Saif Ali Khan and Karan Johar are known to be some of the most entertaining hosts in the industry. Known for their wit and charm, everyone was expecting a firecracker of a time on the IIFA stage in New York, but much to everyone’s surprise, things took a different turn, and the hosts have landed themselves in some sort of a never-ending debate.
Besides the whole ‘Nepotism Rocks’ chant, and the Kangana fiasco that transpired right after that, something else recently caught our attention. Apart from what happened on stage, rumours suggest that the hosts, Saif and Karan had a disagreement between themselves as well.
According to a report on Pinkvilla, Saif was unhappy about Karan’s contribution to the hosting gig. A source revealed, “Initially, Saif and Karan got along very well. They had rehearsed their lines, skits and acts. Saif is very particular about their lines together on stage. He wanted their on-stage time to be equally divided with an equal number of jokes, punchlines, etc.” He went on to say, “On stage, Saif suddenly found Karan changing the lines. He took it in his stride for a while, but his resentment at being upstaged couldn’t be concealed.” Oops! Seems like Saif was unhappy about Karan stealing his thunder.
In response to Saif’s thoughts about their act, a source close to Karan said, “It’s not clear how this happened because the hosts always read from the teleprompter. Karan is so comfortable on stage, so he may have said some spontaneous things to improvise, which may have disturbed his co-host. But I doubt he did that to steal Saif’s thunder.”
We hope the duo sort out their differences soon, and manage to put this whole IIFA incident behind them.
