It's been a week since the horrific Pulwama terror attack and the nation is still grieving the loss of over 40 jawans. The country are seething with rage over the ghastly incident. Even as the government is working on a reply and citizens were coming to terms with the deadly strike, Navjot Singh Sidhu gave a statement to the media saying that that the whole country of Pakistan should be blamed for the work of a few people. His statement didn’t go down well with as the country vehemently protested against his comments, calling for him to be ousted from The Kapil Sharma Show and the Punjab government's cabinet. There were reports that Archana Puran Singh would replace Sidhu in The Kapil Sharma Show. The actress confirmed that she has replaced Sidhu but just for two episodes as the cricketer-turned-politician was busy. However, her recent Instagram post makes us wonder if she has replaced Sidhu permanently.
Archana took to Instagram to share a picture from the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show. She is posing with Kapil and in her caption, she writes, ‘”Old associations renewed with the fun gang...” Kapil and Archana have earlier worked together in a bunch of seasons of Comedy Circus. A couple of days ago, Kapil too issued a statement in support of Sidhu and called trends on social media like #BoycottSidhu useless. Kapil's comment too received backlash after Twitterati began trending #BoycottKapilSharma.

The Kapil Sharma Show itself was relaunched a few weeks ago after Kapil returned from a career and health decline. The show received a grand welcome from viewers who rewarded it with good TRP. It will be interesting to see how viewers react to these comments and whether it will have any bearing on the show’s TRPs.
