November 8, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): The renowned filmmaker Karan Johar is back with the next season of ‘Koffee with Karan’ which was aired on Star World on November 7. The director is very excited about the new season and promises a lot of surprises for his audience.  The first guests on Karan Johar’s controversial talk show was the first couple of Bollywood, (no prizes for guessing!) Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.  The filmmaker expressed his excitement over making a comeback in the world of television with his much-talked-about talk show.

When Karan made his debut on television back in 2004, a lot of his friends differed in their opinions. While some encouraged him to go ahead with the idea, a few others urged Karan to stay away from the small screen altogether. However, Karan went ahead with ‘Koffee with Karan’ and the rest as we say is history. Karan feels that filmmakers should spend a good amount of time in front of the camera because this gives them a chance to expand their horizons.

Right now, the Indian TV industry is filled with huge names from B-town; perhaps the biggest name of all happens to be that of Amitabh Bachchan’s. Karan Johar feels that Big-B has changed the way Bollywood feels about television with his highly popular show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. Presently, the small screen is host to some of the biggest actors in Bollywood and the trendsetter is none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself.

Meanwhile, Karan Johar has carved out a niche of his own by hosting a completely fresh English talk show that gets naughty with all the A-listers of the film industry.
