertaining,” he reasoned. Speaking about the film’s relevance in Indian society he added, “I’ve always believed that cinema is a great medium for education. A film like this can help spread awareness on the current state of gender inequality in India.” Shah chose to release the film as he is, “Working towards changing the way Indian audiences look at documentaries. Just as so many people came forward to support us when we released Ship of Theseus, I feel like it’s my turn to lend my support to a film that I feel needs to be seen.”

Directed by Nishita Jain (who also co-produced the film through her Raintree Films banner), the film is supported by Norway-based Piraya Films and Final Cut For Real from Denmark, among other international participants. It has won five international awards, including Best Film at the Dubai International Film Festival and Best Documentary, awarded by the International Association of Women In Radio and Television (AIWRT). It also enjoys the distinction of being the first Indian documentary to have a theatrical release abroad, having released in Norway last year.

The release of Gulabi Gang sees Recyclewala Labs, the media production house helmed by Sohum Shah and Ship of Theseus Writer/Director Anand Gandhi, hold true to their pledge to, “Facilitate an evolving platform for local and international filmmakers to create contemporary, engaging and awe-inspiring experiences, using motion picture to initiate dialogue and examine belief systems.“ With several projects in the pipeline, expect some exciting revelations from the studio in the near future.

In Bundelkhand, India, a revolution is in the making among the poorest of the poor, as Sampat Pal and the fiery women of her Gulabi Gang empower themselves and take up the fight against gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption.

B for Babaji Ka Thullu – What by and large audiences believed they got after walking out at the end of most releases this year

C for Curious case of Comedies – Matru.., YPD2, Besharam, Sooper se Ooper.. Humor was lost on the audience, as was the smile of the producers after the release of these films.

D for Dhating “Naach” and all those bizarre choreography dance movies, Babli’s chest-gun shots, Ranveer’s dandruff-riddance move, ‘Tamanche pe Disco’ and then there was ‘Tooh’.

E for Ek, Do, Teen… the crore counting club that’s adding zero’s on the go.

F for Femme Fatale Konkana Sen Sharma, Nimrat Kaur, Shilpa Shukla, Supriya Pathak, Padmini Kolhapure.

I for Ishq Friendship wala love, Shakespeare wala love, Fanaa wala love, lunchbox mein letter wala love, culture barrier breaking wala love, wrist slash stalker wala love. Aashiqui as we know it; was celebrated.

J for Joint accounts. Collaborations were the buzzword. Phantom films, Balaji, UTV, and Dharma co-productions in the offing. Bombay Talkies had four directors coming together to honor cinema. Indie films found mainstream Bollywood backing with likes of Kiran Rao, Karan Johar lending their support.

K for Kandid Konversations on the Koffee Kouch. While the media speculated and gossiped, Karan got celebs stirring quite the steamy confessions on the show.

L for Leela jaisi koi nahi. Deepika Padukone. She risked. She rose unscathed. She conquered.

M for Musical chairs. Actors produced, directors acted, producers became directors, they all wanted bites of the others’ pie.

14jan_AZBollywood2013-02

N for Newbies on the block. And a promising lot at that! Sushant Singh, Tapsee Pannu, Vaani Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor and a very special debutante – Asha Bhosle who stole our hearts in Mai.

O for Obituaries. Jiah Khan, Pran Saab, Rituparno Ghosh, Shamshad Begum, Manna Dey, Jagdish Mali, SriHari, Farooq Shaikh among others. The year was cruel. Our prayers with the families and loved ones.

P for Promotional Atyachaar. Switch channel : celebs on reality show; Switch : celebs on talk show; Switch : celebs on news channel. Switch off.

Q for ‘Quote se Court Tak’ – Everything Bollywood said or did hit headlines.

R for Rise of the Zombies. Go Goa Gone gave Bollywood its first ZomCom, entertained and taught a lesson or few.

S for Shuddh desi sets. While some filmmakers shot at real locations – Jaipur, Delhi, Kolkatta, some others took creative liberties and used the nearest hill station to symbolize another locale. For better part to fit, using live shots than sets, couple filmmakers showed how it’s done.

T for Tweet tales. Salman vented about bad customer care for his luxury car, Hrithik went online with his proclamation of love, celebs wrote in support of social issues, Bollywood ranted, raved, patted each other’s backs, dominated the platform personifying the term ‘lil birdie told us’ to the T..

U for Underworld drama. David, OUATIMD, D-day, Shootout at Wadala, the fascination with gangsters and their lives continued.

V for Vocabulary. Maanwar, kaddu katega, tattad tattad, bum pe laat, ‘cuddly pudding pie’… lyrics plus dialogues got weirder and lots of gandi baat happened chingam chabake.

W for We have learnt GHANTA. Past 12 months in 2013, hardly anything seems to have evolved in Bollywood. Remakes, sequels, formulaic films won some, lost some, not much significant to write about. Same old, same ‘ol!

X for X-files. Separations, divorces made for ugly headlines while some exes’ let bygones be just that and delivered blockbusters.

Y for ‘Your’s truly’ signed open letters. Katrina wrote one to the media for intruding on her privacy. Media wrote another to Ranbir for misbehaving. (for related or unrelated reasons).

Z for Zinda. The BMB track! The Lootera track! plus also to revel our survival of another year at the cinemas. Yay!
