Koffee With Karan Season 8’s latest episode featured Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan as the guests. In a candid conversation during the Rapid Fire round, Karan Johar asked Alia if she views Deepika Padukone as her competition. Alia quickly responded, “No, why would she be?” She clarified that Deepika is her senior, emphasizing there’s no competition. When questioned about being the best actress in the industry, Alia humbly expressed her goal to strive for the best without claiming to be the best, acknowledging other talented actors.
Interestingly, Kareena Kapoor Khan was questioned about considering Deepika Padukone as a competition, but she tactfully avoided the query, stating it was a question for Alia, not herself. Alia and Kareena, who share a familial connection through Alia’s marriage to Ranbir Kapoor (Kareena’s cousin), discussed family, husbands, and kids during their joint appearance on the show.
