In the recent installment of Koffee with Karan Season 8, the host expressed frustration, admitting that the response to the opening episode featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone ‘angered’ him.
Karan Johar has reacted to the incessant trolling for the opening episode of his chat show Koffee with Karan Season 8. The episode featuring real-life actor couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh got a harsh reaction in the form of the viewers speculating if their marriage is on the rocks.
Karan addressed the trolls
While addressing the phenomenon of social media trolling with the guests of his latest episode, Arjun Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, Karan Johar said, “I felt that it was one of the most honest episodes and the most heartfelt episodes I did with Deepika and Ranveer. I think all three of kind of came clean on so much of our emotional heft, so many of our feelings. And then there was a ridiculous kind of aftereffect. I just want to put it out there that episode angered me, and the reaction angered me. I thought it was one of our best episodes. They were outstandingly honest. They were earnest. They spoke so much. They shared so much. They were so gracious. And then you’re f*cking talking about some nonsense. I am like, ‘What do you know about somebody else’s personal life and marraige?’ Tu apne ghar pe dekh na (Look at what’s happening at your own home) is what I wanted to tell them. I wanted to show them my f*cking middle finger! I am like, you know, just shut up.”
