In what’s being termed as a coup by filmmaker Karan Johar, his new edition of chat show will have Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor as the first guests on Koffee With Karan. A report by Mumbai Mirror said that both stars will be Janhvi and her half brother Arjun have reportedly confirmed their participation as the first guests of Koffee With Karan 6.
“It’s going to be a special episode as it marks their first joint appearance, in which they open up about their relationship,” Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying.
Both Janhvi and Arjun have bonded well particularly after the tragic death of Sridevi in February this year. Arjun was credited with displaying immense maturity in forgetting his bitter past and acting as protective shield around Janhvi and her younger sister Khushi Kapoor
Janhvi also made her incredibly successful Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Dhadak, which went on to collect more than Rs 100 crore at the box office.
Arjun is Boney Kapoor’s son with his first wife Mona Shourie Kapoor, while Janhvi was born to his second wife Sridevi.
Karan has been very excited about the sixth edition of his chat show, which is famous for its guests making controversial remarks. It remains to be seen if both Arjun and Janhvi will open up to talking about the pain that the former went through as a result of Boney Kapoor’s decision to leave Mona Kapoor and marry Sridevi.
In a recent interview to Hindustan Times, Arjun had implied that he had yet to forget his bitter past. He had said, “It’s difficult for me to give a one-off reply, or in a ‘by the way’ manner. I actually need a lot of time to process what has happened.”
The Ki & Ka actor had also said that his decision to protect Janhvi and Khushi post Sridevi’s death was because he ‘felt impulsively at that point’ adding that ‘between me and my sister(Anshula), we felt that it was the right thing to do.’
