Comedian Kapil Sharma has always been the talk of the town, be it good or bad. Recently Kapil Sharma Show and guest Navjot Singh Sidhu are facing a backlash from netizens over Sidhu’s comment on the Pulwama terror attack.
44 CRPF men were killed in the Pulwama attack leaving the nation in shock. After the brutal terror attack the whole country condemned the attack, Politician Navjot Singh Sidhu shared own opinion on the attack, which didn’t go well with the netizens.
Soon after Sidhu’s statement in which he had questioned “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?” angered people started trending #BoycottKapilSharmaShow #UnsubscribeSonyTV and #BoycottSidhu on Twitter, lashing out on Navjot Singh Sidhu over his comment.
Following, several reports started pouring which said that Navjot Singh Sidhu has been removed from the show and that Archana Puran Singh would replace him on the show.
But to rest all the speculations, Kapil Sharma spoke to the media at an event, where his statement has invited trouble for him.
While addressing the media Kapil said “These are very small things, or can also be a part of propaganda. I feel banning someone or sacking Navjot Singh Sidhu from the show (The Kapil Sharma Show) is not the solution. We need to look for a permanent solution”.
Talking about the Pulwama attack, Kapil said that he is with the government. “We are with the government but still we need a permanent solution. The cowardly act in Pulwama that killed our soldiers shouldn’t be forgotten and the culprits should be punished,” the comedian added.
His comments received severe criticism by netizens and another trend started on Twitter #BoycottKapilSharma .
This was the first time Kapil Sharma has commented on the controversy surrounding his show and Navjot Singh Sidhu.
