The two guests tonight, Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor came all set, ready with politically correct answers denying all rumours that linked them with Alia Bhatt. The two boys of Bollywood were introduced as huge fans of Salman Khan, by host Karan Johar. Almost for the first few minutes, one almost forgot this is the show where most gossips come to life. But it wasn’t the case with Varun and Arjun. At least not before the first commercial break. It was more about upholding moral standards for themselves and the people they are dating.
While talking about dating Varun Dhawan mentioned that he is dating a school friend named Natasha but he did not indulge on giving away more details about his life.
Later it was a bit about the bromantic relationship they share with each other. When Karan Johar asked them about the status of their friendship, Arjun Kapoor confirmed that Varun is his brother from another mother.
Right after the break, Karan Johar shared an embarrassing video of both Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor. Let’s just say had it ever been shown before they entered Bollywood to the nation, the two actors would have had a very different career, they would never be stars like they are now!

That was apparently the tape Varun showed Karan during the auditions of Student Of The Year. It still remains surprising why Karan would ever select Varun Dhawan as one of the lead actors after watching that video. Arjun Kapoor was embarrassed enough that it was shown on national television as he never ever wanted people to see it.
Later Varun confessed that he takes off his clothes as a natural instict and hence next time when you see him doing that just know he does not do it out of sexual intentions. He called himself a nudist.
When Karan started giving them tasks, began the humour on the show. He first ordered them to act like gay lovers meeting in a bar. Under the orders of the director the two got more physical and finally broke into laughter. Arjun remarked if anyone could play gay the best, it would be Karan himself. Later they were made to play brothers and change language under the instruction of Karan again.
Much like the audience, Arjun was in pieces when Varun changed his language. All over it was truly a hysterical performance, the prize to which was a book which was previously in possession with David Dhawan. Yet Varun gave Arjun a khali dabba while he took the real gift inside.
The rapid fire round lacked the spark. Both the actors gave safe answers while ranking their fellow colleagues. Much like Arjun said, Varun’s need for attention was seen in this episode. Even when Karan was asking his rapid fire questions to Arjun, a fidgety and interfering Varun managed to get every shot of the camera.
The answers of the rapid fire round did not reveal any spicy secrets of Bollywood. Except Arjun hesitated when Karan asked him who is hotter between Sonakshi and Parineeti, to which after a lot of teasing, he chose Parineeti.
Much like previous shows Varun Dhawan lost in this episode of Karan Johar’s show again. Varun’s competitive nature was exemplified on his face. However, he won in the GK round where KJo mostly asked questions from Bollywood arena.
The show rounded up with Varun confessing that he was a little diplomatic because some things get mistreated in the media but he is happy in his personal life.
Arjun made no such disclaimer but only requested audience not to judge them and not fall for the misinterpretation made by the media.
Next week will see the two heartthrobs Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh coming over together, one of the rarest times when they’ll sit on the same couch.
