Karan's emotional post
"Hello, Koffee With Karan has been a part of my life, and yours, for 6 seasons now. I'd like to think we've made an impact and even found our place in pop culture history. And so, it is with a heavy heart that that I announce that Koffee with Karan will not be returning (sic)," Karan Johar wrote on social media.
However, it turned out to be another new twist by the makers. As the show would not air on TV but would exclusively be streamed on Disney+ Hotstar. Karan Johar again took to social media and revealed that the show would be back for its 7th season with more celebs, conversations and coffee.
Johar wrote, "Koffee With Karan will not be returning... on TV! Because every great story needs a good twist. I'm delighted to announce Season 7 of Koffee With Karan will stream exclusively on Disney+Hotstar. The biggest movie stars from across India will return to the couch to spill the beans while drinking some koffee. There will be games, there will be rumours put to rest - and there will be conversations that go deep, about love, loss and everything we've all been through over the last few years. Koffee With Karan, 'streaming soon', only on Disney+Hotstar. Toodles!"
What the rumour mills said
Just a few days back, there were strong rumours of the show's shooting commencing from May. "Karan is currently shooting for Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and it's in May when he will wrap up a major chunk of the film. One calling it a schedule wrap, Karan will commence his work on his chat show, Koffee with Karan. The planning and pre-production has already begun and the team is now all ready to start shooting from mid-May," a leading news website had said.
Alia Bhatt – Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif – Vicky Kaushal, Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Rajamouli were some of the names that were floating around. This news might have come as a heart breaker to all the KWK fans out there. Now, whether the show would return later or has been permanently cancelled remains to be seen.
