So, if you haven’t watched the recent episode of Koffee With Karan 8, we have got you covered! Check out major highlights from Rani Mukerji and Kajol’s appearance on Koffee With Karan 8.
Rani Mukerji taught hookstep of Koi Mil Gaya from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan
During the chat, Karan Johar revealed how Rani Mukerji turned choreographer for SRK and Kajol in the iconic song Koi Mil Gaya. He said, “Those were the days that none of us rehearsed right for the song and dance moves? There was no such thing as rehearsal hall, there was one and I think Rani was the only one, she was new and young, she went and rehearsed all the steps. Now we are taking this top wide shot with Farah Khan in command, in control and it was the signature step of Koi Mil Gaya. Suddenly, cut happened and Kajol looked at Rani that time and said “What are you doing?, something wrong you are doing” Shah Rukh Khan also said, “Kuch galat ho raha hai”.
He added, “Loudly, barring from afar, Farah said, “She is the only one who is doing it right, you all are doing rubbish”. Then, immediately both SRK and Kajol went to Rani who had become the choreographer teaching them the step. It was hilarious.”
Distance relationship of Kajol and Rani Mukerji
When Karan Johar said that previously, Kajol and Rani did not share a close friendship or a relationship, Kajol said, “It was an organic distance and where work is concerned, I think it’s more that both of us liked where we were.” Further, Rani Mukerji agreed that there was a distance between the two. She said, “I have known her as a kid and she is always Kajol didi for me. And it was a bit strange and I guess when you grow up and grow apart, you don’t really know the reason why. Because we didn’t meet that often because Kajol didi used to stay in town and we were in Juhu, so me and Tanisha were much closer, we are still but Kajol didi was always closer to the boys of the family, like my brother and all of them.”
Rani Mukerji and Kajol address age discrimination in older actors and actresses
Further up in the conversation, Karan Johar discussed elder actors being paired with younger actresses. To this, Rani said, “It’s the truth of cinema and not particularly the cinema of the world but Indian Cinema.” Kajol added, “It’s the truth of society actually. You have older men having younger wives and nobody raises an eyebrow. You’ve had 30-year-old men getting married to 13 year old girls for like 100’s of years.” Further, Rani added, “I think it’s what we want to accept and what we don’t want to accept. So I think it comes from a collective thought process that has been told to us from childhood and that is what we are following because we are not using our brains.”
Kajol rejected 3 Idiots, Mohra and Dil To Pagal Hai
During the rapid-fire round, Kajol was asked about the roles she turned down which emerged as big hits. To this, Kajol said that there were quite a few roles that she turned down like in 3 Idiots, Mohra and Dil To Pagal Hai. All three movies are some of the most loved ones among the audience.

During the same fun segment of rapid-fire, Rani Mukerji was asked which team of the YRF Spy Universe would she like to be a part of. Whether in the team of Pathaan ,Tiger franchise or War. To this, Rani gave a savage reply saying, “Actually I would ask them to join my team because I have a Mardaani franchise.” Her response not only impressed us, but it also impressed Karan Johar too!
