Navjot Singh Sidhu has been sacked from The Kapil Sharma Show. This move came after his offensive comments on Pulwama terror attack. His remarks didn’t go down too well with users on social media and almost everybody wanted him to be removed from The Kapil Sharma show and as a result, Sidhu was shown the exit door.
During Sidhu’s recent interaction after the cowardly attack, he said, “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.”
As per the reports, Archana Puran Singh has been appointed for the show and has even shot for a few episodes. A report quoted Archana Puran Singh saying, “I had shot for TKSS on the 9th and 13th of February, a day before the unfortunate attacks happened. I was called in by the channel because Sidhu wasn’t available for those days for some personal work/ I agreed to shoot for the dates as I have done the same before.
I think people are joining the wrong dots that I am replacing Sidhu because of the backlash. Well, also if that is true, I haven’t received any confirmation or information on the same from the channel yet.”
She further added, “If I am truly needed for TKSS, then I will have to actually figure out how to adjust the dates because I am already shooting for ‘My Name Is Lakhan’ with Shreyas Talpade and also for another movie. I can only give clarity when I get it myself. Whether I would want to go ahead with TKSS or not is not the question, but will I be able to go ahead or not is the point. Let’s see.”
