“It was 12 episodes. We were restricted by not calling more than 26 people. We called Ranbir, he teases me that he won’t come on KWK ever, I’ll try and convince him for the next season. I’m hoping we can do something solid with Shah Rukh Khan for the next season, he’s been such a big part of it and every time he has appeared, he has been magical,” he told Bollywood Hungama.
He was also asked why he doesn’t invite the Khans, Karan revealed that he doesn’t have the guts to answer the phone and invite them for this.
“I am doomed by the reputation of my show. The 3 Khans are not coming on this season, I don’t have the power to pull them. I can get them for a party but not on my show. I can’t manage two also out of the three Khans,” he added in an interview.
