In a recent Twitter post, Kangana showered heaps of praises on Simi Garewal and stated that she loves her interviews but at the same time, she took a dig at Karan Johar’s chat show. While she said that Simi Garewal's interview with J Jayalalithaa helped her prepare for her role in Thalaivi, she claimed that KJo’s shows are all about bullying and gossip.
A fan had tweeted about how one should watch Simi's interview with late former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa before they watched Thalaivi. Reacting to it, Kangana wrote in a tweet , "Yes @Simi_Garewaltapped tapped in to real essence of a celebrity, A complete sketch of the subject. Rendezvous with Jayaa maa has helped me a lot in my research, same can’t be said about certain Papa Jo whose interviews are all about bitching, bullying, gossip and frustrated sex."
Have a look:
Simi Garewal hosted her show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’ from 1997 for five seasons and interviewed many stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and others.
On the other hand, Karan Johar kickstarted his chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ in 2004 for six seasons. The show has seen many Btown celebrities gracing the couch.
Among other actors, Kangana Ranaut had also appeared on an episode of Koffee With Karan, wherein she called Karan a 'flagbearer of nepotism' and 'movie mafia'. This was the beginning of the brawl between them.
