From their men’s loo stories to the legendary burp, the first episode of Koffee With Karan season 6 was a laugh riot with Deepika and Alia as its guests.
Ahhh… so it finally happened! The first episode of the most happening show ‘Koffee with Karan’ season 6 with Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt was premiered recently. As expected there were lots of revelations and gossips. Here is my view of the episode #spoileralert.
The first episode this season was all about ‘Girl Power’ as both the actresses – Deepika and Alia have had a very successful year at the box office. The ladies discussed their movies ‘Padmavat’ and ‘Raazi’. they talked about how much of a struggle it was and how happy they were with the success of both the movies. The episode was also very special because of the Elephant in the room aka their current relationships that was addressed a lot of times in the episode.
Karan Johar (KJo) started the show by coining up with a new term called ‘Nepospasm’ and explained that it’s the neck spasms he gets every time someone says nepotism. He then invited the lovely Deepika and Alia and started talking about the auspicious ‘Mangalam Bhagwan Vishnu’. Although Deepika tried very hard to evade questions about her wedding, in the end, she accepted that she will be getting married first. Also, Ranveer and Deepika have announced that they will be getting married on 14th and 15th of November 2018. Some true couple goals these two often give us, isn’t it?
Alia spoke about her current relationship with Ranbir Kapoor which is going to complete a year pretty soon. The awkward and the funny moment here was how KJo pointed out that Alia uses Ayan Mukherji to share photos of her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor on Instagram. Deepika, on the other hand, spoke about her 6-year long relationship with Ranveer Singh, she discussed their cute unique display of love through Instagram. We also got to know about “Tutu, Lulu and Zozo” which are the pet names of Ranveer, Alia and Zoya Akhtar given to them by each other respectively.
The three of them – Karan, Deepika and Alia spent the first 15-20 minutes of the episode talking about relationships and how they are completely fine being around their exes. Deepika and Alia spoke about how they are quite comfortable hanging out with each other despite Deepika having dated Ranbir Kapoor in the past and Alia dating him now. As exciting as it was, it felt like there was some sort of an urge and need for them to clarify that there is no ‘bad blood’.
The episode, as usual, had the ‘Rapid Fire’ round which was hilarious apart from that the ladies spoke about what they liked about each other, their love interests and spilled the beans on how they once went to the Men’s loo. So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the first episode was more than just them gossiping about other celebs in the industry. It was light and breezy; it was something that would bring up a smile on your face. Starting from the Nepotism jokes, relationship talks, rapid fires, and with the legendary ‘burp’ the episode was indeed a blast.
To conclude the first episode of Koffee with Karan Season 6 has set up the benchmark and raised
our excitement for upcoming episodes.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
