The upcoming episode of Koffee with Karan season 6 will witness Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal as they make their Koffee debut on Karan Johar's celebrity talk show. While there is not much that is common between the two, it is undeniable that both have been labelled as breakthrough performers this year. Audiences are widely appreciating their non-hero roles, which has also fanned debates on whether superstars and super-stardom is slowly beginning to wane in a generation of relatable characters in story-driven films.

Ayushmann Khurrana, who began his Bollywood career by playing a man who donates sperm for a living (Vicky Donor, 2012), has been churning gold at the box office this year. His performance in Andhadhun, where he played a blind (?) pianist has been universally lauded. Two weeks later, Amit Sharma's Badhaai Ho hit the theatres, which again proved to be box office success. Despite Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta's onscreen chemistry overshadowing that of Ayushmann and Sanya Malhotra, Khurrana impressed the audiences with his easy charm and affable goofiness.

Similarly, Vicky Kaushal has had a dream run this year. The powerhouse of talent was first discovered after his impeccable performance as a torn man trying to situate love amidst caste biases in Masaan, and then there was no looking back for the actor. Despite his comparatively lower screen presence in Raazi, Kaushal was convincing in the role of supportive husband belonging to the other side of the border. He then appeared in Karan Johar's segment in the four-part anthology film Lust Stories, and then in Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, as Sanjay Dutt's friend Kamli. However, it was his turn as a conflicted and naive man with major commitment phobia in Manmarziyaan that earned him the loudest applause.

Moreover, Kaushal is also part of the ensemble cast for Karan Johar's magnum opus Takht.

After a glorious year, the pair will come on the show to talk about lesser tenor. The promo, that has been floating around on social media, shows Ayushmann reveal that he had indeed donated sperm in real life, and Kaushal pretend-faint on hearing that Katrina Kaif wants to work with him.

Koffee with Karan season 6 airs every Sunday on Star World at 9 pm.
