Throwback: When Imran Khan took a sly dig at Karan Johar on Koffee With Karan

On the third season of Koffee with Karan in 2010, Imran Khan appeared alongside Ranbir Kapoor. Imran, who made his acting debut in the 2008 film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, responded sarcastically in the episode when host Karan Johar asked him to whom he would gift a book on film direction for dummies. Check out their video


January 13 was Imran Khan’s 40th birthday. In 2008, Imran debuted in Bollywood with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Imran made an appearance on Koffee with Karan season 3 in 2010, during the height of his acting career, with Ranbir Kapoor. During the “rapid fire round,” one of the answers caught viewers’ attention in addition to Imran and Ranbir’s friendship. Imran subtly poked fun at host Karan Johar with his response, and Ranbir even gave him a high-five for it.

Imran was questioned by Karan on the show, “To whom would you suggest these books? Film direction for dummies?” After that, Imran had responded, “Can I give it to you?” Ranbir gave Imran a high-five and told the director, “I still really want to work with you, like badly,” while Karan reacted shocked to Imran’s response.

A video of their interaction was shared on Reddit and attracted all kinds of reactions. One person joked, “It was after this that Karan Johar made sure Imran Khan doesn’t get any movies. PS: it’s a joke.” Another one said, “…and he never worked again in the film industry.” A fan missed the old Imran, and wrote, “Laut aao 2010 wale Imran Khan (come back 2010’s Imran Khan).”
