Bhubaneswar: Comedy star Kapil Sharma, who has courted a number of controversies in the past, has once again made headlines for the wrong reasons.
As per reports, the comedian has drawn criticism from yesteryear star and MP Shatrughan Sinha. In a recent interview, Sinha said Kapil ‘crossed the line’ by making fun of him on his show. The MP further said that even his daughter, actor Sonakshi Sinha, has reprimanded Kapil for doing the same.
“I am sporting enough to take it on the chin,” Shatrughan said, according to a report in India Today. “All the greats Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Amitabh Bachchan have mimics impersonating them. It is fine, as long as the mimicry does not cross the limits of decency. This happened to me when Kapil Sharma made fun of me on his show. My daughter Sonakshi even reprimanded him. The mimic should not forget that he is paying a homage to a man or a woman he or she admires. Limits of decency should not be crossed. Also, the mimicry should be restricted to the stage, and not taken out on the streets and certainly not into the Parliament,” Sinha said.
It may be mentioned here that Kapil posed mimicked Sinha while hosting the ‘Bhojpuri KBC’ segment of his show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
