Karan Johar gets cold feet
Karan Johar might have asked a lot of uncomfortable questions to the celebrity guests on his chat show, but when it was his turn to be on the hot seat, he opted out.
Interestingly, after much dilly-dallying, the filmmaker refused to appear on a chat show hosted by Arjun Rampal, apparently because he isn't too comfortable facing public criticism.
Rampal's chat show Luv To Hate You's format brings together a celeb and a celeb hater, who subjects the celebrity to rather bitter criticism.
Says a source, "Normally Karan is open to any kind of invitation from a friend on any public platform. He has walked the ramp and talked on numerous talk shows for friends. Arjun is a very dear friend. But he had to say no to his show because of the nature and format of the show."
Arjun Rampal confirmed Karan opting out of the show. "Karan won't come on my show. I think he's apprehensive of what his hater may spring on him," he said.
Better luck next time!
Arjun was able to rope in Ram Gopal Varma to appear on his chat show. Interestingly, Ramu had refused an offer from KJo for his talk show.
