Aamir Khan embarrasses himself on ‘Koffee With Karan’, says Shabana Azmi is Javed Akhtar’s daughter during rapid fire round.
Koffee With Karan is one of the most popular TV shows in India. Its hosted by Bollywood’s top filmmaker Karan Johar, and the other reason that the audience love to watch the show is because the celebrities (who come on the show) are asked tricky questions…which either embarrasses them or affects their relationship with other stars in the industry.
Aamir Khan, who was on ‘Koffee With Karan’ to promote his movie Dangal, did goof up during one of the questions, and embarrassed himself.
During the rapid fire round, Karan Johar named two generation of a family and asked Aamir Khan to name the third. So when Karan named first generation Jan Nishar Akhtar, second generation Javed Akhtar and then it was Aamir’s turn to name the third generation…
And the right answer would have been Farhan Akhtar or Zoya Akhtar, but Aamir Khan (in a fit of hurry) called out Shabana Azmi as the third generation of Akhtar family.
Karan Johar was shocked on hearing the answer, and followed it up by bursting into laughter. It was then that Aamir Khan’s co-stars in Dangal – Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra (who play her daughters) came to Aamir’s rescue and prompted him Zoya Akhtar’s name.
Aamir Khan was obviously embarrassed at the goof up he had caused. Karan continued to pull Aamir’s leg throughout the episode for his goof-up.
Although Aamir Khan is Mr. Perfectionist, in this case he did manage to embarrass himself.
For those who’re not aware, Shabana Azmi is Javed Akhtar’s wife and his two kids are Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar (they’re Javed’s children from his first wife – Honey Irani).
