The eighth season of Koffee with Karan came to an end this week and in the last episode of this season, Karan hosted Sumukhi Suresh, Kusha Kapila, Danish Sait and Tanmay Bhat as he gave out the Koffee awards of the season. The guests were also the jury for the Koffee awards where they voted on some of the best moments and performances of the season. Karan casually admitted that he is Poo while giving out the ‘best moment’ award from this season to Rani Mukerji and Kajol. The rapid fire round, that’s often seen as the most entertaining bit of the episode, was one of the award categories and the ‘Best rapid fire’ was shared by two celebrities – Saif Ali Khan and Ananya Panday. He called Ananya who was rather surprised as she did not win the rapid fire round during her episode with Sara Ali Khan. “I’d like to thank a certain ‘boy Kapur’ for that,” she said.

The episodes featuring Rani Mukerji-Kajol, Kareena Kapoor-Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn-Rohit Shetty, Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone and Varun Dhawan-Sidharth Malhotra were in competition and the jury selected Rani Mukerji and Kajol’s episode as the best in the season. The episode featuring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone was given a special jury award. “In my history of Koffee with Karan, there has never been a moment where I felt so real. I felt like the cameras were not rolling and something truly came out, like it was cathartic for me in a weird way,” Karan said. Saif Ali Khan won the ‘Best performance – male’ award and to announce Saif’s win, the host called Kareena who opened her conversation by saying that she was going to ‘block’ Karan. Karan quickly put a word in and said that this was about the Koffee awards which put Kareena at ease. Deepika Padukone’s appearance, which was frequently described as “brave” became the ‘Best performance – female’ of the season. In the end, Varun Dhawan won the ‘Best Koffee burn’ award of the season for calling Karan ‘Karan Johar ghar-tode’ and ‘Komolika’.
