The Kapil Sharma Show has landed in another controversy, this time it is because of Punjab local bodies minister Navjot Singh Sidhu. Reacting to the recent attacks on Pulwama, Sidhu had commented saying, “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished.”
His statements have hurt not only his followers but also fans of The Kapil Sharma Show.
Fans have been demanding to throw him out of the Kapil Sharma show. Else the fans threatened they will boycott the show. In fact, # Boycott Sidhu has been trending since yesterday.
According to a news report in TimesNows, the channel is in talks with the production house and wants Sidhu to be replaced. He is likely to be replaced by Archana Puran Singh. However, the Indian Express online report says that Sidhu has already been asked to leave. According to the report, “The channel has told the production house to sack Sidhu. It’s not a temporary thing. They are going to get him out. In fact, even in the past, during the MeToo movement, when there were allegations against Anu Malik, one of the judges of Indian Idol, the channel took a similar stand.
The channel has shot a couple of episodes with Archana Puran Singh and most probably, she will be the one replacing Sidhu.”
