The two most famous Kapoor girls got together on Karan Johar’s couch to have a tête-à-tête and secrets definitely came out. With Kareena’s new role as a mother and Sonam finally giving a breakthrough performance as Neerja, the two had much to talk about, enough to warrant a whole other episode on the season.
These are the highlights of the episode.
Baby, Not a Bumpy Ride
Kareena has made the baby bump fashionable, also making it known that she will not step down from her throne, just because she’s become a mother.
Bebo, who might be working just as hard as she was on the day she joined the film industry, said she shouldn’t be treated any differently, just because she’s a mother now.
Jagga Jasoos, the Pregnant Stalker?
Karan has said in the past that he gets his gossip from Bebo. In this episode, he called both Kareena and Ranbir “voyeuristic” owing to the fact that they stalk all people on the face of the earth!
Kareena knows who is doing - what and where, who is saying - what and where, who’s wearing - what and where and I get texts from her saying “can you explain”, as if I’m responsible for what people wear, do and say!Karan Johar
This came after Kareena said she disapproves of Karan’s “airport” looks and sends him his own photos to question where he picked up his questionable garments from.
Sonam has asked in the past why women don’t get paid as much as men, in the film fraternity and otherwise. She even asked Karan about the wage gap and asked – “Why don’t we get paid as much as John (Abraham) and Varun (Dhawan)?”
After having delivered Neerja, a big hit of 2016 and keeping in mind that Kareena also gave a power-packed performance in Ki and Ka, she asked Karan if he thinks it’s about time female actors get their due.
Don’t you think we can get as big an opening (weekend) as John and Varun?Sonam Kapoor
When asked how Kareena would react if she were stuck in an elevator with ex-boyfriend Shahid, and husband Saif, she surprised the audience by saying she would love to be in that elevator.
She was candid as always and revealed that Saif and Shahid get along extremely well with each other.
I will ask them why wasn’t I cast in Rangoon and we can call Vishal (Bharadwaj) and tell him he’s got his cast for Rangoon right here!Kareena Kapoor Khan
Arjun Kapoor was hot and happening on the show when he came to judge the rapid fire round. Both the ladies got very excited and Arjun said that his biggest achievement since joining the industry was befriending Kareena.
He pointed out the “Bandra Gossip Mafia” which is Karan, Kareena and Ranbir, the three people who always know anything before it happens.
You guys control the film industry and know things before they happen. And if things aren’t happening then you’ll make them happen!Arjun Kapoor
Diplomacy, the New Policy
Sonam had a very diplomatic demeanour on the show which surprised both Bebo and Karan. Though she did ask Karan why things on his show always get sexual and Arjun said that his sister is an ever-so-blabbering and non-diplomatic person.
When Kapoor said that the biggest takeaway for her from Neerja was not the expectancy of getting awards but the fact that she turned vegetarian, Karan said that her “reward for the film was getting a thaali!”
