Koffee Break Karan Johar: Here’s Why He Chose To End His Popular  Show

“Too  much  , too long, too tired.”

This is  how a friend  of Karan Johar sums up the  reasons for the end of his very popular  chat show Koffee With Karan.

Apparently Karan was under a  lot of pressure to  revive the  popular talkshow for another season on Star.But he decided against it.

Says the friend, “I think the next season was going to be the last.Karan had already started curating his list of guests. But then he realized that the guests were either repeats or  not interesting enough. How many times can he call Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh,Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan?”

The plan was to start the next season with either of the two big newly-married celebrity couples Ranbir-Alia or Katrina-Vicky Kaushal. Apparently this did  not work out, as  the grooms were reluctant to be hauled over the  coals so soon after the wedding.

Says the friend, “A sense  of sameness was creeping in. Karan wanted to end Koffee With Karan while it was still  the  crackling entertainment that it is known to be.”

There was also the time factor. Karan feels the show takes up too much of his time. Right now he is immersed  in directing Rocky Aur Rani Ki Amar Kahani and then he wants to  move on to his next directorial,the ambitious costume drama Takht which  stars  almost everyone who has been on  Koffee With Karan.

So it’s  goodbye to Koffee With  Karan for now. Although with Karan, you can never say  never again.Kabhi alvida na kehna!
