Kareena Kapoor in "Coffee with Karan"

Koffee with Karan is a talk show on STAR World India, hosted by Mumbai (India) based film producer and director Karan Johar.

The show airs on STAR One & STAR World from 9pm to 10pm IST and on MHz Networks television Channel 56 on 11 AM to 11:30 AM on Sundays.

The is noted for its fresh and witty appeal, and it is very popular with the younger audiences. The show began to air in 2004 and was a huge success. The first episode aired on November 19, 2004 and the first season ended on May 27, 2005. The show had been put on hold due to Johar's commitment to his next directorial project, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006).

The show brings together celebrities who are interviewed in the show's trademark informal style. The show has many sections such as a "rapid fire" round in which a volley of questions are thrown at the celebrity who has to think of answers off the top of their heads sometimes with hilarious results. The winner receives a coffee hamper. Sometimes the show includes opinions from members of the public.

Regular Segments:
Rapid Fire
The segment involves Johar asking a volley of questions to the guest, in which they have to answer as quickly as possible. The questions usually involve making choices between two options or just giving a straight answer. Johar usually forces the guest to choose one option of the two he presents.
The Lie-O-Meter
Johar uses a bleep, which he calls the Lie-O-Meter, to indicate if he thinks the guest is lying. The Lie-O-Meter was mostly used in season one.
Sometimes the show features a segment which allows the guest to see and hear other people's opinions. They may come from the general public or even people within the industry itself.

The first season was huge success, and the programme became the first English entertainment show to ever get a huge rating in India. The episode in which Abhishek Bachchan and Preity Zinta appeared together was the highest viewed episode in season one.

The second season began on February 11, 2007.

After a 4 year break and various reruns on Star World, KWK returned on Star TV for Season 3 on Nov 7 2010.
