The latest season of Koffee with Karan has been in the limelight more than once for its edgy content, and quite often for its controversial interactions too.

Recently, in the episode starring Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar made the young actors perform a skit, where the two had to star as gay men interacting in a bar. While the skit came under fire on Twitter, two directors have stood by Karan’s right to have some fun on the show.

 

Says writer-film editor Apurva Asrani, “I had a laugh. It was done in good spirit. Neither Arjun, nor Varun were disgusted or poking fun at gay people. If anything, they were shy, which was quite endearing. Really, we’ve come a long way from Dostana. As for Karan’s query on penis sizes, I don’t see the insensitivity towards any particular community. That’s probably just Karan trying to score some titillation.”

Adds Onir, “I have not seen it. So I cannot comment if it was ridicule or just harmless fun. I think it’s good to have a sense of humour and be able to laugh and not take everything too seriously. We Indians get offended at everything.”
