For the first three seasons of Koffee with Karan, Shah Rukh Khan was a constant. He didn’t participate in the fourth season, but he came back to start the fifth. Host Karan Johar discussed if Shah Rukh will be seen returning to Koffee with Karan Season 8 after skipping the previous two installments in a recent interview with Pinkvilla.
Shah Rukh is present, but he doesn’t seem to want to take center stage. His silence is well-deserved. We should give him that as filmmakers and fans,” Karan stated in the interview.
Since his son Aryan Khan’s arrest in a drug case in 2021, Shah Rukh has not spoken with the media or made an appearance on talk shows. But last season, when his wife Gauri Khan appeared on the Koffee Couch, she talked about the struggles the family was facing at the time.

In 2004, Shah Rukh and Kajol, his co-star in three Karan Johar films, opened the first-ever episode of Koffee with Karan. In the second instalment season debut, Rani Mukerji, their co-star from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, joined the two.
Actually, Shah Rukh made three appearances on Koffee with Karan Season 1. Once, he and Gauri participated in an episode that also included Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan, who were then a couple. In the season finale, He shared the couch with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham co-star Amitabh Bachchan in the season finale.
After going solo for Season 3, Shah Rukh began Season 5 alongside Alia Bhatt, his Dear Zindagi co-star. In response to his absence during Season 4, he made a joke about wanting the show’s TRPs to decrease.
He disappeared from Season 6 due to a reported rift with Karan, which was ultimately settled. The actor’s absence from Season 7 was explained by the filmmaker as a result of his real comeback this year with the release of Pathaan.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will be included in the first episode of Koffee with Karan Season 8, which will debut on Disney+ Hotstar on Thursday at 12 a.m.
