'The Kapil Sharma Show' has landed in legal trouble. An FIR has been filed against the makers of 'The Kapil Sharma Show' for showing actors drinking on the stage while performing a courtroom.
Complaint filed by MP lawyer
A lawyer from Shivpuri city in Madhya Pradesh filed the FIR. He alleged that the show disrespected courts in one of its episode. A character of the show was shown drinking on the stage while performing a courtroom scene. The episode aired on January 19, 2020, but had a repeat telecast in April this year.
The lawyer alleged that, “The Kapil Sharma Show is very sloppy. They also make lewd comments on women. In one of the episodes, a court was set up on the stage and the actors were seen drinking alcohol in public. This is contempt of court. That's why I have demanded registration of FIR against the culprits under Section 356/3 in the court. Such display of sloppiness should be stopped.”
'The Kapil Sharma Show' is hosted by comedian Kapil Sharma. Apart from Kapil, the show stars Sumona Chakravarti, Bharti Singh, Krushna Abhishek, Sudesh Lehri and Archana Singh. After being off-air for almost seven months, the show returned to TV screens on August 21.
