Koffee With Karan 6: Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Are Relatable AF!

Hotstar just dropped the latest episode of Koffee With Karan Season 6 and for once it isn’t giving us #FOMO... it’s actually #RelatableAF.

Why? Because Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana just made their ‘coffee debut’ as Karan Johar puts it, and the two boys were as real as it gets.


Five Things from This KWK Episode That Made Us Go ‘Are You Kidding Me?’

1. Ayushmann Khurrana Has Donated Sperm IRL!

We all know that the 'Roadies’ star started off his career in the film industry with a rather unusual movie Vicky Donor – one that dealt with sperm donation as a central topic. But could you have guessed that Khurana had donated sperm in real life?

Candidly talking to Karan, the actor revealed that as part of a Roadies task, Khurrana had to donate his sperm. Talk about taking method-acting to another level!

2. KJo is actually KKJo

Out of sheer randomness, today’s show revealed two very important facts: Ayushmann Khurrana was born as Nishant Khurana, and Karan Johar was born as Rahul Kumar Johar.

What’s even better is that Karan Johar also has the middle name ‘Kumar’. Now we know why he obsesses over the letter ‘K’ so much.

3. Vicky Kaushal In a Serious Relationship

If you have a crush on this tall, dark and handsome actor, we are sorry to break your heart, love. The man just confessed to be being in a serious relationship. While he didn’t name anybody, the actor is rumoured to be in an relationship with actress Harleen Sethi.

4. Ayushmann Khurrana & Vicky Kaushal are Relatable AF

Ayushmann Khurrana, like the good kid he is labelled as, humbly confessed on national television that his success from being an RJ to becoming a Bollywood actor with box office success was anything but a happy accident.

It was a result of careful strategising and waiting for the right debut script. Khurana apparently rejected 5 roles before accepting Vicky Donor.

Similarly, Vicky Kaushal was always hesitant to openly say that he wanted to become a hero because he didn’t think he had the ‘features’ of a conventional Bollywood star.

“I was this lanky fellow, curly hair, crooked teeth, dark I was hesitant to say I want to be a hero.”

5. Karan Johar Thinks Ayushmann is a New Discovery of 2018

But the biggest shocker was Karan Johar thinking that Ayushmann Khurana is a new discovery of 2018.


Maybe for Koffee With Karan, but the industry and its audience were both pretty well aware of this amazing actor since his debut!

Given his sudden awareness of Khurrana, it came as a bigger surprise when Karan expressed his desire to work with Ayushmann in the future.

Truth be told, most of the episode felt as if Karan was auditioning the boys for a movie, and by the end of the episode, he seemed to have made his decision.
