“I am not comfortable discussing my personal life on the national television”, were the words of John Abraham, when media recently asked him the reason of not appearing on Karan Johar’s Koffee with Karan show.
Well, a few months back when Karan kick started his chat show, there were speculations as to who will appear on the show. However, John Abraham was one of the expected guests to grace Karan’s couch as their bonding goes back to 2008 when KJo gave John a big break with Dostana (featuring Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan), which remains one of the biggest hits of this career.
Nevertheless, John politely denied Karan’s invitation and said that he would not come to the show. At that time, it was reported that his denial is primarily due to his fallout with Krushna Abhishek on the sets of Comedy Nights Bachao Taaza. It was also reported that John is in no mood to appear on the Television sets.
But, that was not the only reason he refused Karan’s show. The real reason for John turning Karan’s invitation is that he doesn’t want to discuss his private life in public. Since, it’s known to all that Karan Johar talks about a star’s personal life- right from breakups to linkups and even minute dirty details, sometimes.
John avoids paparazzi, social gatherings and talking about his personal life in the media. After having a public breakup with her long-term girlfriend Bipasha Basu in 2011, John has never spoken about his personal issues thereafter. In fact, he didn’t disclose his marriage with Priya Runchal in 2014.
So, appearing on Karan’s show means spilling out all the details of his personal life, the actor said, Karan, a ‘NO’.
However, Out of 5 seasons, the actor had appeared in Season 3. Even then, John had come alone to the show.
