Sony Entertainment Television’s Indian Idol Season 12 will be celebrating the ‘Karan Johar Special’ episode this week. Marking the semi-finale episode, in the presence of Karan Johar, the Top 6 contestants will be seen singing songs from the iconic films that Karan has been associated with. After Nihal Tauro’s performance on the songs from the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai titled, ‘Ladki Badi Anjani Hai’ and ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, Karan Johar will be seen sharing some trivia from the sets of the film about how Kajol asked him to shout at her.
Talking about the moment Karan Johar shares, “It was the first schedule of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and the first day of our shoot as well. I was only 24 years old back then. And, Kajol was a very old friend of mine who then came to my room and said, “See Karan, I feel you are a soft human. You are directing such a big picture, there are so many people on the set, so will you be able to do it, in terms of your temperament? Will you be able to give directions? Handling such big people on the sets, instruct the crowds, so what can we do? I asked her, ‘what are you suggesting?”
He continues to say, “Then Kajol said, ‘See, my reputation is such that people are really scared of me. So, the first day, you come towards me and shout at me. I will do something that will lead you to say ‘How dare you, you’ve not worked hard. Tumne rehearsal kyu nahi kiya?’ She said if you’ve yelled at me, everyone will start respecting you and no one will harass you after that”
Host Aditya Narayan along with the judges Anu Malik, Sonu Kakkar and Himesh Reshammiya will be seen indulging in a fun and engaging banter with the special guest Karan Johar in this semi-finale weekend episode.
Indian Idol 12 will celebrate the ‘Greatest Finale Ever’ on 15th August, one of the longest finales ever and will go on for 12 hours.
