In a behind-the-scenes video of the chat show that is now doing the rounds on social media, Karan is seen in a lavender suit and Kajol in a maroon salwar suit, seated side by side opposite host and veteran actor Simi Garewal, who is dressed, no prize for guessing, white.

In the video, Karan is seen telling Kajol to do her hair on the other side of her neck. But Kajol claims her microphone is on that side. When Karan doesn’t understand and insists that she do as he says, she tells him in characteristically forceful fashion that it would affect her sound. She also sarcastically calls him a “brain surgeon” and asks how he is a filmmaker. Karan then replies with his trademark humor: “Television is not my medium.”

The history of Kajol and Karan

Kajol and Karan became friends on the sets of Aditya Chopra’s 1995 directorial debut Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, where she was the lead actress and he was an assistant director. She next starred in his 1998 directorial debut, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. They reunited for two more blockbusters: Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) and My Name Is Khan (2010).

Kajol has also starred in a number of other films backed by Karan’s Dharma Productions, such as Siddharth P Malhotra’s We Are Family (2010) and Kayoze Irani’s upcoming feature debut, Sarzaamen. At one point, Karan considered Kajol as his good luck charm. So she had cameos in his films in which she did not play the lead, including Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and Student of the Year (2012).

They also suffered a blow in 2015 when Karan said Kajol had killed “every emotion” he had for her over the past 25 years. However, the two patched things up a few years later.

Kajol will next be seen in Do Patti. Karan is gearing up for the release of his production, Kill.
