Make no mistake, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, who were on ‘Koffee With Karan’ to promote ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, were totally in the mood together. In fact, Aamir, whom Karan and Kareena considered “boring,” was more outspoken and funnier, and never missed a chance to dig up the host himself. While Aamir certainly seemed to have improved his Koffee game, Kareena, well, not so much.
In fact, Kareena, who has always been outspoken and never taken the diplomatic route during her past appearances on the Koffee couch, seemed to be lacking in action. So much so that Karan pointed out that she was “too full of herself” or “way too diplomatic.” And we couldn’t agree more with Karan when he said that Kareena’s quick round of fire could easily go down in history as the worst in Koffee With Karan history. When asked what she tolerates from Aamir that she would not tolerate in others, she replied that Aamir needs 100-200 days to finish a film that Akshay Kumar would finish in 30 days. Just when we thought it was getting better she came back with a defense and said ‘Tolerate’
nahibut you do like to take pictures and that’s good!’
Also lacked the competitive spirit to win the coveted Koffee basket. ‘Oh God! Aamir, please win the basket,” Bebo said, giving up before the fun even started. Again she sighed and said, “I’ve won this so many times. Go for it, Aamir.’ Plus, she couldn’t answer questions like “Who do you think is the best actor and actress today?” and ‘Who is not invited to Ranbir Kapoor’s or Shahid Kapoor’s party?’ Obviously this round wasn’t going anywhere, so Karan also gave Kareena a chance to redeem herself and make up for it with another question, “Name an overrated movie you’ve seen.” ‘I don’t want to make it up to you. Why are you asking this question?’ she resisted again.
There came a point where Aamir himself said, ”
Flop ho raha hai yeh quick fire. Koi bhi answer nahi diya dhang se.‘ And that was exactly what the rapid-fire jury thought and Aamir won the round by a huge margin.
We wonder what happened to the otherwise feisty and competitive Kareena Kapoor. Maybe motherhood has softened her up or is it the constant trolling that got her down? When Karan asked her to name one thing that 40 plus gives her, she wishes she had at 25, Bebo said it was a certain amount of calm and zen she has now.
Maybe that’s what we saw in the episode last night. There were times when the iconic ‘Poo’ popped up, but not enough. Yeh dil Maange more…
