The upcoming episode of 'Koffee with Karan', features the Kapoors, to be more precise Kareena and Karisma's father Randhir Kapoor and 'star-in-the-waiting' Ranbir Kapoor's parents, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor. And not to forget Rajiv Kapoor.
As is well known, most of the Kapoors have a wacky nickname associated with them. Elaborating on the reasons, Randhir Kapoor disclosed that Rishi Kapoor is 'Chintu' because he was very tiny at birth time. He did not even spare himself as he told Karan, "I was very fair and so I was named 'Dabbu' after the white pet poodle of the house!" Randhir Kapoor's wit came to the fore again when Karan asked him to suggest a nickname for daughter Kareena's ('Bebo') boyfriend Shahid Kapoor and without batting an eyelid, Randhir suggested 'Dodo'!
We hope that Kareena and Shahid, who are presently in Kullu-Manali, shooting for Imtiaz Ali's movie, will also tune in to the interesting episode.
