Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan is based around the concept of celebs indulging in a fun conversation with the filmmaker, often joking and pulling leg of their contemporaries in the process. Right from Kareena Kapoor Khan questioning Priyanka Chopra on her ‘accent’ to Sonam Kapoor taking a dig at plastic surgeries of actors, the show has been the hub of many controversies.
Emraan Hashmi, who is known for his candid demeanor was seen with his uncle Mahesh Bhatt in season 4 of the series. In the rapid fire round, when Karan Johar asked him what is the first thing that comes to mind when he says Aishwarya Rai, the “Murder” actor was quick to reply ‘plastic’.
Later, in an interview to Hindustan Times, the 43-year-old said that the format of the show is such that a lot of things are said in jest and that he did not mean any of it. Further adding that he is a great admirer of Aishwarya’s work, Emraan said that people should not make a big deal about the whole thing and that if he has rubbed Aishwarya the wrong way, he is deeply remorseful.
However, reportedly, this did not go down well with Aishwarya, who since has avoided Emraan on many counts, even saying in some interviews that the worst she has been called is ‘fake and plastic’. Source
