Bhubaneswar/Mumbai: Twitter was flooded with tweets of #boycottsidhu and #boycottkapilsharmashow soon after Navjot Singh Sidhu gave a comment on the Pulwama terror attack.
When the whole has stood together to fight against this heinous attack, Sidhu gave a comment that that for a handful of people the entire nation (Pakistan) couldn’t be blamed. His comment didn’t go well with the netizens and seeing the boycott tweets Sony TV was forced to sack Sidhu.
After this Kapil Sharma said during an event at Chandigarh that ‘banning or sacking’ Sidhu from his show is ‘not a solution. His such a comment invited more trouble and few hours later #BoycottKapilSharma started trending in the tweeter.
Rumors are there that SONY TV might also be boycotted if it does not make the show off air and it might be that the TV will cancel the show for a few months.
But Sony TV, in a tweet on February 17, already confirmed that they have replaced Sidhu. It had tweeted, “We welcome Archana Puran Singh on #TheKapilSharmaShow, next Sunday!”
