Deepika and Sonam

It was the glorious year of 2010. I may be using the word ‘glorious’ loosely, but in my defense it was the year of Shahid Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra‘s on and off romance, Ranbir Kapoor‘s alleged cheating on Deepika Padukone with Katrina Kaif (because Salman Khan doesn’t scare him apparently!) and Deepika’s subsequent affair with Sid Mallya. It was also the year of Koffee With Karan Season 3 and you know what that meant, right? It meant a critical analysis of all of the above.

So on re-watching one of my all time favourite Koffee episodes – the one with Deepika Padukone and Sonam  Kapoor – I thought I’d make some notes. Notes about the most ah-mazing things the duo said on the show (because remember how fun Rakhi Sawant‘s episode was?). In retrospect, it probably is the only time we saw Deepika being this candid.

Here are my fave moments:

1. When only Sonam really understood Deepika’s pain…

Sonam: Ranbir is a great friend. But I don’t know if he’s a great boyfriend. Honestly speaking. He’s a really nice guy, he’s got family values, he’s really respectful. I’ve known Ranbir all my life but as a boyfriend, I don’t know… she did a great job at hanging on to him for so long

Deepika: *takes a bow* thank you!

2. When Deepika resonated Sonam’s thoughts…

Deepika: He’s a wonderful friend to have. I think he needs to work on his boyfriend skills a bit.

3. When Sonam made the most sense she’s ever made…

Sonam: We’re so young. I don’t think relationships are meant to be long term.

4. When Deepika said that she never really said Ranbir didn’t cheat on her…

Deepika: The clarification was not me.

5. When Sonam dissed people who’re open about their relationship (even though Deepika was RIGHT THERE!)…

Sonam: My mum always said never talk about how much you’re earning or who you’re dating, it’s tacky.

6. When Deepika spoke about her RK tattoo for the first time…

Deepika: It’s something that I thought was correct at the time. And I’ve never regretted it. And I’ve never thought about removing it. I know the media is constantly saying ‘she’s taken it off!’ … and all kinds of things. It’s very much there and I have no plans of taking it off.

And Sonam topped it off in style…

Sonam: Scars of battle!

*Slow clap*

7. When Sonam and Karan had this conversation…

Sonam: What were we talking about?

Karan: Ranbir Kapoor!

Sonam: Oh. I forgot.

Karan: Is he that easy to forget?

Sonam: Most men are!

Touche, Sonam!

8. When Deepika tried to be nice about Katrina Kaif…

Deepika: I don’t know Katrina too well to like or dislike her.


Karan: An advice you’d like to give Katrina?

Deepika: Can I ask her a question instead?

Karan: Sure!

Deepika: Can I see your passport?

Even though most people think the question was to confirm Kat’s age, it was apparently a dig at her because rumours were rife that Katrina had traveled to the US to meet Ranbir during his Anjaana Anjaani shoot and Deepika wanted to scan her passport for immigration stamps. Ouch!

9. When the girls did not hold back their thoughts about actresses who went under the knife…

Deepika: If we have a separate graveyard for actresses…

Sonam: We’d know who’s done what because all the plastic stuff will be left behind.

“Plop Plop!” remember?

10. When Sonam said this about Shobha De…

Sonam: Who the hell is she? She writes bad books!

11. When Deepika showed us just how much she liked Sid Mallya…

Karan: What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with Sid Mallya?

Deepika: Never want to get out of the elevator!

Oooooh <3

12. When Deepika gave Ranbir some advice and hell froze over…

Deepika: Endorse a condom brand.

Interestingly though, Ranveer Singh, Deepika’s current boyfriend, endorses a condom brand. Amazing how things work out, no? #Serendipity

See! There’s a reason this episode is legendary!
