director Karan Johar is back to brewing coffee for STAR India. From February 11, STAR India will commence the second season of the popular chat show, 'Koffee with Karan'. The show is produced by SOL.
The show will be aired every Sunday at 9 pm on two channels of the STAR Network, STAR One and STAR World. It will feature a mix of celebrities from the entertainment, sports and corporate worlds.
Explaining the rationale behind running the show on both channels simultaneously, Ajay Vidyasagar, executive vice-president, STAR India, says, "This has been done to gather a bigger audience base. While STAR World attracts a more upscale audience, STAR One has a much stronger mass audience pulling power."
In fact, after the show was aired on STAR World, it was re-telecast on STAR One; with a view to broad-base the viewers for the show.
This time around, the show boasts of celebrities such as Priya Dutt, Sanjay Dutt, Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham and Bipasha Basu. There's no change in the format, but the channel claims that the show will be more 'irreverent' and 'tongue-in-cheek'.
"'Koffee with Karan' has been one of the most popular shows with the right mix of fun and excitement and, considering its huge popularity, we have decided to air it simultaneously on STAR One and STAR World," adds Sameer Nair, CEO, STAR India.
