Hollywood’s Richard Gere became the first international celebrity to grace Karan Johar’s famous show ‘Koffee With Karan’ in 2007. In a recent rapid-fire round, the filmmaker revealed his episode was the “most boring” out of all the ‘KWK’ episodes, right from the first season in 2004.

In a recent event, actor Ananya Panday asked KJo during their chat, “What was the most boring ‘Koffee With Karan’ episode and you can’t say mine because you are only taking shots at me.” In response, Karan Johar said, "Oh dear! It was... so it was Richard Gere. I swear, at one point I thought I was going to pass out... it got very intense. It was the first Hollywood celebrity we had, and I hope I never meet him and he never sees this, but it was deathly boring.”

When asked whom Karan would cast in Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi’s roles if he were to remake his latest film 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ 35 years from now, Karan replied, “Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.”

Over the last almost two decades, ‘Koffee With Karan’ has seen the filmmaker interview top Indian celebrities and get all kinds of honest and hilarious answers from his guests. During Gere’s interview, the two discussed his experiences in India, AIDS awareness, as the humanitarian work done by various Hollywood and Bollywood celebs.

‘Koffee With Karan’ season seven premiered on Disney+ Hotstar last year and had Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, and Sara Ali Khan, among many other celebrities as guests.
