Case Filed Against Sidhu For His Vulgar Jokes
Former Indian Cricketer and Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu lands in trouble for cracking vulgar jokes on Kapil Sharma’s reality show. The Punjab government has received a complaint against Sidhu, which says Sidhu cracked inappropriate and double-meaning jokes on the show.
Days after the Punjab and Haryana High Court questioned Sidhu’s regular appearances in The Kapil Sharma Show despite holding an office in the newly elected Punjab government, a Punjab-based senior advocate has filed a complaint against him for his double meaning humor on the show.
In a letter to Punjab chief secretary Karan A Singh, HC Arora, who had filed a PIL against Sidhu in the case wrote, "I viewed The Kapil Sharma Show on Saturday from 9 pm to around 10.15 pm. The ‘comedy’ of Kapil Sharma, and particularly that of Navjot Singh Sidhu was replete with vulgar, double-meanings and obscene dialogues. It violated various provisions of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, as well as those of the Information and Technology (IT) Act."
Arora was of the view that it was improper of a minister to crack such lewd jokes.
