Koffee With Karan season finale with Malaika, Ayan, Rohan and Neha was hilarious
On 12 March, 2017, Karan Johar hosted the season finale of his show Koffee with Karan, and this episode was about giving away awards to the stars who had appeared on the show.
The Koffee Award, which is a golden cup and saucer, is an award that Johar calls the most important one, even outdoing the Filmfare. As Malaika Arora put it, "They're [the stars] are going to drink coffee in it, eat out of it, swim in it."
This year's panel for the Koffee Awards featured Malaika Arora, Neha Dhupia, Rohan Joshi and Ayan Mukherji.
Karan Johar described Season 5, which pushed the total episode count to over 100, as being "semi-scandalous, semi-sensational". The panel, too, were asked how they would describe this season.
Ayan said, "I'm just glad that your big year on television is coming to an end with these many shows you're doing and we'll have him back in our office producing the films we'd like to make." Avid viewer Malaika liked the sexual undertones throughout the season.
Rohan made a sarcastic comment about how he has never seen anything like Season 5, "especially since Season 4 of Koffee With Karan ended." Neha said that Karan was better informed about his guests and that he sported a look that said, "I know it all but I'm going to play it cool".

Our favourite moments from the show were the instances where the panelists made fun of Karan himself, the awkward looks they exchanged while discussing Kangana and when Rohan Joshi wondered what he was doing on this panel.
