Koffee With Karan 6: Deepika Padukone covertly reveals wedding plans with Ranveer Singh, opens up about Alia Bhatt dating her ex Ranbir Kapoor

The episode began with Karan Johar making an interesting introduction about the films and how leading ladies have blockbuster films this year. With that being said, he also subtly took a jibe at Kangana Ranaut and the birth of nepotism and how he became the face of it. He said that if now he hears the word nepotism, he gets nepo-spasm in his neck. Both of the ladies talked about their films Padmaavat and Raazi and how it became blockbuster hits at the box office.

Moving onto the next conversation when Karan addressed the elephant in the room which was Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika Padukone has had a history with RK since her debut in the film industry whereas Alia Bhatt is dating RK at the moment. He talked about the time when Alia, RK, Ranveer Singh, and Deepika along with Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan were at Karan Johar’s residence for a get-together and there wasn’t any awkwardness between Alia, RK and Deepika. Karan went onto reveal that how Ranveer and Ranbir share a pretty amazing dynamic with each other and at the get-together, they were sitting at the bar and having a very happy and intense conversation. He revealed how appreciative both of them are about each other’s work.

Deepika and Alia told Karan he need not make it awkward between the two women as there was nothing to be awkward about. Talking about the dynamic now she shares with Ranbir, Deepika revealed how she reached a place in her where she can hang out with him without any worry. She said, “I think acceptance of the past, of today and of the future and of everything. I think just accepting the more you keep denying to yourself. I am not someone who holds onto something and I can’t hold onto bad feelings and negativity. I think understanding why certain things happen, why two people cannot be together or are not together. I think the understanding of people and personalities and of the situation and letting go. I think to accept the reality to yourself because you have to live with that and you have to be peace with yourself at the end of the day.  I think it only gets better and I think it couldn’t have gotten better. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I think the relationship we share today is what I value the most and I don’t think it could have been in a better place.”

Though Alia Bhatt refrained from confirming her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, she was accepting of the fact throughout the episode they are indeed a couple. Alia also said there is no awkwardness between the three of them. “It is what is. There is nothing to feel bad about and we are all very happy and at peace and very content.

Moving on the fun sections when Karan Johar talked about Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s online PDA and how lovey-dovey they have become on social media in recent months. She even admitted covertly that they have been together for six years since 2011. He also talked about Alia Bhatt broke the internet after Sonam Kapoor‘s wedding after posting a picture with Ranbir Kapoor which made it official that they are indeed dating. They even discussed how their moms Neetu Kapoor and Soni Razdan are fond of each other and them being together. The moms had even shared pictures of them having dinner during Ranbir’s birthday celebration.

There was discussion whether they have been together at a point in presence of Katrina Kaif as well as she has also dated RK. While Alia is friendly with Katrina, she admitted she has always shared a comfort level with Deepika which dates back to a couple of years when they attended the Coldplay concert together.

Deepika admitted being dumped, later on finally admitted she will be the one who will get married first. Interestingly, this evening Ranveer and Deepika officially announced that they are getting married on November 14th and 15th this year.

Alia was very upfront this time about several aspects of her life like friends with benefits relationship, having a rebound soon after the break up and soon on. The rapid-fire round was amazing and the two of them answered questions keeping it pretty nice. Alia won the hamper this time. Another fun game segment was introduced this season is ‘Not without my phone’ where they had to make a call to either a leading lady or actor and tell them what Karan asked them to do. Besides, he asked them to click a selfie and upload, and guess the actors through their shirtless bodies and bios.

It is a known fact that Tiger Shroff is a fitness enthusiast. The actor likes to follow his much disciplined lifestyle and likes to call it a day quite early in the evening. The star kid also has rarely made his presence felt at a late night party. But he managed to tweak his lifestyle rules a little for his special Student Of The Year 2 team which also consists of director Punit Malhotra, newbies Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria.

