Koffee With Karan 8 Awards: Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh and Saif Ali Khan Shine as Winners

New Delhi – The eighth season of the popular talk show “Koffee With Karan” concluded in a grand finale, where the coveted “Koffee Awards” were announced. Hosted by renowned filmmaker Karan Johar, the show generated significant social media buzz throughout the season. Johar, joined by a jury consisting of comedians Tanmay Bhat, Danish Sait, Sumukhi Suresh, and content creator-actor Kusha Kapila, presented the awards in various categories, celebrating the most memorable moments from the season.

One of the highlights of the season was the opening episode featuring Bollywood power couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, who received the Special Jury Award. Their candid and heartwarming conversation touched upon their secret engagement, proposal story, their dating journey, and Padukone’s personal battle with mental health. As a special treat, Johar also shared the couple’s official wedding video, which had remained private for five years.

Another noteworthy moment came with the Best Performance Male award, which was won by Saif Ali Khan. Khan, known for his social media absence, appeared on the show with his mother, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore. Their episode offered valuable insights into Khan’s career, including his experiences with film rejections and inheritance disputes.

In addition to winning the Special Jury Award, Deepika Padukone was also honored with the Best Performance Female award. Her passionate account of her dating life, views on marriage, and her struggles with depression resonated deeply with both the audience and the jury. Padukone’s witty responses in the Rapid Fire Round earned her the additional accolade of Best Rapid Fire.

Actor Varun Dhawan was recognized with the Best Koffee Burns award for his lighthearted roasting of Karan Johar. Dhawan humorously referred to Johar as “Karan Johar Ghar tode” (a playful nod to a character in one of his father’s films) and playfully dubbed him “KJo Komolika.”

The episode featuring Bollywood veterans Kajol and Rani Mukerji was considered the Most Fun Episode by the jury. Their infectious laughter, Mukerji’s candid call-outs to Johar, and the memorable moments from their iconic film “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” made it a rollercoaster ride for viewers.

Lastly, emerging star Ananya Panday showcased her wit and charm, winning the Best Rapid Fire award. Panday cleverly addressed rumors about her relationship with actor Aditya Roy Kapur, earning her the appreciation of the jury and the coveted hamper prize.

The guest list for this season of “Koffee With Karan” was extensive and featured industry stalwarts such as Zeenat Aman, Neetu Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Rohit Shetty, Sidharth Malhotra, Vicky Kaushal, and many more.

As the season concluded, host Karan Johar expressed his gratitude to the viewers, acknowledging their contribution in making the show a social media sensation. The entire season, filled with its fair share of entertainment and fiery moments, has left fans eagerly awaiting the next installment of “Koffee With Karan.”
