Director Ayan Mukherji is clearly fond of his best friend Ranbir Kapoor's ladylove, Katrina Kaif.

The "Wake Up Sid" director showed his affinity towards Kaif as he answered some witty replies in the upcoming episode of "Koffee with Karan."

The director, who will be seen with his famous cousin Kajol in the show, picked the "Dhoom 3" actress as the sexiest and most stunning actress over her contemporaries Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor.

On being asked who would lead the IQ test among Padukone, Kapoor and Kaif, the young director chose his favourite actress, Kaif, yet again.

When Karan Johar asked Mukherji what the biographies of the leading actresses should be titled, he gave an amusing reply saying that Padukone's should read "The Girl with Broken Heart" while Kaif's would be "The Girl who Tried," reported PTI.

For the unaware, Mukherji's jibe is directed at the actress's common liaison with Ranbir Kapoor. The "Besharam" actor had once famously dated Padukone, but moved on to his present girlfriend Kaif.

From the above replies it is obvious that the young director shares a strong bond with the 29-year-old actress and approves of his dear friend Ranbir Kapoor's relation with the former. No doubt the trio have often been spotted at numerous occasions together.    

The "Koffee with Karan" episode will also have some out of the box answers from Kajol, as the established actress declared Kapoor as her clear favourite even over ex-co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan.
