Ranbir Kapoor Refuses To Appear On 'Koffee With Karan' With Wife, Alia Bhatt, Here's The Reason

Brahmastra co-stars, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, had taken the internet by storm by dropping beautiful pictures of their hush-hush white wedding on April 14, 2022. After two months of marriage, the couple gave another pleasant surprise to their loved ones by announcing their pregnancy on June 27, 2022. Moreover, with the announcement of the controversial chat show, Koffee With Karan, fans were excited to see the newlyweds, Ranbir and Alia, on the show. However, in the promo videos, we saw Alia gracing the show with Ranveer Singh and not her hubby, Ranbir Kapoor. 

Now, Karan Johar revealed why Ranbir refused to sit on Koffee With Karan’s couch with his wifey, Alia. For the unversed, Alia Bhatt had announced the good news in the most adorable way. On June 27, 2022, she had shared two pictures on her IG handle. In the first picture, Ranbir and Alia were seen gazing at her sonography report on the screen, while the second picture showed us a lion and a lioness pampering their cub. Alongside, she had penned:

“Our baby.......... Coming soon.”

In a recent conversation with NDTV, Karan Johar talked about Ranbir Kapoor’s absence in the seventh season of his show. Before this, Ranveer was seen in season 4 with Imran Khan and in season 5 with Ranveer Singh. In the interview, Karan revealed that Ranbir is scared of saying something wrong on the show and spiking controversy, so he will not come. The director further shared that Ranbir asked him to pay the same amount he gets if he wanted the actor on the Koffee With Karan’s couch. Karan stated:

“He's a really close friend of mine. He said 'If I say something, kuchh gadbad ho jaega (something will go wrong) so I'm not coming'. He teases me, he says 'you pay me what you're getting, then I'll come'.”


In the same conversation, Karan mentioned that he refused to pay him for the show because he already pays him for the incredible movies he does. He added that just because they share a warm bond doesn't mean he would force Ranbir to appear on his chat show. In his words:

“I said 'why should I pay you? I'm not paying you'. I’m paying you enough for the movies you’re doing.’ And I respect that. Just because they are close friends, they shouldn't come. They should come if they want to come."

In one of the segments, Karan asked Alia to reveal that one marriage myth which was busted as soon as she had tied the knot with Ranbir Kapoor. Answering this, Alia promptly responded with a serious face and said, "There's no such thing as suhaag raat. You are tired." And this statement left Ranveer in splits. Check out the video:
