The Mini Koffee awards: the dumb, the dumber, the dumbest

From IQ levels that could put a seven-year-old to shame to a few who actually impressed with their candid confessions, here's a new awards series to reward those stars who graced Koffee with Karan this season.

Karan Johar's show on Star World hosts enough crazy people on that couch for it to have its own mini awards.

Honestly, some of the movie stars who've been on the show have made our collective jaws drop in shock and horror (though sometimes - only sometimes - they've made us smile in delight too).

So here go the Mini Koffee Awards. (And do give us your own nominations too!)

Undoubtedly Sonam Kapoor. For claiming that if you're bad-looking, you're like a great actor? You know what I mean? And for claiming that critics have appreciated her performances, like every time?

Oh and for saying that it was like Robert De Niro who said "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." Like, really? a revelation!

Juhi Chawla. People usually imagine Bollywood actresses to be stuck-up and diplomatic. But Juhi Chawla came across like a breath of fresh air!

She spoke candidly about how she let success get to her head, made some wrong career decisions, fought with Aamir Khan and so on. Not what one expected. But more power to Juhi and her frankness! Burman who?

Deepika Padukone. For looking so blank when asked to sing a song composed by RD Burman.

Seriously? You couldn't even think of one song by the legendary Panchamda. Really?

Sharam karo, bhai, sharam karo Sinha, for saying she hadn't watched Sholay. Ever. Not even once. And for not looking embarrassed about it. Aren't you in the Hindi film industry? class fail

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, for saying that Manmohan Singh / Prithviraj Chauhan is the President of India. Go back to school, right now! mana hai

Kajol. Why, oh why, and what IS with that laughter?

Whether it was laughing when Karan Johar sang "Mera pati mera devta hai", or when Ayan said people alleged he had to do 'all sorts of things' to come on the show, or Kajol herself saying she always thought she looked 'rich', her laughter just went on and on. Please stop!

Thank heavens for some sense Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, for being the sanest couple to have graced the couch.

They're good singers, they knew what they were talking about, and also seemed so normal. Phew!

The awards were given by Veenu Singh, Tavishi Paitandy Rastogi, Parul Khanna, Shreya Sethuraman and Abhilasha Gupta.
