Popular filmmaker, Vivek Agnihotri is currently leading all the headlines. From taking a dig at Ayan Mukerji's recently-released film, Brahmastra, to now sharing his thoughts about Karan Johar's talk show, Koffee With Karan, Vivek is at his unfiltered best at the moment. The filmmaker received immense attention after the success of his critically-acclaimed film, The Kashmir Files. Since then, he has been making the headlines, sometimes for his controversial comments and most of the time for his philosophical answers about the Hindi film industry's condition at the moment.
In his latest interview with a news portal, Vivek finally revealed why he wouldn't appear on Karan Johar's show, Koffee With Karan. The answer he gave also featured his wife, Pallavi Joshi and their sex life. Scroll to know it all!
In a recent interview with Brut India, Vivek Agnihotri opened up about his thoughts about the popular celebrity talk show, Koffee With Karan, hosted by Karan Johar. When The Kashmir Files director was asked when we can expect him to be a guest on Koffee With Karan, Vivek Agnihotri ended all hopes in a split second with a fiery response. The filmmaker stated that he doesn't find himself the right fit for the kind of show it is. He added that the theme of the show is around discussing celebrities' sex life, and opening up about such things on national television isn't something he likes to do at such an age. Calling himself a non-sex-centred person, Vivek said:
"I wouldn't go because I have nothing to contribute. I mean, I cannot talk, I'm more than middle-aged now. I have two kids. So I'm not… Sex is not the primary concern of my life. And I'll feel odd sitting over there because it's so artificial… I am very spiritual, I am not a very sex-centred person, though I enjoy it with my wife. But I am not a… It's not that my life revolves around only sex and who's ditching who… and who's sleeping around with who."
Further in the interview, Vivek Agnihotri also stated that Karan Johar had created his talk show, Koffee With Karan, for his industry friends and family, who love talking about their personal lives on national television. Not only this, but the filmmaker also admitted that a lot of people aren't in favour of Karan's show because it is running to build his favourite people's image in public. Reflecting more on the things that he hates about Karan Johar's show, he explained:
"I think it is a bulls#&t programme also, because… what is it doing? Nobody relates with it, you're doing it only for your inner circle, for your friends and just to make each other happy, and some channels are paying for it. And people can see that this is a problem, you know. So if people get upset with all these news anchors who are screaming unnecessarily, then I think the both of them are exchanging notes. There is no difference between them."
For the unversed, Vivek Agnihotri and his wife, Pallavi Joshi had got married on June 28, 1997. Even before tying the knot, they dated each other for three years, and during that time, Vivek and Pallavi knew that they were simply soulmates. After some years of their wedding, the much-in-love couple had embraced parenthood. Vivek and Pallavi are parents of a daughter, Maalika and a son, Manan.
On the professional front, Vivek Agnihotri is reportedly working on the film, The Delhi Files, after the massive success of The Kashmir Files.
