This week on Koffee With Karan, there was some gandi baat happening on the sofa, as Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha were the guests of the show. They’ve developed a good rapport after the release of their first film together, which was clear during the conversation. They’re two people who generally try to remain as politically correct as possible, but still, as is with any Koffee With Karan episode, there were some fun moments and even some interesting revelations. Read on for the recap on what we learned about these two stars!
They’ve got a great rapport now, but before R… Rajkumar the two weren’t really friends. In fact, quite the opposite: they thought the other was snooty! Shahid was apparently put off by the fact that Sonakshi went up to receive an award at a function Shahid was hosting, but didn’t acknowledge him although she said hello to everyone else on the stage. At the same time, Sonakshi thought he was just standing to the side and not acknowledging her although everyone came up to congratulate her. She explained away the incident saying she was flustered, while Shahid said she was intimidating since she was surrounded by her dad and mom. So a bit of a misunderstanding in the beginning, but clearly they sorted it all out.
It’s not just me, right? There’s definitely some sort of chemistry happening there? Sonakshi called it a “buddy vibe” but I don’t know, I’m sensing something else. We already heard that they were sort of testing the waters back then, but are now apparently very much into each other (keep in mind this episode was shot a while ago as well, even though it’s airing now). Shahid called her his favourite co-star, while she said she has 2 favourites, one being Shahid and the other being Akshay Kumar. They also had a great vibe on the show – laughing, making fun of each other, praising the other. Check out this deleted scene where they talk about their relationship a bit more:
When asked what his status with his ex-girlfriends are currently, Shahid said that he and Kareena Kapoor haven’t really interacted with each other. He claimed they ran into each other once and it was mildly awkward, since they were both trying to be formal and nice. As for Priyanka Chopra, he says he’s hung out with her a lot and it’s been good. Can he hang out with them as friends now? “With Priyanka, for sure. With Kareena… we don’t have that kind of equation.”
He also ended the conversation with a bit of a snub by saying that he thinks Sonakshi can be a lot more than a housewife. That relates back to Kareena’s episode, where she said that, if not an actress, Sonakshi would make a good housewife.
When questioned about why there are never any major rumours about her – just a few, here and there – Sonakshi said that it’s likelier that it’s because she’s ‘boring’. However, she does say that her closest friends aren’t from the industry and keep laughing at her movies, so that keeps her on the ground at all times. “Other than that, I’m working really hard.” And when she’s not working, she’s spending most of her time with family.
While Sonakshi can still be considered a good girl, Shahid seems to have broken out completely. He was a lot more prone to doing some gandi baat, and even openly said some things he would have perhaps shied away from before. For example, he didn’t deny that he was dating Priyanka, something that he did even when they appeared on the show during their relationship. He even admitted that he hooked up in a public place, passed a somewhat snide comment at Kareena, said you can “enjoy your sexual freedom” when in a relationship, and picked up on every innuendo. If you go back and watch his first episode with Kareena, you’ll see the difference!
