There’s good news for all Kapil Sharma fans! You will not be missing the crazy laughter during the show anymore. By laughter, we meant Navjot Signh Sidhu’s laughter, of course! There was buzz that the former Indian cricketer turned politician on The Kapil Sharma Show will be calling it quits to focus more on Punjab politics. In fact, his wife, Navjot Kaur even confirmed the news saying that he has already recorded all the shows till 30th September 2016 and has bid farewell to the cast. His wife further added that Sidhu paaji will now focus on his party, Aawaz-E-Punjab Morcha. While we were sad about this news since we’re so used to his shayaris and laughter on the show, we have a reason to be happy now.
Preeti Simoes, the creative head of The Kapil Sharma Show, who was also rumoured to be dating the comedian, confirmed the Navjot Singh Sidhu will not be leaving the show and that all the news about him leaving are false. She took to Twitter to confirm the news. The tweet said, “There’s no notice served by Sidhu sir to Sony. A reaction on this issue is unnecessary.All propaganda that he’s leaving is false. Thnx” Yayy! Exactly what we were looking forward to. All the characters in the show have made such a huge impact that even if one goes missing, the show seems bland and what’s a Kapil Sharma show without Sidhu paaji’s laughter laughter echoing in the background. Preeti confirmed the news within hours of Sidhu’s wife’s statement about him quitting the show. (ALSO READ: Will you miss Navjot Singh Sidhu on The Kapil Sharma Show? Vote now!)

Though, Sidhu has not given any statement yet to confirm or deny the news of him leaving the show. The politician is quite busy juggling between his political agendas and The Kapil Sharma Show. Sidhu paaji has been associated with the comedy business for years now with The Great Indian Laughter Challenge and Comedy Nights with Kapil which later got rechristened to The Kapil Sharma Show. He was also a part of Bigg Boss but had to quit the reality show due to political reasons. He has also made a few appearances in Bollywood and Punjabi movies. The former cricketer used to be a commentator but was banned by the ICC for passing racial slurs at the Bangaldeshi team. He has also had several bad experiences with sports channels like ESPN and Ten Sports for swearing on air.
