Koffee With Karan is one of the most controversial shows in the history of Indian television. Controversies have stirred, and friendships have been broken over the years. But eyeballs were raised when Emraan Hashmi went unfiltered and called Aishwarya Rai Bachchan “plastic.” He had to face massive backlash over his remarks. Scroll below for what he thinks about the public drama today!

For the unversed, during a rapid-fire section, Emraan was asked to name actors that came to his mind based on the words prompted by host KJo. He called Salman Khan “macho,” but everyone’s jaws dropped when Karan asked who, according to him, is plastic in Bollywood.

Karan Johar’s reaction to Emraan Hashmi calling Aishwarya Rai “plastic”

Emraan Hashmi, without any hesitation, blurted, “Aishwarya Rai.” However, he took a U-turn shortly after the episode aired. The Tiger 3 star said he was a fan of Aishwarya, and the show’s format made him say what he said. But he now reveals what went behind the curtains and how his statement even left Karan Johar speechless.

Emraan Hashmi told Bollywood Life, “Talking about Koffee With Karan, 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’.”
