An Indian talk show hosted by the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director, Koran Johar, Koffee with Karan is a sensation on its own. Best described as a blend of KJo’s creativity, punk and spunk, the series has evolved from being another chat show to the spiciest series over the span of eighteen years. It is accredited as India’s longest-running talk show after Doordarshan’s Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan. From stirring controversies with creators and cricketers to unveiling the latest gossip trends, the Student of the Year director has maintained the show’s appeal. It wouldn’t be unfair to claim that KJo has uplifted Koffee with Karan with each season and it is due to his efforts that the show stands as a trailblazer.
With the recent episodes breaking records, questions regarding a new season are flourishing over the Internet. So, today I’m spilling the beans on the Koffee with Karan Season 9 release date and addressing all those speculations!
Koffee with Karan Season 9 Release Date
While the director, Karan Johar, hasn’t yet divulged his plans regarding the ninth season, the possibilities are not to be denied. Ever since the series dropped on Star World in November 2004, the creators have been diligently working towards making it a show-stopper. Undoubtedly they have succeeded in their mission, propelling the talk show to greater heights with every season. Naturally, they wouldn’t pull back the Indian Television Academy Award-winning show.
Since the eighth iteration is still airing on Disney+ Hotstar, it might take a while before an official confirmation is released. If the series is approved, Koffee with Karan Season 9 is expected to be released in late 2024. However, given that the show is notorious for delaying its latest iterations, this season might be prolonged for a couple of months as well.
What is The Koffee with Karan Series About?
Koffee with Karan began as a passion project by executive producers, Fazila Allana and Kamna Nirula Menezes. They approached KJo to host the Star Parivaar Awards for the Star Plus channel in 2004. However, he declined the offer, stating that “I don’t mind anchoring a show, but I’d rather it was a chat show”. Despite expressing disinterest in hosting the award show, he unintentionally pitched an idea and laid the foundation of Koffee with Karan. Allana and Menezes pursued the head of Star India to commission a chat show–an idea he delightfully embraced.
Johar, who is renowned as “the brain behind the show” jumped on the chance and agreed to host the show. The creators then began conceptualizing the theme of their newly commissioned show. They eventually settled on a simplistic yet smashing theme. According to them, the show revolves around “spilling the beans while having a hot cuppa.” It debuted with the infamous Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ) couple, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. The creators went all in and brought multiple legendary entertainers like Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar.
Koffee with Karan Season 9 Cast List
Ever since its debut season KJo remained a pivotal figure, even if the directors kept changing from Ravina Kohli to Jahnvi Obhan. Similarly, the cast members have kept fluctuating with Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt remaining a constant figure. Aside from the Bollywood actors, multiple Tollywood entertainers like Prabhas and Vijay Deverakonda have also joined Karan for a cup of coffee. Additionally, the Dear Zindagi producer also invited Indian cricketers, Hardik Pandya and K.L Rahul and needless to say, his experience with them was terrific. From introducing rapid-fire rounds to the Koffee Awards, the show has indeed come a long way.
Similar to Koffee with Karan Season 8 cast list, nothing regarding this new iteration has been confirmed yet, especially not the cast ensemble. However, you can expect this list to be wishwash with Bollywood celebrities like Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh.
