I will never invite these two Stars to my show – Karan Johar
During a recent interview with The Hindu, Karan Johar was asked if there is any celebrity he could not get on the show despite trying his maximum best.
The filmmaker said he will never invite Rekha and “Well, I did bring it up once with Rekha ma’am, even as recently as a couple of seasons ago. I was very keen to have her appear on the show, but she wasn’t convinced. But after that, I felt she has such an exotic, beautiful mystery about her… it has to be protected always. So I didn’t push it after that.”
During the same interview, Karan also spoke about his friend and mentor Aditya Chopra and how getting him on the show would be a challenge. “Will I ever have Adi on KWK… I mean, I think I’m not brave enough to even ask him, right,” Karan said.
