Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar appeared for the first time on Karan Johar's show Koffee With Karan this Sunday and made quite a few revelations.

There's no doubt that Bhumi and Rajkummar are one of the most talented actors we have in the industry, but in the movies that they have done, we haven't seen them dancing much.

So, the show starts with Rao and Pednekar showing off their moves on Shah Rukh Khan's Chaiya Chaiya. After they took their seats, Karan began the 15th episode of the sixth season.

Bhumi Pednekar revealed that she was an assistant to a casting director in Yash Raj Films and also had an opportunity to audition some of YRF's talents.

When Karan asked her if any one of them was bad in their first auditions, Bhumi being outspoken that she has picked Disha Patani's name. She felt the actress was slightly undertrained at that time.

In the Rapid Fire round, Rajkummar said that he had a crush on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan while working on Fanney Khan and he wants to work with Alia Bhatt, and also dedicated the song 'Tareef Karu Kya Uski' to Deepika Padukone.

During Bhumi’s turn, she revealed that she wants to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and how she had a crush on one of her co-workers. She, however, did not reveal who she was talking about.

Karan also asked them about their take on nepotism. Bhumi said, "When you start a new journey, it is going to be alien at first but people are very accepting, I never felt out of place."

"I have always felt wanted and my work has been appreciated. I go to these parties and people give me so much love. So it’s been pretty good for us."

While Rao divulged, "When I was looking for work after Love Sex Aur Dhokha, there was not really a lot of work. Probably, if I was an insider, people would have pushed me."

"After giving two back-to-back successful films, I was still doing smaller parts.” Johar went on to neatly tie their perspectives together with, “Nepotism or not, eventually, talent is what rocks."
