Shailesh Lodha on The Kapil Sharma Show

Shailesh Lodha appeared in The Kapil Sharma Show last year. In the interview, he was asked about his appearance on the show and the trolling that he faced soon after. Talking about his appearance on the show, he shared, "Kapil and I’ve worked together and in 2012 we have done shows in Singapore together. Comedy Nights with Shailesh and Kapil during that time. What I was trying to say at that time was that things like Bua, Daadi flirting with guests is not right according to our culture and I still stand by it. I disagree with that kind of comedy, main sahej nahi hoon. But that doesn’t mean I will never go on his show and not tell the world what I’m doing? I went to his show and showed the strength of Hindi poetry. When I recited my poetry 'Maa' every person there on the show stood with tears in their eyes. I went there and went with the strength of poetry. Kapil as an artist no doubt he’s great and is a friend."
