MUMBAI: Indian film director Karan Johar’s crowd-pleasing talk show Koffee with Karan came back with its sixth season earlier this week. The opening episode of the new season featured Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone.

The show airs on Star World, which is a part of Star India. According to Livemint, the broadcaster is anticipated to make around Rs 35-40 crore from sponsorship deals.

The list of the sponsors includes high profile brand names such as multimedia speaker Google Home which is the presenting sponsor of the show, ‘driven by’ German automobile manufacturer company Audi and ‘powered by’ telecom operator Idea. Jaquar, OPPO F9 Pro and L’Oreal Paris are the lifestyle, special and beauty partners for the show.

Speaking to Livemint, a Star spokesperson said, “As the longest running chat show on Indian television, Koffee With Karan sets new benchmarks with every new season creating unprecedented buzz and aggregating premium consumers across the television and digital platforms.”

“As such, brands are more than excited to leverage the show and create unique integrations that would excite their target audiences,” added the spokesperson.

The spokesperson also explained how they’ll use brand integrations during the show, like; the host Johar could use the Google Home features in between the show or in the rapid fire round, the questions could be read from an OPPO phone or a celebrity who gives the answer of the season in the rapid fire round could be awarded with an Audi.

Star is also looking to engage with the viewers through social network, as every week, viewers will have a chance to win autographed mugs of their favourite celebrities by participating in the Twitter contest held by Star World. The show will also offer an opportunity to be on the Koffee couch and field rapid fire questions from Johar through a Facebook camera innovation which will be captured on social media.
