Koffee with Karan 5 kickstarted on a rocking note with Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan being an unusual but interesting pair on the show. Then, it was Akshay Kumar and the witty Twinkle Khanna who bowled us with their crazy humour and tongue-in-cheek remarks. Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan’s bromance was also much enjoyed. And today we finally got to see Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh coming together for the first time on national TV.
The episode was an out and out laugh riot thanks to Ranbir’s antics and Ranveer’s befikre comments. But the best part was obviously the much-awaited rapid fire round where these two handsome hunks battled out against each other for the much coveted hamper. It was no less than a war, as on stake was the egos of the biggest heroes of Bollywood. Ranveer was pitched against two time hamper-winner,Ranbir, so it was a do or die situation for him. Putting his best foot forward, Ranveer made one of the most controversial statements of the millennium.We are talking about his statement on Kangana Ranaut. Yes not Deepika Padukone, not Katrina Kaif but Kangana Ranaut.
It so happened that Karan Johar asked Ranveer that which actress would he like to set up Ranbir with. And without even taking a second, Ranveer uttered Kangana Ranaut’s name. Now the highlight of the show was not this that he took her name, instead it was Ranbir’s impassive reaction. Neither did he smile, nor did he get offended. He just sat back with his straight face.
This was not the only time when Kangana’s name was taken in the show. Later, during another game when Ranveer failed at a given point he jokingly mocked Rakhi Sawant and said in her peculiar voice – “Karan chh-eating hai ye.” On seeing this, Ranbir asked if he is mimicking Kangana (as she too has a squeaky voice). Ranveer laughed and asked “Kangana is all over your mind or what?” Hmm.. now you tell us what should we make out of this.
Now we don’t need to tell you why is Ranveer taking Kangana’s name a big deal. You would remember that Kangana and Ranbir’s names were being taken together just a few months ago. When she was going through a tough time in her legal battle with Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir had become her shoulder. They were even spotted at Kareena Kapoor Khan-hosted Ki & Ka success bash and were also said to be constantly in touch through messages. How can we forget the hashtag ‘#nowranbirkangana’, which was the top Twitter trend for a brief while.
However there were reports that suggested that Ranbir was not very happy with the linkup rumours and was in fact planning to pull up few publications who were carrying these reports. The two have, since then, remained tight lipped about the entire thing. Media too had become silent on the entire matter. But with Ranveer Singh’s recent remark, we are sure, their linkup rumours will once again catch fire. ALSO READ: Ranbir Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut are NOT dating!
In the end we just wanna thank Karan Johar for bringing these two powerhouses together under one roof and upping our excitement levels on this otherwise thanda weekend. What are your thoughts on the episode ? Tell us in the comments box below.
