Kapil Sharma made fun of me…Limits of decency should not be crossed: Shatrughan Sinha


Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha has said that the limits of decency should not be crossed while mimicking the legends of the past in a reference to comedian Kapil Sharma impersonating him on his TV shows in the past.

Speaking to an entertainment portal, the actor-turned-politician said that his actress daughter Sonakshi Sinha had even reprimanded the comedian, who’s been facing tough time in his personal life lately.

“I am sporting enough to take it on the chin. All the greats Lata Mangeshkar, Asha  Bhosle , Amitabh Bachchan have mimics impersonating them. It is fine , as long as the mimicry does nor cross the limits of  decency. This happened with 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, now a BJP MP, told Masala.com.

Kapil had mimicked Sinha on several occasions on his TV shows, that have now been taken off air. The comedian-actor was recently spotted in a very poor shape and his health bore not even a remote resemblance to his smart self during his peak in his TV career. Sonakshi too had appeared on his show several times to promote her films, but at no point did she appear angry with the comedian.

Sinha later went on to talk about one Balbir Singh, who made a career out of mimicking the veteran actor. Singh had landed himself in a spot of bother in 2009, when he made unsuccessful attempt to enter parliament posing himself as Shatrughan Sinha. Since then he’s faced several court cases and criminal complaints. The man, in his 80s, has suffered two heart attacks.

Sinha told the website that Singh ought to have been forgiven since he’s already been through a lot in his life. He said, “The man has suffered  enough. He was the bakra in this so-called sting operation. The  people who masterminded  the  whole thing, the  tv channel, got away with it and  left this poor undefended man  to  face the music. What  did he get out of it? Not even any money, I am told. Forgive him.”
