Navjot Singh Sidhu sacked from The Kapil Sharma Show after comments on Pulwama attack

The Kapil Sharma Show has landed in another controversy but it’s because of Navjot Singh Sidhu this time. 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 show or they will boycott the show. In fact, #BoycottSidhu has been trending since last night.We hear exclusively from a source that the channel is in talks with the production house and wants Sidhu to be replaced with immediate effect. The source told us, “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, the channel took a stand. The channel has shot a couple of episodes with Archana Puran Singh and most probably, she will be the one replacing Sidhu.”
