So we got to see a rather interesting side of Aamir Khan on Koffee With Karan 5 tonight. I mean, usually this man is known for being intellectually/politically/socially correct but tonight he decided to be his candid self by literally speaking his heart out on whatsoever questions being shot at him. Probably, could be coz of his partners in crime aka his Dangal daughters Sanya and Fatima who joined him on the Koffee couch tonight. Here, we give you a quick lowdown on all that happened on this Dangal special episode of Koffee With Karan 5…Also read: Aamir Khan: It’s very unfortunate and sad that people think I ghost direct my films
#Aamir calls up random actors at 5: 30 am in the morning!
Yea, so if you wanna be friends with Aamir, be prepared to get early morning calls or say late night alarms ahead of his film’s release coz this man just doesn’t get sleep. He admits he gets nervous before his Film but more than that, it’s his anxiety to hear what the audience has to say that bothers him the most. He said, “Last three weeks ahead of my film I get really nervous, can’t sleep at night and tend to fall asleep at 5:30. Many a times I have called even you(pointing towards Karan), Ranbir, Ayan, for company. Jaggu(Jackie Shroff) stays in my own building and he’s the best company.” So you see, this is how Aamir kills time!
On being a ‘Cry Baby’
Now almost after every film screening, we have spotted Aamir getting teary eyed. That too with that signature towel in his hand. But despite admitting he’s very emotional, Aamir clarifies, “That doesn’t mean i liked the film han(laughs). I dunno yaar but I have decided maybe I should reduce attending film screenings coz i can’t lie and there’s media waiting outside to always get your reaction.”
When Youtube made Aamir cry again
Little did we expect Aamir would have cried even after watching the Dangal trailer on Youtube. Yes, this happened! Can you believe it? Aamir recalled how the day Dangal trailer hit the web, he couldn’t control his tears on watching the trailer finally play on YT. Oh, Karan certainly must have had a blast witnessing these moments live. I mean, duh! So emotional that you cry watching your own trailer on Youtube?
Advice to Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar
While he’s time and again asserted he’s smaller in stature to Salman, Shah Rukh and Akshay. This time he tried being way too modest. As soon as Karan asked him what advice he wants to give to Shah Rukh and he was quick enough to reply, “He doesn’t need my advice coz he’s doing fine without my advice and we all love him.” Then came Salman and he was like “actually I should take advice him from on the way he thinks, teda sochta hai but it always works.” And finally when it came to Akshay Kumar, Aamir concluded saying, “I’ll take financial advice from him coz he’s good with numbers.”
Only if he was single…
Karan asked Aamir as to who would he pick as his date if given a choice between Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut. But Aamir decided to go with all saying, “All are so beautiful, I will date all of them had I been single.”
Ranveer the stripper and Aamir the sex therapist
This came like one really big revelation to us. So Karan played this exciting segment on what would these actors be had they been in their secret lives. And Aamir without even thinking twice before saying something suggested Ranveer Singh would be the ‘stripper’ and he the sex therapist. But naturally, Karan and Dangal girls Sanya and Fatima were taken aback by his this answer. But Aamir stuck by his statement assuring that he’ll really make a very good sex therapist. Ahem! Okay then!
Father to Ranveer or Ranbir
Then came a quick round where Aamir had to answer just by saying yes or no and there he was – making some rather daring choices. While he said a straight no for politics and Hollywood. He willingly nodded a yes when Karan asked him if he would accept a film with Shah Rukh, agree to play homosexual onscreen or play father to Ranveer or Ranbir. Not bad, right? We would love to see him take up either of the last three if not all. How about you?
Ignores the married actresses
It was quite surprising when Aamir just refused to tag any of the married Bollywood actresses as ‘hot’. Ya! So Karan asked him to reply with hot or not to the given actresses but while he was quick enough to call Deepika, Sonam and Kangana hot, he was equally hesitant to say anything about married actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan among others. He simply passed the options by saying, “irrelevant”, can you believe it? He even clarified later saying, “accha nahi lagta yaar, shaadi shuda auraton ko aise bolna”.
The BIG goof up
This was one of the major highlights of tonight’s episode. Karan tricked Aamir by asking him to name the third generation by giving him the first two generations of the respective Bollywood families. But little did anyone expect Aamir would get so confused with the Akhtars that he would name Shabana Azmi as Javed Akhtar’s daughter! LOL! You have no idea how embarrassed he was after making this blunder on the show. It’s okay Aamir, shit happens!
No Tattad Tattad
In the end it was all about knowing the hook steps of famous Bollywood numbers but Aamir barely knows anything beyond his own films. While his Dangal daughters Fatima and Sanya were updated with almost all the steps. Aamir was amused when he heard Karan say “Tattad Tattad” He was like, yeh kaunsa gaana hai?
Well, guess that was more than what anyone of us expected out of Aamir on Koffee With Karan 5, amirite? Drop your thoughts in the comments below and keep watching this space for more updates.
