The ever-popular talk show, “Koffee With Karan,” returned with its eighth season, promising intriguing conversations and engaging celebrity guests. As fans eagerly speculate about the stars who will grace the iconic coffee couch, one topic has been buzzing will cricketers make an appearance?
During an Instagram Live session, Karan Johar, the host and creator of the show, dropped hints about the upcoming guests, teasing that a pair of siblings would be making an appearance. However, it was a fan’s comment about wanting to see cricketers on the show that caught Karan’s attention. He responded by expressing his desire to have cricketers as guests, acknowledging their status as national icons and celebrated personalities.
Karan Johar stated, “Will they come? I don’t know. I’m not sure. I would love to have them. They are national icons, and celebrated illustrious personalities. But I think with what happened last time, I’m not sure they will even take my call. I’m scared to even call, and I’m such a big fan and have so much respect in my heart. I don’t want to be rejected.”

Karan’s apprehension about inviting cricketers stems from the tumultuous reception of the cricket duo KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya during the sixth season of “Koffee With Karan.” Their appearance on the show stirred controversy due to certain remarks made during the episode, which were criticized for being crass and misogynistic. The controversy resulted in the episode’s removal from the digital streaming platform.
The contentious episode not only sparked public outrage but also served as a lesson in the importance of handling sensitive topics and conversations responsibly, especially in the realm of public figures and celebrities. While “Koffee With Karan” has a reputation for its candid and often provocative discussions, it also serves as a platform for stars to showcase their personalities beyond their public personas.
The question of whether cricketers will return to the “Koffee With Karan” stage remains unanswered, but it is clear that the past controversy continues to cast a shadow over the possibility. As the show’s eighth season unfolds, fans will eagerly await the star-studded guests and the fascinating conversations that are sure to emerge from the coffee-fueled chats.
In an entertainment landscape filled with glitz, glamour, and headline-grabbing moments, “Koffee With Karan” remains a unique and captivating offering that provides an intimate glimpse into the lives and personalities of some of India’s most beloved celebrities. Whether cricketers return to the show or not, one thing is certain the coffee cups are brimming with the promise of intriguing conversations and unforgettable moments.
