‘Koffee With Karan’ S7 Ep6: Sonam Kapoor Did Not Sugarcoat Her And Arjun’s Struggle With Emotional Eating And Weight. We’re Glad.
In recent times, I’ve learnt a lot about myself. I’ve learnt that when I’m upset or happy, I show it to myself with the kind of food I eat. Yes, I’m an emotional eater and especially when the days are too tough to handle. For the longest time, I thought I was the only one who did that and quite honestly judged myself for it, but it is now when I read about celebs who struggle with it as well, that it makes me feel less alone and a bit inspired to control it. After Namita Thapar openly spoke about how she has been coping with emotional eating for 40 years, it is Sonam Kapoor who revealed on Koffee With Karan season 7 episode 6 that both she and Arjun Kapoor are emotional eaters and that they’ve struggled with weight all their lives.
On August 11, the cool cousins of B-Town – Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Arjun Kapoor – graced the Koffee With Karan season 7 couch and as expected there was a lot of sass being thrown along with a few truth bombs dropped. And in one such moment when Karan Johar asks Arjun about the reason for putting his weight transformation picture on social media, he gets served a steaming plate of absolute truth.

Arjun Kapoor agrees with the fact that after giving hits back to back and setting a standard for himself, he unknowingly fell off the wagon and people’s comments about it made him realise this. And so, as an attempt to get back in the game and show the people that he was still serious about his work, he put that picture up as a reminder that he still is very passionate about his work and is working towards it.
On Koffee With Karan season 7 when Sonam Kapoor was asked about his transformation, she gets extremely real and reveals to Karan Johar that Arjun Kapoor has never had an easy life – especially after his mother passed away and then the things that were going on with his family. She even added that she herself along with him has always struggled with food and for the most part that came from a place of being emotional. She agreed to the fact that they both were emotional eaters and that is okay as long as it makes that person happy. And the fact that he has worked on himself and finally has some stability, he has realized that and is coping with it.
