When Bhumi Pednekar was fired

She said: “As this script (of Dum Laga Ke Haisha) came along, I didn’t know they were auditioning me. So, Shanoo being Shanoo, she’s said, oh my God! Let’s do this mock audition. Shanoo gave me four scenes to do and I did all of them back to back together.”

When filmmaker and host Karan Johar wanted to know more about this experience was, she said: “Shanoo is a very dramatic person. So Shanoo and I had a fight and she was like, you are fired!’. I was like, What?’, she was like yeah, you’re fired’. I said, Over such a silly thing?’ and then she said, From today, I don’t want to see your face because you’re being considered for Dum Laga Ke Haisha.”

Rajkummar threatens Karan with IT department

Karan, known for his love for designer clothes, could be seen holding forth on his look for the day. He tells Rajkummar that his trousers cost as much as his entire schooling and his jacket is worth his EMI. To this, Rajkummar showed him his hand and replied, “And this is the cost of the Income Tax department.”

Earlier, Rajkummar Rao took to Twitter to express his thoughts on shooting for the Koffee With Karan episode. He tweeted, “I love coffee but this Koffee was special. Had a great time with the most wonderful Karan Johar and the brilliant Bhumi Pednekar on Koffee With Karan today.”
