The nursing staff in Amritsar feel that they are being portrayed in a VULGAR manner...
has been a hit with the audience and everyone have been loving the show. Stars and fans have been showering love on The Kapil Sharma Show Kapil Sharma and his team for coming back with a very entertaining show, but it seems that the show might have run into controversy already. While Kapil had retained most of his partners in crime from Comedy Nights With Kapil, we did see a few additions. One such addition was Rochelle Maria Rao, the pretty nurse who everyone falls in love with.
We have seen
Rochelle being very clumsy and act very sensuously, but this hasn't gone down with a certain section of people. The nursing staff from various medical colleges and hospitals in Punjab staged a protest at Guru Nanak Dev Hospital in Amritsar and later on even filed a complaint against Kapil Sharma. They even slammed Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was BJP’s Lok Sabha MP from Amritsar earlier.
Raj Bedi, the state general secretary of Punjab Nursing Association told a leading daily, "How can Sidhu be a part of a show like this that demeans someone’s profession? He keeps laughing at jokes made about the medical profession, including those on doctors, even when his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu (Amritsar-East MLA) is a doctor! We as a community expected that Sidhu would not support this nonsense and such vulgar jokes. Nurses have been objectified on the show since its beginning."
The nurses filed a complaint against
Kapil Sharma and the police have assured them due action. A nursing student also told the daily, "This is insulting; no nurse behaves like this in real life. We are part of a dignified profession." Another added, "The kind of relationship that has been depicted between a doctor and a nurse on the show is derogatory. Our community is against the kind of uniform worn by the actor Rochelle Rao, who plays a nurse." Another nursing staff member mentioned, "Doing comedy is one thing but demeaning someone’s profession is quite another."