Tiger Shroff makes a rare appearance for Student Of The Year 2 team

Readers may be aware that Karan Johar who was keen on taking the franchise of Student Of The Year franchise ahead, roped in Tiger Shroff to take it forward with a sequel. The film was being shot in many locations including Dehradun where they recreated the St. Teresa School which was also a part of the first instalment. Now that all their hard work and shoot of the film has wrapped up, the team planned to celebrate the special day.

The post wrap up bash of Student Of The Year 2 was held recently with the cast, the filmmaker being present. Considering that it was held late in the evening, Tiger Shroff would have otherwise skipped the party. But still, the actor decided to make changes in his usual schedule. We hear that Tiger took some time out from his usual schedule and decided to spend it with the film’s team. In fact, the team was thrilled to have him and they even shared about it on social media.

Director Punit Malhotra took to Instagram to share the picture and captioned the same saying, “One of those rare occasions that @tigerjackieshroff steps out in the night?? .. only cos it’s a schedule wrap.” Well, we are equally surprised too!

Coming to Student Of The Year 2, the film is expected to feature different characters set against the backdrop of the same school in a different year. After the retirement of Dean Yoginder Vashisht aka Rishi Kapoor, now the dean will be replaced by actor Sameer Soni. The film, which was expected to release this year, now has another release date.

Just as India’s Me Too movement is getting momentum with every passing day, new faces and cases are coming to light. While we were shocked with names like Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Nana Patekar coming out, here is a man accusing screen writer Mushtaq Sheikh of sexually harassing him under the pretext of giving him a role in a film. The victim is none other than late television actress’s ex boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh. In a detailed account, he has stated how he was abused by Sheikh since 2004 and ruined his career after he refused to give in to his advances. He stated that just after Rahul had won pageant, Mushtaq approached him and made an offer and started contacting him with regard to the same. Rahul said that Mushtaq repeatedly called him to his flat and once even forced himself upon him while driving through deserted Array Colony Road in Mumbai.

Rahul is the first man from the industry to come out with his story. He said that he has nothing to be ashamed of and he wants the truth to come out. Rahul was in the news two years ago after his girlfriend Pratyusha Banerjee commited suicide in their shared flat and he was held by police for the abetment of suicide. Since then, there hasn’t been much news about him till this time.

Rahul has set an example by coming forward and talking about harassment meted out to him, demonstrating that the movement is not gender specific. The industry is also taking cognizance of this matter and is taking all Me Too allegations very seriously.

After Shweta Pandit, more women come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Anu Malik


‘);

The #MeToo movement has taken down many big names from different industries. As women have come forward to tell their sexual harassment stories, it has reached the Indian film industry where many have been accused of sexual harassment, abuse and misconduct. Just recently, singer Shweta Pandit accused music composer Anu Malik of sexual harassment and recalled an incident that has stayed with her since her teen years. Meanwhile, more women have come forward with their stories against Anu Malik.

After Shweta Pandit, more women come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Anu Malik

One woman has accused him of rubbing his body against her and when she expressed her shock, he apologized meekly. This dates back to the 90s when she had met the music composer while he was recording a song. The same woman met him another time at his residence to discuss a fundraiser event. After the discussion was over, he allegedly made inappropriate sexual advances towards her which really made her uncomfortable. She tried to leave but he held her hand and then apologized saying that he was a really passionate guy. Detailing the incident, the women revealed that he unzipped his pants and asked her to lick him. When she said no and told him that she wanted to leave, he allegedly pulled her back by her hair and stuffed her face in his lap while hurling abuses.

Another woman, who has accused Anu Malik, has alleged that she refused to be a part of Indian Idol 10 as a wild card entry as she was sexual harassed by the music composer seven years ago. It happened during her struggling days when she had met the composer at Sahara Studios in Mumbai. During their second meeting, he asked her whether she had a boyfriend. When she was leaving, he allegedly pulled her back and hugged her while running his hands over her body. When she pushed him away, he said that he was a happy with his wife but he is a sensitive man.

