Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal recently made a joint appearance on Karan Johar's chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’ Season 8. Both the actors got candid about their proposal stories and shared how their “couch” manifestations came true. Nonetheless, the episode was all loved up. 

During one of the show’s segments, host Karan referred to Kiara as a “hit machine” and “lucky mascot”. And why not? She has delivered  some of the biggest box office hits, including ‘Kabir Singh’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’ and ‘Satyaprem Ki Katha’. 

When Karan asked her how she feels about the tag, the actress said, "I mean, it feels great that the films have done so well. But I must share this because you said lucky.” 

She further recalled what legend David Beckham told her at the India vs New Zealand World Cup 2023 semi-final game, and said, “I was at the semi-finals (Cricket World Cup 2023), and I happened to be sitting next to David Beckham. And someone around us was talking about how India is on this lucky streak with the way we are playing."

The actress quoted the football icon, and said, "He (David Beckham) said to me, ‘It's not luck. It's someone's hard work.' And, it hit me. I really resonated with that because it's never just a fluke. It's never just like a stroke of luck. It is always a team, in our case of course. And many people's hard work. It's talent, skill, and hard work. If you don't have that, no matter if the stars are in your favour, not everyone hits it out." 

For those caught unaware, David Beckham was recently in India for a four-day trip as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Meanwhile, the episode featuring Vicky and Kiara is already out. Earlier, Karan Johar shared a teaser on Instagram, and called Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal "the beauty and the bahadur." 

‘Koffee With Karan 8’ is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
