What can we say about a chat show where the most lively moment occurred when one of the star guests said he wanted to pee. Host Karan Johar reminded Varun Dhawan that his was a classy show.
“Why? Classy people don’t pee?” Varun shot back.
This was the classiest exchange on an episode that touched new levels of banality. Wait don’t go away.I will tell you how.
One of the rapidfire questions was about which Varun preferred : good sex or a big hit.
“A big hit is like great sex,” Varun shouted like a schoolboy who had just discovered a new sex toy in his teacher’s drawer.
Throughout the inane babble Varun played the brat. Katrina tried hard to look interested in ehat he colleague on the couch was saying, laughed at all his jokes and tried to humour her host. But her heart was clearly not in it. And she just couldn’t cover up her supreme indifference with some adept acting.
When has she ever?
Even when Salman Khan came on screen to offer Varun gyan on how to behave with Katrina when they do that film together, Katria’s giggles were as undercooked as the pancakes that she loves eating any time of the day.
That’s one of the big revelations on the show. Ladies and gentleman, Katrina Kaif loves pancakes.
But seriously, what was she thinking? I’ve known her. She was certainly not so plastic in the past.Maybe pancakes are not good for the intellect.
I wanted to see Katrina Kaif with Varun Dhawan because I was sure she would be more comfortable with him than she was with Aamir Khan in her big movie fiasco this week.
But I am sorry to say, she was as plastic with Varun as she was with Aamir. So one thing we can safely say about this beautiful but vacuous actress(?) is that she doesn’t discriminate between co-stars.
Having said that I no longer want to watch the film that Varun will soon be doing with Katrina. If this is the “chemistry” between them then heavens help that film. The two were so artificial on Karan’s couch(and off it) doing the bantering bit I felt sorry for them.
And I felt really sorry for myself for having to sit and watch these two glamorous actors expose how intellectually bankrupt they are. Every country gets the heroes it deserves. Do we deserve this?
