View Koffee with Karan - Picture GalleryRichard Gere, Kareena Kapoor, sister Karisma, boyfriend Shahid Kapoor, John Abraham, Bipasha Basu...the guest list for the new innings of Karan Johar's TV talk show sounds like a dream come true.

The second season of "Koffee With Karan" goes on air Sunday on STAR One and STAR World. The host again has a breathtaking line-up of stars waiting to claim our attentions.

Saif Ali Khan didn't show up with his ladylove Rosa for the recording of "Koffee With Karan". He instead brought sister Soha along. That suited STAR's purposes fine because the Khan siblings are becoming quite a high-profile public duo.

"It's too premature to comment on my guest list. But yes, the endeavour is to bring on the stars like never before," Karan told IANS.

"I don't want anyone to say that this season's 'Koffee With Karan' looks like a repetition of the last season. Even when I bring on non-film folks, I want to make sure my audience isn't robbed of its glamour quotient," he added.

Though the director is keeping mum about the list, sources said Karan has shot eight major episodes of the chat fest. These include a director special, which features Raj Kumar Hirani, Rakesh Roshan, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Kunal Kohli. The special episode also has a segment devoted to critics talking about the filmmakers.

And, if you were waiting to see John Abraham and Bipasha Basu together on television after their celebrity appearance on "Kaun Banega Crorepati", Karan is going to make your wish come true.

The John-Bipasha episode apparently has the couple in a candid mood.

Also in the cans is an episode featuring Hrithik Roshan with Priyanka Chopra. The last time Karan got them on the show in different permutations.

The 'socialite special' of "Koffee With Karan" will feature industrialist-cum-politician Vijay Mallya and columnist Shobha De.

Apparently, he wished the tête-à-tête to be issue-based. Karan, however, teased out some revealing moments in the superstar's life on his journey from hedonism to Buddhism.

In one of the episodes, Karan brings together New York-based Indian director Mira Nair and Tabu, who are Karan's "current favourites" after the two impressed him deeply in their current collaborative effort "The Namesake".
