A little while ago we told you that the recently-betrothed Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas could not appear on Star World’s Koffee with Karan because they were most likely under contractual obligations to appear together on an American chat show first. That news, unfortunately, is true. Even though we cannot reveal on which platform the celeb couple will step out together first.
However, PeepingMoon.com has learned that the show’s energetic host, the irrepressible Karan Johar, is not about to let Priyanka go away just like that. It is believed he is considering casting her with a top drawer Bollywood personality who has always been one of his favourites in the industry and a close friend and whom he was saving for a special show. This actress and Priyanka would make Koffee with Karan for KJo.
And that person is – Kareena Kapoor Khan!
KJo knows, if this pairing happens successfully, the two actresses will give absolute paisa vasool entertainment to viewers and send the popular chat show’s TRPs skyrocketing. They have worked together in only one film, Akshay Kumar’s Aitraaz in 2004, but they have shared screen space in several others including 36 China Town, Don, Billu, Ra.One, Kismat Talkies and Bombay Talkies. The only other time Kareena and Priyanka came together is for the finale of the first season of Kaun Banega Crorepati when Shah Rukh Khan hosted it in 2007.
However, there is a bit of history that they share. And which was reportedly the cause for an alleged cat-fight between the two actresses that every Bollywood site gleefully reported but nobody honestly managed to see. A major cold war is said to have broken out between the two after Shahid Kapoor split with Kareena in 2006 and famously began dating Priyanka.
This war is believed to have gone public when Kareena made a remark against Priyanka saying, “I wonder where she got her accent from?” Not to be outdone, Priyanka gave it back on Koffee with Karan saying, “I got it from the same place her boyfriend got it from.”
Kareena was dating Saif Ali Khan then. The couple is now married, they have the cutest baby son in Taimur Ali Khan, and Priyanka herself is engaged to Nick. There is so much more for them to talk about now that they have respectively moved on professionally and personally.
If only Karan can get them together to have ‘Koffee’ with him…
