So far Shah Rukh Khan has been a part of every season of Koffee With Karan. But this season, it seems unlikely, considering his somewhat strained relations with host Karan Johar and also the current deadlock in SRK’s career. A source in the know informs, “Karan is very keen on have Shah Rukh on his show. But it seems unlikely that he will be able to persuade the Khan to do so this time. Shah Rukh is at the moment on a career-mending mission. You could say it is a transitional phase for the mega-star. At the moment he’d not like to say anything about his future. So what will they talk about on Koffee With Karan? Karan can’t do his usual controversial rapid fire segment on his mentor.”
There is another reason why Shah Rukh may not appear on Koffee With Karan this season. Almost all of Shah Rukh’s contemporaries and adversaries – be it Aamir Khan or Ajay Devgn have appeared on the show. Mostly, even his buddy Salman might appear again this season, probably to close the season, if SRK refuses to oblige, adds the source. In such a scenario, one would have to wait far longer to see Karan and Shah Rukh banter on screen.
