Former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu’s recent pro-Pakistan remarks after the Pulwama attack received a lot of flak and all across different social media platforms are demanding his removal from The Kapil Sharma Show. And the latest we hear is that after a lot of discussions, the makers of the show have decided to sack Sidhu.
During his media interaction after Pulwama attack, Sidhu had stated, “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.”
The statement did not go down well with many who took to Twitter demanding his immediate ouster from the show.
Twitterati reacted strongly and posted tweets such as “we should all boycott Kapil Sharma’s show till Sidhu is removed”, “Kapil Sharma, remove Sidhu from your show or we will boycott The Kapil Sharma Show”.
Sources close to the show informed that the channel had a discussion and together they have decided to sack Navjot Singh Sidhu from the show.
Popular actress Archana Puran Singh in all probability will replace him. The actress has already shot two episodes and the channel has decided to use them. At least Forty CRPF personnel were killed and five injured in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday, when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus in Pulwama district.
