It seems nothing is going right for comedian Kapil Sharma these days. After his Sony TV show lost the TRP battle following the exit of several of his co-stars, the show host has now courted a fresh controversy after he replaced Navjot Singh Singh Sidhu, who’s been an inseparable part of his show from the day one.
A report by IANS says that actor Archana Puran Singh has now replaced the Punjab Tourism Minister on “The Kapil Sharma Show” for a few episodes after the latter couldn’t make it to the set due to ill health.
“It feels weird sitting on Sidhu ji’s chair as we all are so used to seeing him on his throne. Kapil called me the same day of the shoot and I couldn’t say no to an old friend as we go back a long way,” Archana said in a statement.
“I’m here only for a few episodes, once Sidhu ji is fit and fine, he will take over his throne. I will miss the show when he comes back and I’ll always be waiting for Kapil to call me to come again on this show,” she added.
Archana used to the judge of Comedy Circus show where would frequently perform. That was when the comedian had not become a household name in India.
