MUMBAI: Koffee with Karan Season 6 started with the blockbuster episode of Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt. Saif Ali Khan–Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh–Akshay Kumar have also been on the couch this time around. There were rumors doing the rounds that Kartik Aryan had refused to be on the show with Vicky Kaushal. It all started with reports that a young actor whose recent film had entered the 100-crore club had refused to appear on Karan’s chat show.
As soon as Kartik’s name surfaced, people started saying that this was the second time he had refused to be part of Karan’s venture. Earlier, Kartik had refused to be the second lead in a KJo production titled Good News, which had Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar as the first leads.
However, according to a leading portal, it was Rajkummar Rao who didn’t want to shoot for the episode with Vicky, and that’s when Ayushmann stepped in. Rajkummar was then offered to shoot an episode with Bhumi Pednekar.
