Cricketers turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, who recently resigned as a Member of Parliament ( Rajya Sabha), may quit the popular comedy show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ (TKSS).
New reports suggest that Navjot might take this step to revamp his image which is more inclined towards as a TV personality than a serious politician.
“There's a lot of pressure on Sidhu Paaji to quit our show. We've heard that Paaji has been instructed to stop participating in the comedy show, as he needs to revamp his image,”
a source close to Sony channel on which the show airs was quoted by a leading daily.
Ever since comedian turned actor Kapil Sharma started a show, Sidhu has been an integral part of it. When Kapil left Colors after an ugly battle, Sidhu did too. He joined Kapil and his on screen family for the new show.
In fact, when Kapil’s on screen Bua Upasna Singh joined the cast of TKSS, a few days ago, Sidhu was the one to remark that the family is complete now.
Navjot Singh Sidhu, is one of the pillars on which the show stands. As he sits on the throne and makes remarks to leave the audience splits. Now, if he really quits the show the team will have a difficult time finding another person to fit the bill.
The former cricketer has been on TV for quite long. In 2007 he started judging the ‘Laughter Challenge’ with Shekhar Suman. In 2012 he was a contestant in a reality show Bigg Boss 6.
