India’s current comic craze had to face the ire of his fans recently. But why?
Kapil Sharma might have won zillions of hearts with his spot-on sense of humour, but the Comedy Nights with Kapil host had to face some heat on Twitter recently. Wondering what are we talking about? Well, the story goes something like this…
Ridiculing Rahul Gandhi’s allegations against him, Narendra Modi said the Congress leader’s comical statements could soon force Kapil Sharma to end Comedy Nights With Kapil. “The way Rahul Baba is making statements with a dash of comedy in them, I think the TV show of Kapil Sharma may soon have to shut shop,” Modi wrote on Twitter.

Phir kya hua? Kapil shared Mr Modi’s tweet on his Facebook page as he was quite elated by the popularity of CNWK. But little did he knew that he would find himself in the midst of some trouble. As soon as Kapil shared the tweet, he was flooded with abuses by fans online. Ultimately the CNWK host and producer had to delete Modi’s tweet from his page to avoid any further damage.
Kapil later expressed his displeasure over his fans’ behaviour and wrote on Facebook, “Hello friends.. It hurts when i see u people fighting on a social networking site.. Bad words.. Abusing.. Its really sad.. Its my request to all of u ..Pls dont write such bad words to each other on d name of religion.. No religion teaches us to abuse or to disrespect other religion… Please come out of all dis things.. V all are human beings..I just shared mr modi’s tweet abt d show becoz u all love dis show.. I felt bad n delete that pic n tweet.. Learn to love each other.. Learn to respect each other.. Lets change this world.. So that “humare baad jo generation aye.. Unhe nafrat ka pata hi na ho. God bless this beautiful world.. Keep smiling…Love you all..”
Looks like the funny man didn’t want the TRPs of his show to drop down because of this political tamashaa.
If you will remember even Salman Khan was subjected to a lot of hatred when he had lunch with Narendra Modi during his visit to Gujarat as a part of Jai Ho promotional tour. To an extent that, people decided to boycott the film and hence the movie couldn’t rake in a lot of moolah at the box office as compared to Khan’s earlier films.
Anyway, as Kapil rightly said, it’s quite sad to see people fighting and abusing in the name of religion. It’s high time that we give religion a break, hai na? Hoping that people won’t start abusing us after this post. Wink, wink!
