What’s Koffee With Karan 7 without Kartik Aaryan? Netizens hail the actor as ‘show runner’
Even though Kartik Aaryan hasn’t graced the koffee couch this season, his name has been mentioned in almost every episode. Netizens now feel Karan Johar should invite the actor, who according to viewers is running the show.
So far four entertaining episodes of Koffee With Karan 7 have premiered on Disney+Hotstar. While Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt kick-started the season, Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor shared their love for cheese in episode two. Then came Akshay Kumar and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, followed by Liger stars Ananya Panday and Vijay Deverakonda. But according to netizens, Bollywood heartthrob Kartik Aaryan is the show runner of this season, even though he hasn’t graced the koffee couch this year. This is because his name has come up in almost every episode.
In the first episode Ranveer mimicked Kartik along with Varun Dhawan, Hrithik Roshan and Dharmendra, while in episode two it was suggested that apart from Sara the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 star has also dated Janhvi Kapoor. Then in last night’s episode, KJo claimed that Ananya was in a romantic relationship with Kartik before she dated Ishaan Khatter. Netizens have now slammed the filmmaker for bringing up the actor’s name so often. Some have even accused him of selling season 7 only on Kartik’s name. Take a look at some angry tweets:
Kartik and Karan had joined forces for the very first time in 2019 for Dostana 2. However, two years later reports suggested that they had a fallout because of which the actor was dropped from the project. Then one day KJo’s production house Dharma officially announced that they have decided to recast for Dostana 2. Ever since then, rumors of their cold war have been doing the rounds. Kartik, who was a part of last season, was not invited for season 7. Nor was he a part of the filmmaker’s grand 50th birthday bash, which was attended by almost all the big celebs of the industry.
Well, Karan and Kartik did have a mini chat on the last episode when Ananya called the actor and asked him to say ‘Hey Karan it’s me’. Her Pati Patni Aur Woh co-star had also revealed that he was at home promoting Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 at that time.
