On the 13th episode of Koffee With Karan season 6, Shahid Kapoor came along with his younger half-sibling, Ishaan Khatter and it was his sixth appearance on the show. The host of the show, Karan Johar revealed that earlier whenever Shahid came on the show, he came with someone he has been linked to. In the first season, Shahid came with Esha Deol, in the second season he came with Kareena Kapoor, in the third season he came with Priyanka Chopra, in the fourth season he came with Sonakshi Sinha and finally on the fifth season he was accompanied by his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor.
When Karan asked Shahid, “Esha Deol you weren’t dating na?”, he replied, “Not at all. Actually, we met for the first time on your show.” When Karan further said, “So, you dated Priyanka, Kareena and then there were rumours about Sonakshi.” Shahid didn’t deny his relationship with them and revealed that he recently bumped into Kareena on many occasions.
Speaking about how there should be a normal vibe between the exes, Shahid added, “I think there should be eventually. If you are happy and if you are settled then there’s no reason to be uncomfortable with other people. If you are uncomfortable with something and holding on to something, I think those are the times that we should probably be awkward because there’s something within you that’s not settled. But if you’re happy with where you are, you always wish everybody happiness. I wish them all the happiness.”
In the Rapid-Fire round, when Karan Johar asked which relationship’s memories he would like to delete, Priyanka or Kareena, Shahid retorted, “See, my relationship with Kareena was longer and with Priyanka, it was shorter. I think the man that I am today is because of all the experiences that I’ve had. So I wouldn’t want to delete any of the memories. It’s taught me a lot."

In the next question when he was asked which out of the two ladies, Priyanka or Kareena, is a more talented actor, Shahid decided to give a diplomatic response. He said, “I think the more talented actor is Kareena. I think the more hardworking and committed actor is Priyanka.”
Shahid Kapoor shared that he wished Priyanka on her wedding to American singer, Nick Jonas and she had wished him too, when he got married. When Karan asked for advice that Shahid would want to give to Nick Jonas, the Udta Punjab actor said, “Never back down, you are with the original Desi Girl.”
Shahid and Priyanka’s relationship has always been a tight-lipped one but as per a throwback DNA report, Priyanka’s house was raided by the income tax department in 2011, when she had called Shahid to the rescue. Priyanka had herself revealed the same back then and shared, “Yes, Shahid was there at my apartment when it (the income tax raids) happened. He lives just three minutes away from my home and it was but natural for me to give him a call when all that was happening. My mother was also supposed to be there but she couldn’t make it. So I gave him a call and he rushed to my apartment just as he was (reportedly in shorts).”
On Neha Dhupia’s show, BFFs with Vogue, when she asked Shahid, “Has anyone ever cheated on you and who?”, his wife, Mira instantly interrupted and asked her to rephrase it to, “How many women have cheated on him?” Answering their question, Shahid revealed, “I am sure about one, I have major doubts about another one.” When Neha jabbed him to give names by asking if he is talking about those two famous actresses whom he dated, Shahid refused to take their names. He retorted, “I cannot name them.”
Speaking about Priyanka Chopra, her wedding and her professional achievements, Shahid once stated in an interview, “Priyanka is doing amazingly well I am very happy for her. She has made all of us proud. She always had the potential to become an international star and she has proved it.” Shahid went on to add, “Many, many congratulations to Priyanka and Nick. Marriage is a beautiful thing, I can say that from my experience and I wish her all the best.” (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra Jonas' Exes, Shahid Kapoor And Harman Baweja Made An Appearance At Her Reception)
