About which, the 50-year-old director has finally opened up on the very first episode of the season.

"A lot I went through and it was not an easy time, and at that point of time, it was like the snake emojis used to come out every time Koffee with Karan was mentioned. And at one point of time, I also thought that I was never going to come back with the show because there was a lot of attack. I don't know, but there is a snake emoji that comes with KJo, either they call me 'GayJo' or the snake comes out and I don't know why. Which part of me feels or seems like a snake I don't know and want to tell everyone that I am far from one, in fact, I am scared of them" Karan added to his statement.

In response to his statement, the 'Gully Boy' actor lashed out at all the trollers and said, " All you trolls, leave my Karan alone. He is just a 'Gudda' ".

The fun episode ended on a happy note with the 'Padmaavat' actor winning the gift hamper for the rapid-fire round with 71% votes of the live audience and Alia beating him in the buzzer game.
