1. The Nepotism Debate
The whole ongoing nepotism debate got its air on the Koffee with Karan show, when Karan had invited Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan to the show.
When asked who in the movie industry has given her an unnecessary attitude, Kangana named Karan and called him the 'flag-bearer of nepotism' as well as 'movie mafia.' Karan Johar was surprised by the actress's response, and the episode drew attention worldwide.
2. Kareena Kapoor On Priyanka's Accent
Kareena Kapoor said on the third season of Koffee with Karan that she wanted to ask Priyanka Chopra where she got her accent from.
In another episode, Priyanka Chopra replied to Kareena's question by saying, "The same place where her boyfriend gets it from."
3. Hardik Pandya's Sexism & Misogyny
One of the most controversial episodes of Koffee with Karan was with Hardik Pandya KL Rahul. In this episode, Hardik Pandya made a number of sexist and misogynist comments, which left a lot of people offended.
On the show, Pandya boasted about hooking up with multiple women and spoke about how open he is with his parents, saying he had once told them after losing his virginity, "aaj mai kar ke aaya."
He made it sound like an accomplishment, but it didn't end there. He then recalled taking his parents to a party and having them ask him which woman he was seeing, to which he responded by pointing to each one of them, "and they were like waah proud of u beta..."
He went on to discuss more problematic topics, including stalking on Instagram and butt-slapping your teammates. When asked what happens if they both fancy the same girl, Rahul stated it's the girl's decision, but Pandya countered with the sexist viewpoint that it's all about the man's talent and ability to close the deal.
However, neither the BCCI nor India's cricket captain Virat Kohli were comfortable with the remarks.
4. Emraan Hashmi's Comment On Aishwarya Rai & Shraddha Kapoor
During the rapid-fire round in an episode with Emraan Hashmi and his uncle, Mahesh Bhatt, Karan asked Emraan what comes to mind when he hears the name of a certain actress. When Karan asked about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Emraan quickly replied, 'Plastic'.
When asked about Shraddha Kapoor, he said: she should probably eat something.
