Koffee With Devgan-Kajol Was More Than Just Frivolous Fun

Kajol and Karan Johar are besties and Devgan  wanted  to be no part of his wife’s friends’circle. Kajol  was fine with that.

This  was  one of  the ‘true confessions’that emerged  from  the  hour-long tete-a-tete with  the couple in this week’s  episode of  Koffee With Karan..Kajol, God bless her ebullient soul, threatened  to take  over the conversation. But Devgan held his own. We now know for sure who wears  the  pants  in the  Devgan residence.

Married for  19 years the  couple demonstrated a certain casual comfort and lack of affectation  in each  other’s company where, as  they said, couples  don’t necessarily have  to keep talking to one  another to prove they are compatible.

 Lest we forget, Karan Johar’s  talk show is about talking.And he spoke  a lot,as usual.

He  apologized to Kajol for  the very public fall-out that they had  recently. I was wrong, he said. You were wrong, Kajolseemed to agree.While Kajol and  Karan made amends , Devgan  looked as though he  couldn’t care less.

I suppose  the  secret  of  their  long-lasting togetherness was revealed  on  that couch  with Karan Johar. Kajol talks.And AjayDevgan DOESN’T listen. But the bantering apart, I could see a whole lot of mutual  respect in this marriage  in  the wayDevgan praised his wife for being a  good daughter-in-law,in the bemused admiration he expressed while ostensibly teasing her  about cheap shopping online,  in the pride  in his  voice when he  spoke  about his two children, and in the  sporting way he ribbed her  about her  obsession with selfies  during her budhapa(old age).

So are  Karan Johar and  Ajay Devgan friends finally? I don’t think so. They  inhabit different world , and that’s what makes  their marriage work. This  doesn’t mean  Devgan will keep that  promise of coming to dinner at Karan’s place.

Don’t raise  your  hopes too high, Karan. Ajay Devgan  came on your show because his wife dragged him along. This is just not his scene.
