The rumour making the rounds in the celebrity circles is that Grammy Award winner Justin Bieber may be in conversation with filmmaker Karan Johar for his top-grossing television show ‘Koffee With Karan’ during his visit to India.
Bieber, who will be flying into Mumbai to perform as a part of the Asia leg of his world tour, will perform on May 10 at D.Y. Patil Stadium.
If everything goes as planned, Karan, who has interviewed Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, will host Bieber on his show.
Koffee with Karan has completed five seasons. He will be celebrating season six by unveiling it with Bieber. “This will be the first time an international celebrity of Bieber’s calibre will be featuring in an Indian chat show format,” said a source.
‘Koffee with Karan’ has completed 105 episodes and 5 seasons over 12 years. It’s, however, not confirmed as to how the makers plan to telecast this episode.
Sources privy to the discussion state, “This will be the first time an international celebrity of Bieber’s calibre will be featuring in an Indian chat show format. Karan Johar is known as the Ellen of India and has conducted interactive chat show dialogues with international celebrities of likes of Richard Gere, Maria Sharapova, Hugh Jackman and Christian Loubuton apart from working closely with Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, George Clooney at world forum panels.”
“He will definitely do full justice to this one-on-one exchange if Bieber actually does decide to reserve a time slot for it in his busy schedule. In fact, a legend like Chris Martin who was in India recently for Global Citizen loved ‘Channaa Mereya’ from ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and he sung the song on stage and dedicated it to KJo,” sources added.
Apart from Mumbai, Bieber will also visit New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.
