Kapil Sharma and Narendra Modi

Popular stand up comedian Kapil Sharma, is once again embroiled in a controversy. Kapil had retweeted a Modi tweet so had to face the wrath of his fans on Twitter . Looks like he has become controversy’s favourite child , from Sunil Grover’s exit from the show to being blamed for tax evasion, there have been several instances in the past where Sharma has courted controversy.



As per sources, Modi had tweeted, “The way Rahul Baba is making statements with a dash of comedy in them, I think the TV show of Kapil Sharma may soon have to shut shop.”

The moment Kapil retweeted Modi’s tweet, he was bombarded with abuses by fans on social media. In order to avoid any further damage he deleted the tweet and wrote a message for his fans on his Facebook page.
Hello friends.. It hurts when i see u people fighting on a social networking site.. Bad words.. Abusing.. Its really sad..

Defending himself Sharma said that, “I just shared the picture as it was great to see that our senior leaders know about the show (Comedy Nights). The post was not political. It was simply for the show.”
