Emraan Hashmi reflects on calling Aishwarya Rai ‘plastic’ on ‘Koffee With Karan’, says ‘I had to bear the brunt of it’ | – Times of India

Remember that unforgettable episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’ when Emraan Hashmi appeared on this Karan Johar show with Mahesh Bhatt and called Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ‘plastic’? Well, Emraan certainly was outspoken on the show and now that he looks back on it, he confesses that he had to face the brunt of it for quite some time. Emraan is a part of a web-show ‘ShowTime’ produced by Karan and in a recent interview; he opened up on the ‘KWK’ episode.
Emraan was asked if his character in the new web-series (who is quite blunt) is similar to how he was on the ‘KWK’ episode. The actor told Bollywood Bubble, “I am playing a fictional character here (Showtime), who calls a spade a spade. Talking about that show (Koffee With Karan) that you spoke about right now, well I had to bear the brunt for it for quite some time for really calling a spade a spade. You know what, when that rapid fire round happened, Karan had cut the shot, and he just looked around on the set and everyone was dumbfounded. He asked ‘Can you actually keep this (Emraan’s answer)?’ And a couple of people behind the camera said ‘Yes’.”
However, much later after the episode aired, Emraan had said during a chat with Hindustan Times that he did not mean it and is a huge fan of Aishwarya. He expressed, “I’m a big fan of Aishwarya. It’s the format of the show. I can’t not say things and not win the hamper. I love her. I have always been a great admirer of her work. I knew people would make a big deal out of it… so what, people make a big deal out of nonsense all the time.”
‘Showtime’ sees Emraan alongside Rajeev Khandelwal, Mouni Roy among others.