In her lengthy post, Shweta Pandit had earlier revealed that he had asked her for a kiss on his cheek when she was merely 15 years old. Describing the incident on Twitter, Shweta wrote, “He was recording a group song with Sunidhi and Shaan for the film ‘Awara Pagal Deewana’, when my mother and I walked in the monitor room. He told me to wait in the small cabin inside where singers sang at Empire studio. It was just him and me there. I sang it well so he said, ‘I’ll give you this song with Sunidhi and Shaan but first give me a kiss now’. He then smiled, what I’d recall the most evil grin I’ve seen. I went numb and pale in the face. I was only 15 years old then, still in school”.

Anu Malik’s legal representative has released his statement and denied all the allegations. The statement read, “The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless. My client respects the #metoo movement but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious.”

“I am all for the #MeToo movement, but having said that, I think this campaign is being blown out of proportion” – Shatrughan Sinha


‘);

Your dear friend Subhash Ghai stands accused of multiple sexual offences. Your comments?
What happened to innocent until proven guilty? I am all for the #MeToo movement, never in my 40-year career have I misbehaved with any woman. I treat every lady with utmost respect. Having said that, I think this Me Too campaign is being blown out of all proportion.

In what way?
While the cause was definitely noble and praiseworthy it has now become a free-for-all. Anyone can name and shame anyone. Reputations and jobs are being lost through a trial by media. To all the women who are aggrieved I say, please go to court and make sure the wrongdoers are punished.

You’ve done some terrific films with him, would you work with Subhash Ghai in future?
Why not? If he is proven innocent, why not? Even if he is proven guilty, and he serves the punishment given to him, I’d work with him. Sanjay Dutt served his jail sentence and is back working in our large-hearted film industry. In fact we had no problem working with him even when he was an accused in a serious case.

Many of the top stars and directors have vowed not to work with sexual offenders?
This hypocrisy I can’t understand. They have no problem working with Sanjay Dutt who has been convicted. But they want to blacklist people whose guilt is yet to be proven. Just to look like heroes of the #MeToo movement.

A-list actors have dissociated themselves from tainted directors?
I don’t want to name anyone. But I will say this. Sau chuhe khaa kar billi haj ko chali. Those seeking to perch themselves on a high moral-ground should look into their conscience. The problem of sexual exploitation doesn’t end with some names being put out in the social media. This is just the beginning. The problem runs much deeper.

Your tainted party-colleague M J Akbar refuses to step down. What is your take on his brazen attitude?
I don’t even know which political party I belong to any more! Having said that, M J Akbar is a friend. And a wise one. I know him from the time he revolutionized journalism in this country. He knows what he is doing, and why. I believe he has employed 97 lawyers to defend him against charges (of sexual harassment). He should’ve employed 3 more lawyers. Century ban jata…Seriously, how can he afford such a massive legal fleet? I can’t afford it if I ever need it.

SCOOP: Both Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone to MARRY in November?


‘);

If close friends of the two female superstars are to be believed, both Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra plan to get married to their respective boyfriends next month.

There is some weighty speculation about both the weddings taking place on the same date at different venues in different parts of the world. This seems  unlikely, if not altogether impossible, considering the practical problems involved in two such high-profile weddings happening simultaneously.

SCOOP Both Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone to MARRY in November

On the other hand, some sources close to both the divas feel their mutual rivalry could be extended to their weddings as well.
“Whatever Priyanka wants, Deepika wants too. When Priyanka charted a route from Bollywood to Hollywood, Deepika tried the same. Coincidentally, they’ve both decided to marry men from the entertainment industry. And for all we know, the two weddings may happen on the same day in November, albeit in different parts of the world,” says a well-informed source.

If sources are to be believed, Priyanka Chopra and her fiance Nick Jonas plan to marry at Jodhpur while Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have chosen Lake Como as their wedding venue.

If the two weddings happen on the same day or close to one another, invitees would find it tough flying from one to the other.

A director close to both the actresses says, “If Deepika and Priyanka decide to marry on the same day or close to each other, I may skip both the weddings rather than attend one.”
