Former Indian cricketer and Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has been terminated from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ over remarks to a press on the ghastly terror attacks in Pulwama on February 12.
Sidhu had said, “Nations cannot be held responsible for the dastardly acts of terrorists. The terrorists do not have deen, majhab (sect and religion). There are good, the bad and the ugly. Every institution has them. Every nation has them. The ugly need to be punished. But individuals cannot be blamed for the dastardly attack.”
Sidhu’s comment was not received well and was trolled harshly on the social media.
While the show has placed actor Archana Puran Singh in the former cricketer’s place and has even shot a couple of episodes.
Earlier also, Archana Puran Singh had replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu in 2017 when the former cricketer was ill.
