When director Karan Johar took up the challenge to host Koffee With Karan in 2004, the idea was to push the envelope in the celebrity chat space and create something 'candid, conversational and tad controversial.'
12 years, five seasons and 100 episodes later, one can safely say the show has achieved its targets quite memorably.
K Jo's naughty natter not only convinced Bollywood's A-listers to reveal their playful side as they got comfortable, competitive and catty on its coveted couch in a bid to win hampers and goody bags but also to appear in exciting, exclusive combos.
Here are 10 of my all-time favourite episodes in no particular order:
1. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol
It's only fair that the stars of his first film should grace his debut as host too.
In the first episode of the first season, KJo highlights the warm friendship he shares with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol through fun anecdotes and memories.
When the topic of their celebrated chemistry comes up, Kajol recalls an SRK statement where he says, 'I could make love to a cow and make it look like chemistry.'
Before SRK can finish his sentence to explain, 'What I was trying to say is...' Kajol butts in to conclude, 'That I am a cow? You dog!'
They laugh hard and loud. A snort escapes the actress, prompting the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director to comment, 'Kajol, you cannot laugh like that, you're on camera.'
Sadly, things aren't hunky-dory between the two since the Shivaay-Ae Dil Hai Mushkil clash.

2. Hema Malini and Zeenat Aman
What better than a little candour to go with nostalgia?
And that's exactly what transpires when Bollywood's eternal Dream Girl Hema Malini appears alongside its most hottest, hippest denizen, Zeenat Aman.
The reigning queens of the 1970s may exhibit personalities as different as chalk and cheese, but they sure turn Karan Johar's chat into a delightful one with their charisma and confessions.
While Zeenat is eloquence personified, the Seeta Aur Geeta heroine's carefree air is a hoot as are her responses and perkily admits to all her alleged linkups as true.
