Clad in a white off-shoulder dress, Kareena says, “I believe I’m the director’s actor,” prompting Karan to come up with a retort, “You’re nobody’s actor…you’re your own actor.”
Later in the video, Kareena asks the 51-year-old filmmaker about his activity just after waking up. The talk show host replies with a cheeky smile, “Ask me no secrets, I’ll tell you no lies.” Alia is seen in a deep brown shimmering dress, asking Karan if he wants people to “hate” her.

“Humble is not your middle name,” Kajol is seen telling Karan in the video. Feigning surprise at the words, the 51-year-old filmmaker blurts out, “How bitchy!” Rani appears alongside her cousin in a pale yellow mini dress and calmly informs Karan that she wants to “expose” him.
