Certain media reports though state that the statement was part of a marketing plan. Yes, you read that right.

According to a report in the Indian Express, the show is just moving from television to OTT platform, Disney+Hotstar. It isn't clear if the same show with same format will stream on the OTT platform but sources state Johar is going to be back with a new chat show. 

If one can recall, in 2021, Karan did host special episodes of the chat show on the streaming platform. Titled 'Koffee Shots', the episodes were aimed at promoting Disney+Hotstar specials. One featured actors of the show 'Empire' - Kunal Kapoor, Dhrashti Dhami and Dino Morea, while the other featured Dhanush and Sara ALi KHan as they promoted their film 'Atrangi Re'. 

Both the episodes streamed exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

Johar, in fact, had hosted an Instagram live a few months back and stated that something exciting had been planned for 'Koffee With Karan' but he wasn't allowed to divulge details yet. 

So, it turns out that show that provided a window to the inner circle of Bollywood celebrities is not going anywhere. It is just going to be available on a streaming platform.
