Since Preity completes nine years in the film industry this year, she shares some funny moments from her early days while working with Bobby in her first film, Soldier. She also talks about her boyfriend Ness Wadia and tells Karan that she is sick of the media constantly scrutinizing her personal life. She admits that she's mellowed down and matured since the last time she was on the show and that she is on good terms with her peers, Rani and Kareena! She tells Karan that she hates being 'controversy's favorite child' talking about being dragged into the news, when Shekhar Kapur's wife went on record saying some very controversial things about her. Bobby shares the origin of the name "Pritam Singh" by which he fondly addresses Preity! They talk about the warm bond they share with each other and their unique style of talking to each other - they constantly fight and argue!
The Koffee gets even hotter, with the duo shooting back witty answers to Karan's tricky questions in the rapid fire round. What would Preity do if Ness asked her to give up acting? If she was a PR consultant, what advice would she give to Himesh Reshammiya? Which Bollywood actor's tell-all book would she love to read and which Bollywood actress's body does she envy? If Bobby would be locked up with Rakhi Sawant and Mallika Sherawat, what would he do? Which Punjab ka puttar does he get along best with? Does he prefer critical acclaim or commercial success? Watch out, who takes the hamper home in this very exciting rapid fire round. Will it be Bobby or Preity?
Excerpts from the interview:
