Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has invited fresh trouble for his appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show.
Senior advocate of Punjab and Haryana high court, HC Arora, has filed a plea against Sidhu for cracking “vulgar jokes” in a recent episode of the popular comedy show.
The senior advocate has asked the Punjab chief secretary to take cognizance of the lack of propriety shown on national television by Sidhu.
Arora also said that “it was unbecoming of the minister to use double meaning language on the show.” The advocate has also asked the chief secretary to apprise the chief miniter of the matter, as such obscenity is punishable under the Indian Penal Code.
Meanwhile, Sidhu has skipped a day’s shoot for reasons unknown.
He earlier defended his stint on the comedy show by saying this: “If people had objections to my television assignments, they would not have elected me with nearly 43,000 vote margin. I will work (as a minister) till 3 p.m. and then take a flight to Mumbai.
I will shoot (for the show) till 3 a.m. and be back early morning,” Sidhu told the media.
