Bright Times News: Karan Johar, the host of Koffee With Karan, was determined to elicit a confession from guest Ananya Panday on Thursday’s episode. Ananya, who was introduced by Karan in Student of the Year 2, appeared on the chat show with her Liger co-star Vijay Deverakonda. Karan also serves as a co-producer on Liger.
On the show, Karan kept implying that Ananya isn’t well-liked in the industry and that she, too, doesn’t care for them. Karan didn’t stop there, interrogating Ananya about her relationships with Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor and predicting jealousy when Ananya’s childhood best friends Shanaya Kapoor and Suhana Khan made their acting debuts.
During the Bingo round, Ananya revealed that she had turned down a co-advance, stars, and warrant, and when she asked, she named her Student of the Year 2 co-star Tara Sutaria. “She kept kissing and hugging me on the couch,” Ananya explained.
Karan was taken aback. “Tara Sutaria?” he inquired. And Ananya agreed. She claimed, however, that she ‘ignored’ her advances. “That’s fine; you’re not interested in Tara.” “I love her, but…” Ananya responded. Karan couldn’t stop laughing. “You don’t love her,” he said.
During another round of quick questions, Karan directly asked Ananya, “Are you jealous of your contemporaries?” “No, but there is healthy competition,” Ananya replied. I have my reservations. On the show, you’re going to make me cry. I get insecure about things because I want to be the best.”
His next question to her was, “Is there anyone in the business you don’t like?” “No, right now I like everyone,” Ananya replied. Karan then asked, “Do you think someone doesn’t like you?” “I don’t know if they don’t like me, but I think people don’t like me,” Ananya replied. I can see why people dislike me. I’m not surprised.”
Later in the episode, Karan and Ananya played the two truths and one lie game. “I kiss and tell, and I despise my contemporaries,” she said. She asked Karan to guess which of the two statements was true and which a lie was. Karan stated that he is certain she kisses and tells, implying that this was a true statement.
“But I also believe she despises her contemporaries and is lying about the fact.” That is not only not a lie but also the truth. I can tell she’s uninterested in her contemporaries…” Karan continued. “I’m not required to respond,” Ananya stated. “You didn’t have to say anything, but your face said it all,” Karan concluded.
