The country may be in the grip of intolerance debate, but for comedian Kapil Sharma, this is nothing but another term for his one-liner Baba Ji Ka Thullu.
According to news agency, IANS,Sharma said that there was no intolerance in India adding that it was the creation of social media trolls, who didn’t have any “work to do.”
He told IANS in Delhi, “…see, it’s just a word. Had you heard about this word earlier? I think it has been made famous by these social media trolls and the news that follows it.”
He also asked people to make fun of intolerance, saying it was as identical as his famous one-liner “baba ji ka thullu.”
“I am telling you, make fun of this word (intolerance),” Kapil said.
“People should not take everything so seriously. There needs to be a scope for humour — healthy humour,” the comedian-actor added.
Sharma recently parted ways with Colors TV bringing an end to his association with popular show Comedy Nights With Kapil Sharma.
The comedian returns to small screen with his much-awaited “The Kapil Sharma Show”, with superstar Shah Rukh Khan as his first guest.
The episode will be aired on Sony Entertainment Television on April 23. It will also feature actors Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Kiku Sharda, Sumona Chakravarti and Chandan Prabhakar.
