TEES MAAR KHAN *ing – Salman Khan
Salman is the present, and the present is Salman. Though Sallu has always been one of the most popular actors, and did an extended cameo in Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, the Dabangg star has yet to appear in a season of Koffee With Karan. Given his current success ratio and unmatched popularity, Salman should feature in the premiere episode of season 4, preferably solo, but his brothers, Sohail and Arbaaz can feature as additional guests to give us a perspective on Chulbul Pandey Himself. With Salmans cheeky wit and Karans repertoire of firebrand questions, surely this will be one of the best episodes yet.
MY NAME IS BALAN *ing SRK + Vidya Balan
On one hand, we have Kjo’s favourite- Shahrukh Khan – who needs no introduction. On the other hand, Vidya Balan, who is quickly becoming the flagbearer for women orientated cinema, one hit at a time. This is one pair we’ve all been longing to see on the silver screen for years, yet for some reason; directors seem uninterested in pairing them.. Hopefully seeing the two of them on KWK will be nothing but ‘Entertainment, Entertainment, and Entertainment’.
THE OUTSIDERS *ing Kangna Ranaut, Sunny Leone, Nawazudin Siddiqui.
The changing face of Bollywood over the past decade or so, has allowed these unconventional stars to emerge. From pornstar Sunny Leone, to Kangna Ranaut whos struggled to grab a foothold in the industry for years, and Nawazdin Siddiqui, the unconventional looking actor that’s taken us by storm with his recent performances, these bollywood outsiders all have a unique story to tell. Kangna , who is fast becoming one of the most entertaining celebs to read interviews of, with her various jibes (Blue blooded babas, married people that should be seeing psychiatrists), alluded to her struggle on Indias Most Desirable. Despite being one of the easiest bollywood targets for jokes, the girl can act, and her story is admirable. Sunny Leone (more popularly known as Funny leone) has got to be the most unconventional Heroine in the history of Bollywood, with her background of other cinematic avenues ;), but despite her past, she’s hardly someone you can ignore. Nawazudiin Siddiqui, is undoubtedly the most talented new actor on the block, receiving accolades and awards for all his films last year whether it was Gangs of Wasseypur, Talaash or Kahaani. Would love to see these three ‘outsiders’ that are making a name for themselves despite the sea of star kids, together on KWK.
FROM BOOM TO DHOOM *ing Aamir Khan – Katrina Kaif
On one end, we have the perfectionist himself, Aamir Khan, on the other hand, Katrina Kaif, one of the most bankable & popular actresses of today. I can’t wait till Dhoom 3 releases to see the hot upcoming pair together. With aamirs killer instincts, and Katrinas commercial script sense, its bound to be a dhamaka, ironically one is known as the best actors of all time, and the other is hardly known for their talent, however they look surprisingly good together, so who cares.
EK MAIN HOON AUR EKK TU *ing Emraan Hashmi, Kareena Kapoor
Certainly one of the most unlikely pairings ever, that’s going to be hitting the screens in 2014, Kareena Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi. Bebo, the firebrand actress,began her career like any quintessential heroine of Bollywood did, going for a mix of glamour and talent in her quick rise to success, while on the other hand, Emraan Hashmi, whom success never alluded, never made it high up on the popularity lists, being known more for his onscreen smooches than anything else. ‘The Dirty Picture’ changed it all, and the Casanova Emraan shall be seen romancing the style Diva in a big banner project helmed by Akshay Roy. Their different cinematic backgrounds and contrasting personalities is bound to make for an interesting episode, maybe we’ll even find out if they’ll be smooching onscreen soon?
EPISODES 6- 10:
GEN NEXT (Sonam-Varun), (Deepika, Ranveer) (Anushka, Ranbir) (Arjun Kapoor, Siddharth Malhotra) ( Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt)
With the next generation of Actors & Actresses making waves with their popularity and amazing performances, I’ve paired them up in different combos. Sonam and Varun, a pair im dying to see together onscreen, who may reveal the secrets they tease each other about on twitter. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, who individually were two of the most entertaining guests in Season 3, are a must see, esp as the rumour mill indicates that there is more than just onscreen chemistry between the two. Ranbir Kapoor and Anuskha Sharma, easily the most talented pair of the lot and potentially most good looking pair, are still waiting for the much delayed ‘Bombay Velvet’ to take off. Till then, the vibrant personalities can entertain us together, and possibly spark a romance too ;) Parineeti and Alia can share some girlie talk together, while Arjun Kapoor and Siddharth Malhotra talk about being bollywoods new Blue eyed Boys!
