KWK 7: Kiara Advani reveals how she embarrassed herself in front of Juhi Chawla
Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan season 7 episode 8 is out on Disney+ Hotstar. On the latest episode of the Karan Johar-hosted show, actors Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor graced the famous Koffee couch and spilled the beans about their professional and personal lives. Kiara spoke not only about her rumoured boyfriend Sidharth Malhotra, but also made revelations about her most embarrassing experience at a Bollywood party.
During a segment on the show, called Karan’s Bingo, Kiara and Shahid Kapoor were asked if they had ever embarrassed themselves at a party. When Kiara said she had, Karan acted surprised, and said, “You?” Kiara replied, “Yes, I have told you about this story. My most embarrassing story. This was before I became an actress. Before I debuted in the film industry.” Cutting Kiara mid-sentence, Shahid said, “We are not interested in that story.” Kiara then said, “No, but this is a (film) industry party. And this happened with (filmmaker) Sujoy Ghosh. I don’t know if I should say this story. It is very embarrassing.”
Kiara continued, “So, basically, Juhi Chawla, she is a very close family friend. She knew I wanted to get into the movies. She had done the movie I Am (2010), which won the National Award, for which they had a party. She invited me because she wanted to introduce me to the director (Sujoy Ghosh). She knew I was aspiring to be an actor. So, I went, I was quite young. I was having this conversation with the director, and it was a busy crowded party. He was standing here (made a gesture using her hands) and I was standing here and talking, and he lifted his hand. I thought it was the end of the conversation, and we should hug and say bye. But he was calling somebody else. And I had gone for a hug.”
The actor also shared how Juhi, who had invited her to the party reacted to her goof-up. She said, “Juhi aunty just looked at me like ‘what is she doing’? And I said ‘oh God’… That was awkward.” Kiara added, “Luckily, Sujoy Sir does not remember this story.” Shahid reacted to Kiara’s story by saying, “That’s sweet.” Meanwhile, Karan Johar said, “Hugging Sujoy Ghosh is okay.”
