Once again, The Internet has saved me! And I encourage you to go on your own quest to discover the newest episode. Oh, and last week’s episode is now available LEGALLY on this website: http://www.hotstar.com/tv/koffee-with-karan/1525
First, Karan calls them out right at the beginning, because they are the only people who have naturally sat that close on the couch. Which is true! They spend the whole episode holding hands, or with his hand on her leg.
Karan plunges right into it, asking them to tell how they met. And Twinkle jumps in, because she will give the non-PC version, and that’s the version Karan wants. So, she had just gotten out of a long relationship, and she wanted a distraction, and there he was 6 foot of chocolate, and she thought, why not? 15 days while they are on location in Calgary, why not? Plus, she had run out of books to read.
And then they started dating, and he proposed, but she wanted to wait for her next film to come out, because she thought she would be a big star, this was her big movie, Mela! [laughter] And Akshay agreed to this, although Twinkle and Karan both point out that Akshay is very smart about the business, so there is a decent chance he knew what would happen with Mela and she would end up marrying him anyway. And sure enough, opening day, the reports came in, and she called him and said “Okay, let’s get married!”
But then he had to get permission from Dimple, so Twinkle is talking to her mother while she is getting acupuncture and Dimple is saying “I don’t know, I don’t think it is a good idea, we’ll talk about it later” but Twinkle wanted to find out now! Even with the acupuncture guy there. So Dimple says “Fine, it’s because I read this article that Akshay is really gay!”
(Akshay gay, means I get to post this video again!)
Anyway, they agreed to live together for a year to be sure, and then her mother would give permission.
They are the BEST COUPLE EVER!!!
That was my favorite part, although I also liked the story about when Karan and Twinkle were at school together, and Twinkle got sick of stealing extra food for him and listening to him cry, so she told him he should just run away! So poor fat little 12 year old Karan got up at 4am and started down the hill, and then fell and just rolled down to the bottom and bumped right into the poor sleeping watchman, who marched him back to school and the whole school had to look at him in an assembly as an example as a bad boy who tried to ran away.
And then super special romantic bit, Akshay has spent the past month learning to sing “Strangers in the Night”, because they used to listen to it all the time when they started dating in Calgary. Awwwwww! In the middle, Twinkle gets up to dance with him cheek to cheek. And then Akshay goes over to pull Karan up to dance with him too.
Rapid Fire Twinkle: She kept getting distracted by just joking with Karan! Which was my favorite part. Also, based on this and the Kajol episodes, I think Karan just likes being friends with women who bully him. Because MAN! Twinkle does not let him get away with anything! Jokes about Section 377, about Fawad Khan, and right at the end she finally makes him crack when she references “That hostage video of yours.”
(She’s right! It is a hostage video!)
Rapid Fire Akshay: Which was mostly Twinkle too. She kept objecting to his answers. Really, they have the best marriage!
So, I highly recommend the episode, if you want to get an inside look both at the Akshay-Twinkle marriage, and the Twinkle-Karan lifelong friendship.
