One of the interesting moments of the episode was when Abhishek revealed a hilarious anecdote about how his sister and the host Karan Johar became friends. 

When the ‘Bluffmaster’ star celebrated his seventh birthday, his parents had hosted a bash in Madh Island, Mumbai. The dress code of the party was cowboy-themed and many like Hrithik Roshan followed so by dressing up as a cowboy. However, Karan came dressed as a Superman with blue stockings and red underwear over it and even his own sister didn’t follow the dress code. 

The birthday boy was so pissed with their costumes that he tied them together to a tree as punishment. Since that incident, KJo and Shweta became very good friends, revealed Abhishek. 

Another interesting incident is when AB Jr shared that Shweta had a huge crush on Aamir Khan during her teenage days. And later, Aamir, used to write letters to her on her birthdays when he came to know about her fondness for him. 

Shweta also revealed that her brother was a ‘thumb-sucker’ and ‘bed-wetter’ in his childhood. 

The sibling duo also spoke about their respective bond with their parents. Shweta is closer to Big B while Abhishek is his mother Jaya Bachchan’s favourite.
