Just a few hours away from its grand premiere, the much-awaited season 8 of Koffee with Karan is all set to start on October 26, 2023, with Bollywood couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
While fans are waiting to know about the names of guests this season, earlier, there were rumours doing the rounds stating that Shah Rukh Khan would also be a part of Koffee With Karan 8. However, Karan Johar revealed that this season, King Khan will be skipping it.
Johar said, “With all due respect, he is there, but I don’t think he wants to be in the forefront and speak. I think he deserves his silence. As fans and filmmakers, we should give him that."
Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in the fifth season of Koffee With Karan alongside his Dear Zindagi co-star Alia Bhatt.
Meanwhile, in the latest episode of Be A Man Yaar with Nikhil Taneja, Karan said that Shah Rukh was the first person to understand his ‘feminine side.' He added that the actor was born and brought up in a very progressive environment, as he had come from theater and had worked with all kinds of people; however, his parents were not able to understand things.
Johar added, “When I grew older, people got a little quieter about it, but I could tell that there was a chitter-chatter around, maybe the way I walked, spoke, or things. I remember Shah Rukh Khan was the first man that did not make me feel any lesser.”
