The first episode of Koffee With Karan Season 7 had premiered on Disney+Hotstar on Thursday. Featuring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh as the first guests on KWK couch, the episode had many epic moments filled with laughter and too-much-info. 


Amongst many revelations by both the stars in the episode, one of Alia’s rapid fire answers caught our attention and it is too cute to be missed. And a video of the moment is going viral on Twitter.

In the rapid fire round of the first episode, Karan Johar, the show host, had asked Alia about the best compliment she has received for her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi. The actress revealed that it was from Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s son Ibrahim Ali Khan. Ibrahim is working as an assistant director in Alia and Ranveer’s upcoming film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. KJo is directing it.

Everyone in the industry is very sweet. But there is one person, Ibrahim Ali Khan, he is the cutest person I have ever met in my life. He sent me the most amazing message.

The viral clip shows Alia reading out a (cute albeit hilarious) personal message sent by Ibrahim on her phone. It goes like:

Had to remove the time to message you personally. I cannot believe this is the same lady, I learn from every time I am on set, you’re just phenomenal. You’re so so good as Gangu and seeing you as Rani and then watching this film, it’s safe to say you mould yourself effortlessly, like water taking shape of its container (sic).

-Alia Bhatt

All of them burst out laughing after this.

Netizens can’t keep calm after watching this clip:

In Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia Bhatt played the titular role of a prostitute living in Kamathipura, Bombay. Her acting in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directorial was well-received by both critics and the audience. The film was loosely based on the life of Ganga Jagjivandas Kathiawadi, whose story was documented in the book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai.

Coming back to Alia and Ibrahim’s bond, last year, a video featuring both of them went viral from the sets of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The clip was shot on the occasion of 20 years of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. In the video, Alia recreated a scene from K3G along with Ibrahim and her co-star Ranveer.
