Kapil Sharma seems to be the favourite child of controversies. The comedian, who made headlines earlier this year over his mid-air rift with Sunil Grover, is now back in news but this time over an alleged argument with cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu.
With Archana Puran Singh all set to take Sidhu's chair for a few episodes, rumours of an argument between Kapil and Sidhu were rife. It was said that Sidhu was apparently not happy with the fact that he is being replaced by Singh.
However, when we got in touch with Kapil, he refuted the rumours making it clear that he can never ever think of replacing Sidhu.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Kapil said, "Aise koi baat nahi hai. Pehle bhi aisa hua hai jaise ki jab hum Sairat ka episode shoot kar rhe the tab Sidhu Sir available nahi the pir jab Jackie Chan aaye humne special episode ke liye Raveena Tandonji ko bulaya tha.. kabhi hota hai yeh jab sidhu sir busy hote hain. Maine khud yeh news padhi lekin sach yeh hai ki meri toh Sidhu sir se baat tak nhi ho payi. Yeh news toh jhooth hai. (There is no truth to this news. This [someone coming in place of Sidhu] has happened before. For example, when we shot for Sairat episode, Sidhu Sir was not there, even when Jackie Chan came, we called Raveenaji for the episode. I read this news but the truth is that I haven't actually spoken to Sidhu Sir. The news is absolutely false.)"
He further added, "Baki Sidhu sir ko replace karne ka toh main soch bhi nhi sakta.. maine jab bhi kahin bhi shoot kia hai toh Sidhu sir ke saath hi plan karta hoon because I feel he is lucky for me. Yeh khabarein pata nhi kaun apne mann se chapte hain.. confirm bhi nhi karte. (About replacing Sidhuji, I can never ever think about this. Whenever I plan to shoot, I always plan it along with Sidhuji because I feel he is lucky for me. I don't know from where these news came, no one confirms it.)"
Well, that should put end to the rumours!
