Koffee with Karan 5: Aamir Khan to appear solo on the show

After hosting Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, Karan Johar is set to welcome the other big Khan – Aamir Khan on his popular chat show ‘Koffee with Karan 5’, but ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ is said to be making a solo appearance.

Aamir appeared on the show for the first time in its fourth season where he was accompanied by wife Kiran Rao. He had then mentioned that he didn’t prefer to be on a chat show and that was why he was keeping away from it. But this time, the ‘3 Idiots’ actor actually asked Karan to invite him on the show.

During a recent event, Aamir jokingly mentioned that he wanted to be on the show but Karan wasn’t inviting him. “I would definitely want to go on the show, but he is not calling me. Please ask Karan to invite me,” the actor said in jest.

Aamir will be reportedly shooting for the episode this weekend. He is gearing up for the release of his film ‘Dangal’. It is said that his on-screen daughters in the film - Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh, will also be joining him for a short segment on the show. The episode will be aired on December 18, ahead of the release of ‘Dangal’ which will hit theatres on December 23.

Directed by Nitish Tiwari, ‘Dangal’ is a sports biopic of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trained his daughters Geeta and Babita to become wrestling champions and win laurels for the country.

Aamir plays the role of Mahavir, while Sanaya and Fatima enact his daughters Geeta and Babita. The movie also stars Sakshi Tanwar in the role of Aamir’s on-screen wife.
