Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra’s rivalry, chemistry and memorable moments on Koffee with Karan 4


The much awaited episode of competing heroines went on air and here are few things that we didn’t miss

Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra tried hard to look friendly, but alas they failed miserably. While one is a young diva in the making, the other can give some of her seniors a run for their money as far as acting is concerned. And even as Karan Johar managed to get a casting coup for his latest episode by getting two warring heroines on the couch, this one failed to be a match to Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s crackling episode in the last season. Here are few highlights from Alia-Parineeti’s tête-à-tête and things you might have missed in between, wink!

Like Karan Johar said, Alia Bhatt was the ‘veteran’ on this couch in attitude and words and she didn’t mind flexing some muscles before debutant Parineeti. If you saw her claim that Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan love her more than the Ishaqzaade actor, she went on to even declare Parineeti ‘LOUD’ on the show. That’s not it AB who lost out the famous Koffee hamper to the Hasee Toh Phasee actor felt that she missed it as she had already won it once this season. She said, “May be I won it once so you might give it to her”. Not to forget when the Highway babe missed the quiz prize, she called it a “tiffin box”. Now Alia isn’t a great sport and totally lacks sportsmanship spirit,  that we got to know thanks to KJo’s show.

But we also figured that the 2 States actor scores really low when it comes to GK (general knowledge). With elections around the corner and Narendra Modi being the flavour of this season everybody has heard about the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), but not Alia. Considering that Alia had admitted that she needs to be more politically aware post the Saifai Mahotsav controversy, the Bhatt gal still doesn’t know who is the President of Congress. And yes this Hindi film heroine has no idea what Independence Day means in the national language.

Alia’s love for Ranbir Kapoor might make her boyfriend and the Kapoor lad’s lady love Katrina Kaif extremely uncomfortable. So we had heard about how fond RK Jr was about Imtiaz Ali’s heroine. He even went to promote a film he did not feature in. But looks like Alia loves, literally loves Ranboo. Should Katrina be jealous? After declaring her love for Ranbir and plans of marrying the Rockstar, she also added, “I have gone on record and said it as you said.. and I am very open about it except to Ranbir.” We wonder what the Kapoor lad has to say to this. We’re sure ‘marriage’ is one word our Ranboo dreads, hai na?

Talking of love, Parineeti seems head over heels for the very married Saif Ali Khan. So we will not be surprised that is ever the duo come together for a movie, Ms Kapoor Khan will be very much on the sets keeping an eye on Parineeti and the Nawab. The Shuddh Desi Romance heroine confessed that if Saif hit on her she would not just be okay, but very very happy. Pari also surprised everyone when she declared her love and mutual admiration fro Kamaal R Khan aka the very notorious KRK. When quizzed about her love for the wannabe Khan, she said, “KRK is the sexiest man. I’m going to give back all the love that he has given me.”

Parineeti too took jabs at Alia, when Karan called Alia a veteran before starting the rapid fire round, she remarked imitating Bhatt’s tone, “Listen I’ve done all this, Ive won 20!”. And yes, when KJo quizzed her about people who commented on her fashion sense, Pari said with an intended seriousness, “speak to Alia”.

Clearly this episode had a lot of drama and catty comments. While it wasn’t the most entertaining one, it fared better as compared to some promotional episodes this season. Here take a look at the rapid fire round and Karan’s famous quiz on Koffee with Karan 4!
