Karan Johar broke down when best buddy Shahrukh Khan spoke about his former friends Farah Khan and Salman Khan.
Says a source from the Koffee sets, "SRK's episode with KJo is emotional where Shahrukh has been caught in a mellow, introspective mood. He's emotionally vulnerable, revealing things that have hurt him in the last year."
The source adds, "When Karan pointed out that people feel that old friends Farah and Salman have a problem with Shahrukh, SRK says, 'I don't know how to make friends and if I do, I don't know how to keep them. If Salman and Farah are upset with me it's 100 per cent my fault but I can't pick up the phone and say sorry. I can't apologise because of ego but because I can't just get myself to ask people to come back to me. I had asked my parents to come back and they didn't'"
King Khan spoke highly of his former friends. "SRK spoke very honestly about Sallu and FK. He admits that the biggest problem in his life is his cell phone, as many of his friends accuse him of not taking or ignoring their calls and messages."
Karan was moved to tears when SRK said that he can't constantly tell people that he loves them. "He says, 'I feel it's understood that I love them if I have told them once... I can't keep repeating it... I have a problem saying 'I love you' twice and thrice and keep repeating the words... Even in my films I can't keep saying 'I love you!' "
Says KJo, "It was a totally different cup of coffee this time. It's awkward to discuss and recreate such intimate scenes normally again. I have never become emotional on Koffee With Karan because that's never been the tone of the show (it's usually spicy and controversial)."
About his buddy's appearance on the show KJo, "Shahrukh is warm and heartfelt as he naturally is. He has spoken on all his relationships, family and friendships.
There's certain strength in what he had to say. He is beyond any kind of issues. You feel he has risen above every situation and comes through beautifully on the show.
This coffee on the couch episode with SRK was emotionally unplugged more than humour unplugged. It's a new impact!"
