Kapil Sharma is television’s most bankable star. He was recently acknowledged as the most viewed stand-up comedian in India and abroad by the World book of Records London. But the popularity has come with its share of controversies.
His fallout with Sunil Gorver in 2017 was bitter, after which the latter opted out of The Kapil Sharma Show. Later, Sharma’s tweets to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about bribes being demanded by a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation officer for construction of his office at Versova sparked a row. His abusive Twitter rant against a senior journalist also created a stir.
