Also, joining them is the absolutely stunningâ€¦ the heroine of â€˜Om Shanti Omâ€™, who is on her way to becoming a super starâ€¦ none other than the gorgeous Deepika Padukone. Make sure you catch Shah Rukh, Farah and Deepika in this weekâ€™s piping hot episode of Koffee with Karan on Sunday, August 26th at 9 p.m. on Star One and Star World.
Itâ€™s home turf for Shahrukh and Farah as they have been on Koffee with Karan more than 4 times each! They jokingly remark, â€œWe have been here almost as much as youâ€. Karan, Shah Rukh and Farah, who share an excellent camaraderie, have an absolute ball on the show, as they leave no opportunity to mock each other! Farah admits that marriage has changed her and has given her a new perspective in life! Karan and Farah reminisce some funny incidents while they were shooting for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and have a hearty laugh. Shah Rukh, on the other hand who is at his wittiest best and looking super cool with his new hairdo and well toned body tells Karan that he had promised Farah, if ever he would strip, it would be for her film! Speaking about â€˜Om Shanti Omâ€™, Farah and Shah Rukh keep their fingers crossed and are hoping that it lives up to its huge expectations! Joining them is the very beautiful Deepika Padukone who shares that she was nervous while shooting for â€˜Om Shanti Omâ€™ but, Farah and Shah Rukh made her feel very comfortable. And when quizzed, if she was dating Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika expectedly replied the clichÃ©, â€œWe are friends.â€
The extremely witty Shah Rukh and the very blunt Farah â€¦ the rapid fire round sure had a lot of fire! Shah Rukhâ€™s personal habit, which irritates Farah the most? If Farah woke up one morning and realized she has become Shah Rukh, what would she do? If Shah Rukh was made President of India, what would he do? Beside himself, his choice for the host of KBC would be? Who according to Shah Rukh is the sexiest working Indian actress today? Who wins the coffee hamper! Wait and watch!
