Karan Johar is back with the exciting new season of his popular chat show ‘Koffee with Karan’ and this time it’s better and bigger. As the show’s seventh season is grabbing eyeballs owing to celebs making controversial remarks, the episodes from the previous seasons which were embroiled in huge controversies are doing the rounds on social media. Amongst them was the one where Tusshar Kapoor stated that Preity Zinta’s face reminded him of ‘cosmetic surgery. The Golmaal actor appeared on Koffee with Karan in 2011 with his sister and producer Ekta Kapoor.
Back then during a rapid-fire round, Tusshar was asked to reveal the first name that comes to his mind to a word the host tells him. When Karan Johar said, cosmetic surgery, the actor took Preity Zinta’s name. However, minutes later he clasped his hands on his mouth and said, “Ouch. I’m sorry, that was just to win the hamper.” According to reports, the Soldier actress got very angry and upset with Tusshar and called him expressing her dismay. Talking about the same, Tusshar had told PTI, “Preity called me. She was upset and I cleared my stand. Everyone knows that Karan’s rapid-fire round is just for laughs. You don’t even have the time to think when Karan puts you in the dock. Recently, I saw Preity’s picture in a magazine and she was looking stunning having lost a lot of weight. So, when Karan asked, Preity’s name just came out at the spur of the moment. There’s nothing more to it.”
The actor added that his intentions were not to hurt Preity and that he felt bad that his remark was taken in a bad light. “I’m glad that we spoke and sorted it out rather than letting it snowball into something worse. I don’t even know what botox actually is, and why will I say something like this about someone who I truly respect,” The Dirty Picture actor added.
Interestingly, Preity and Tusshar share a great bond of friendship and have always been spotted greeting each other warmly on award nights.
Meanwhile, ‘Koffee with Karan 7’ three successful episodes are out and the fourth one will be graced by Liger actors Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday.
