The Kapil Sharma Show has landed in legal trouble as an FIR has been lodged against the show at the district court of Shivpuri, Madhya Pradesh. Reports suggest that the complaint was filed against an episode of the show TKSS, which featured the actors consuming alcohol on the stage while performing a courtroom scene. The complainant further alleged that the actors of the show have disrespected the court and the law.
A lawyer from Shivpuri filed a case against the show’s anchor Kapil Sharma and Sony TV Director MP Singh under the IT Act and Excise Act. The matter is set to be heard on October 1, reported Indian Express.
A Pinkvilla report quoted the lawyer saying, “The Kapil Sharma Show aired on Sony TV is very sloppy. They also make lewd comments on women. In one of the episodes, a court was set up on the stage and the actors were seen drinking alcohol in public. This is contempt of court. That's why I have demanded registration of an FIR against the culprits under Section 356/3 in the court. Such displays of sloppiness should be stopped.”
The case was lodged in reference to an episode that aired on January 19, 2020, and it was repeat telecasted on April 24, 2021. The lawyer claimed that the episode featured a character under the influence of alcohol in a courtroom set. As per the lawyer, it is a case of disgrace to the court.
