Maria Sharapova was recently interviewed on a live chat show by Bollywood producer and director Karan Johar in Dubai.
Karan Johar, whose celebrity conversations on television are famous, got Sharapova to get bombarded with lots of questions, of course over ‘koffee’, with him.
“It was for a huge Dubai-based project called Dubai Lifestyle. And they had invited Maria Sharapova for the launch of their project . I was asked to do a one-on-one with Maria. In spite of my impossible schedule, I readily agreed. Maria Sharapova is a sports legend. It was an informal chat. She had apparently been told I was the David Letterman of India. So she was expecting someone much older.”
Karan was invited for the formal launch of a lifestyle project – The Dubai Lifestyle City in Dubailand, the region’s latest tourism, leisure and entertainment destination, which was inaugurated by the celebrated player and style icon.
Sharapova looked pretty nice in a leopard sports dress and doesn’t seem too upset about her recent loss to Justine Henin in the finals of WTA Championships in Madrid.
I guess Karan must have liked his ‘one-on-one’ with Maria!!