EPISODE 11 :
PITCH PERFECT *ing Ayushmann and Priyanka
Priyanka Chopra, who easily one of the best actresses currently, and Ayushmann Khurranna, unanimously deemed as the best debutante of 2012 for Vicky Donor, share a common musical talent. Despite the silly lyrics, Priyanka’s international musical debut, ‘In My City’ became quite popular, and Ayushmann’s ‘Pani Da’ and ‘Sadi galli’ have become the rage of the nation. Would love to see em duet!
SISTERS DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES *ing Reema Kagti, Gauri shinde, Zoya Akhtar
As traditional in all KWK seasons, an episode featuring the hottest directors of the day is a must. Barring Zoya Akhar & Farah Khan, the female directors of the industry have been largely ignored. And with ‘Talaash’ ‘English Vinglish’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ being pathbreaking, and commercially successful, my directors picks are Reema , Zoya and Gauri Shinde.
kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein *ing Amitji and Rekha
Two of the most iconic Bollywood stars of all time – Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, who were part of one of the greatest mystery love affairs of all time. Though Big B has always been mum on the subject, Rekhaji has in the past let out little snippets of their affair. Kjo’s attempt to get Rekha-ji on his show has previously failed; maybe a Koffee date with Big B will seal the deal for the yesteryear sex symbol.
TWO STATES *ing Asin, Ileana D’cruz
Two popular Telegu Actresses, Asin and Ileana D’cruz, are making their way to the top in bollywood. Asin, has been a part of multiple hit films, while Ileana has won multiple accolades for her debut in 2012’s Barfi.
MAIN KHILADI TU ANARI *ing Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar
Easily the two actors with the best comic timing onscreen, these two will be a treat to see displaying their innate sense of humour together on KWK.
PHOOL AUR KANTE *ing AJAY DEVGAN – SONAKSHI SINHA
The two recent ‘golden kela’ award winners, are bound to make for a ‘must watch show’. The reserved Ajay Devgn, opened up on season 3, displaying his cheeky wit, and insight on superstar wife, Kajol, making it one of the most loved episodes. Sonakshi, certainly one of the most sporting current stars, who acknowledges and appreciates the multitude of jokes aimed in her direction, from weight issues, to the size of her forehead and her love for older men – certainly has volumes to share about her quick rise to success.
INDIA’S MOST DESIRABLE *ING HRITHIK, JOHN
Widely acknowledged as the most desirable men in Bollywood, Hrithik & John have topped the sexiest list for years in succession, always just beating the other to the top of the list. While John’s body was his only claim to fame, he is now becoming one of the most sought after producers with the recent success of ‘Vicky Donor’. Hrithik , however, made a historic debut, giving all his contemporaries a run for his money over the years with his breathtaking performances and runaway blockbusters. The two haven’t shared screen space together yet, and this may be the only chance to see Indias most desiable men together!
KUCH KHATTI KUCH MEETHI *ing Aishwarya , Kajol
The most beautiful woman in the world meets the spiciest actress ever. One is ever diplomatic, the other never minces her words. Theyre the prototypes for successful actresses post marriage, and in the wait for their return to the screens, lets watch the irrevent Kajol and elegant Aishwarya bond.
AJNABEE *ING BIPASHA, IMRAN
Bipasha Basu, is easily the sexiest actress in the industry, while Imran is one of the ‘Guy next door’ style heroes. Thought the two have nothing in common, id love to see em chatting over Koffee, with Bipasha dishing out her streetwise views on everything, while Imran shares his story about trying to make a name for himself under the Shadow of multitalented superstar Uncle Aamir.
THE RETURN OF THE QUEEN- season finale Karisma, Madhuri, Sridevi
One of the latest trends in Bollywood, is to make a comeback, and almost every yesteryear diva is trying to jump on the bandwagon. Whether it’s the dancing queen ‘Madhuri Dixit’, or the ‘Bhoot’ star Manisha Koraila. Though some came back with a bang(Sridevi – English Vinglish), Others efforts went unnoticed (Karisma-Dangerous Isshq, Madhuri-Aaja Nachle). Imagine seeing these three most prolific yesteryear actresses sharing the same couch!
