Karan Johar is back with the spicy and entertaining chat show, Koffee With Karan. With the show in its sixth season, he brought two of the most successful leading ladies from the film industry, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt on the coffee couch. While the ladies refrained from accepting their future plans with their better halves, they covertly accepted their relationships with Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor when Karan kept asking questions.
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.

There was discussion whether they have been together at a point in presence of Katrina Kaif as well as she has also dated RK.
