Karan Johar has admitted that he and the producers of his chat show Koffee with Karan contemplated deleting the famed Rapid Fire section. The show has frequently put celebrities and the host in awkward situations due to what is said during the Rapid Fire round.
Karan Johar stated on Monday at a Koffee with Karan event in Mumbai that the guests had become more careful about what they say on the program over time.
“We kept coming back to finding an alternative for Rapid Fire, and the unfortunate thing is that people are a lot more concerned now than they were in the first few seasons.” Nobody wants a public relations nightmare. Everyone is so cautious that you have to make certain that you adapt the terminology of Rapid Fire in order to obtain something,” Karan said.
On questions he no longer asks
“There were times when people responded with abandon, as most underrated and overrated people do, and answers were flowing.” I’m not going to answer them today, so how can I expect them? We’ve all created a delicate climate. We have become far more sensitive as a result of social media. So everyone is concerned about what they are saying and what they are expected to say, fan groups become enraged, and I don’t want any of that,” he continued.
In answer to a query about the editing of certain Koffee with Karan episodes, the director replied that he has never erased anything that may have “repercussions and ramifications.”
“I’ve kept stuff that, in retrospect, I certainly shouldn’t have.” We got rid of the unnecessary chit-chat. But we must never cut out important things. I’ve never asked to have anything I’ve spoken removed because it’s too personal or an opinion that would have repercussions and effects, yet it’s all there. “There’s evidence of that,” he stated.
Every Thursday at midnight, a new episode of Koffee with Karan Season 8 is released on Disney+ Hotstar.
