A meeting between producers of Koffe with Karan and the host of the show Karan Johar took a turn for the worst after Karan reportedly fainted and had to be taken to the hospital. Sources say that Karan’s blood pressure plummeted after one of the producer suggest having a bollywood actor without Khan or Kapoor as last name and who made it big purely because of his/her talent.
“I saw him go pale almost zombie like at the mention of having a genuinely talented actor on the show. But I don’t think anyone would have imagined that he would react like this,” said one producer of the show.
Apparently, it is against the protocol to discuss inviting a guest who is talented and not from the A-list bollywood circle and it was a trainee assistant who was not aware of this and unknowingly shared his views in the meeting.
Insiders say that Karan has the final say when it comes to who gets invited and it doesn’t not have to do anything with the actor being talented.
“Most of those who are invited are the same old faces. Arjun Kapoor has become a screensaver for the show. Jab koi nahi hota toh usko pakad ke laate hai. Aur waise bhi woh khaali hi toh baitha hai,” said an insider who didn’t wish to be named.
For now the trainee who did the unpardonable act has been asked to leave the show. Karan meanwhile has been asked by doctors to take a few weeks off from his show commitments to help himself recover.
