Make no mistake, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, who were promoting ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ on ‘Koffee With Karan’, were in a perfect put-together mood. In fact, Aamir, whom Karan and Kareena considered ‘boring’, was more candid and witty, and did not miss a single opportunity to take a dig at the host himself. While Aamir is sure that Kareena has upped her coffee game, well, not that much.
In fact, Kareena, who has always been outspoken and never takes the diplomatic route over her past appearances on the coffee couch, seemed to be missing in action. Even Karan hinted that she is being ‘too full of herself’ or ‘too diplomatic’. And we couldn’t agree more with Karan when he said that Kareena’s rapid fire round could easily go down as the worst in the history of Koffee With Karan. When asked what she tolerates about Aamir that she will not tolerate in others, she replied that Aamir takes 100-200 days to finish a film which Akshay Kumar will complete in 30 days. Just when we thought it was getting better, she came back with a defense saying ‘tolerable’
NoBut you love to shoot very well!’
The competitive spirit of winning the coveted Coffee Hamper was also missing. ‘Hi God! Aamir please win the hamper,’ Bebo concedes defeat before the fun begins. Once again he sighed and said, ‘I have won this many times. Go for it, Aamir.’ Moreover, he had no answer to questions such as, ‘Who according to you is the best actor and actress of today?’ and ‘Who won’t be invited to Ranbir Kapoor or Shahid Kapoor’s party?’ Obviously, this round was going nowhere, so Karan gave Kareena a chance to redeem herself and make amends with another question, ‘Name an overrated film that you have seen’. “I don’t want to amend. Why are you asking this question?” He protested again.
There came a time where Aamir himself said, ‘
This rapid fire is flopping. No one answered promptly.‘ And that’s exactly what the rapid fire jury thought and Amir won the round by a huge margin.
We wonder what happened to the otherwise enthusiastic and competitive Kareena Kapoor. Maybe motherhood has softened her or it was the constant trolling she got? In fact, when Karan asked her to name the one thing that 40 Plus gives her that she wished she was at 25, Bebo said it was a certain amount of calm and zen that she has now. .
Maybe that’s what we saw in last night’s episode. There were moments when the iconic ‘poo’ came out, but that wasn’t enough.
Yeh dil maange peacock…
