Navjot Singh Sidhu is back in the news and again for a wrong reason. The cricketer-turned-politician during a media interaction recently spoke about Pulwama terrorist attack and went on to say that because of few people we cannot blame the whole country of Pakistan. He said, “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."
Sidhu’s statement didn’t go down well with Twitterati and he was criticised a lot for it. Social media demanded that The Kapil Sharma Show should be boycotted and Sidhu should be removed from the show. Now according to a report in Pinkvilla, Sony TV has decided to sack Sidhu from the show. A source told the entertainment portal that the channel has informed the production house about the decision of sacking Sidhu. Reportedly, Kapil and the other actors involved in the show were supposed to shoot for an episode on Sunday, but it has been postponed till they will find a replacement for Sidhu. It is said that Archana Puran Singh might replace Navjot Singh Sidhu in the show.
