CONFIRMED: Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone to be the first guests on Koffee With Karan 6


Karan Johar is back with the sixth season of his popular celebrity chat show, Koffee With Karan. Interestingly, KJo has always managed to rope in A-listers with some unique pairings on his show, which has been extremely successful ever since its inception in 2004. In fact, the announcement of the new season had certainly left everyone wondering as to who would be the first guests on the couch. But Karan has once again pulled off a casting coup of sorts by bringing together Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone to open the first episode of Koffee With Karan 6.

The ace filmmaker confirmed the same on his Twitter account and welcomed the two actresses on the show.

He also shared the news on his Instagram story by tagging Alia and Deepika.

Well, this will be the first time that Alia and Deepika will make their joint appearance to open the chat show, which had always featured Shah Rukh Khan as its first guest. Not to forget, Alia had featured in the first episode of Koffee with Karan 5 with SRK, her Dear Zindagi co-star.

Meanwhile, a source associated with the show divulged details about the first episode to a leading daily and said, "The episode will be shot next week and will see the actresses discuss girl power, the changing role of women in films today and their real-life friendship, among other things." Apart from that, we are almost certain that Karan will be quizzing Deepika on her impending wedding with Ranveer Singh and Alia about her alleged relationship with her Brahmastra co-star Ranbir Kapoor.

To say the least, we just cannot wait for this episode to air soon. Koffee With Karan 6 will premiere on October 21 – Sundays at 9 pm.
