While one thought that Ajay Devgn coming solo on Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan might turn out to be damp squib, Devgn has conversely turned out to be an absolute shocker.

In a statement, which threw Karan Johar almost off his chair, Devgn looked straight into Karan's eye and said that Bebo and Saif should not tie the knot.

The story goes that Karan was in his favourite 'Rapid Fire Round', when Devgn blurted out that Saif and Kareena should not marry. What exactly happened? "Well, Karan asked Ajay to render some piece of marital advice to Saif and Kareena.

Without batting an eyelid, Ajay said, 'Don't get married'. If it wasn't a 'Rapid Fire Round' Karan would have definitely probed why Devgn holds this opinion about Saif's and Kareena's future," says our source.

Is that statement going to remain in the episode? Said the source, "Why not? That's quite a statement, isn't it?"
But knowing Karan to be a curious cat, we wouldn't be surprised if he asked Ajay why he said that about Saif and Kareena.

What is surprising is that the advice of not to marry has come from a man who himself is rather happily married to KJo's good friend.

According to a friend of Devgn, the statement was made in good fun. "Woh usne masti mein bola hoga," he said.

Devgn, Kareena and Saif remained unavailable for comment. Ditto for Fazila Allana, managing director of SOL, which produces the show.

If it weren't a 'Rapid Fire' round KJo would have probed further for sure
