In an old video, Shailesh indirectly slammed The Kapil Sharma Show (earlier known as Comedy Nights With Kapil) and its host Kapil Sharma.
Comparing his serial with the comedy show, he said, there's been too much of vulgarity on the TV.
In a video uploaded on YouTube by ‘Do Bol’, the actor said, “People ask me what do you do for your country? You yourself work for money. I tell them, ‘I’ve promised myself that I’ll not do any such show on the television for which I’ve to ask my daughter not to watch it.”
“I’m proud to be a part of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. There’s so much of vulgarity in terms of content on television these days,” he added.
Further taking a dig at Kapil Sharma's show, he said, “I am ashamed of watching television shows these days. A grandmother who wants to kiss everyone on the show, ‘bua’ who is desperate to get married, a husband keeps abusing her wife."
Comparing Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashmah with Kapil's show he said, "I work for a show where a son always touches his father’s feet, and a grandson respects his grandfather, I’m from a show where we have people from diverse religions from Sikh, Hindu, Gujarati, Rajasthani. We greet one another with ‘Jai Jinendra’.”
“It’s because of the love of you all; this is the longest-running television daily show of the world. We can make people life without getting vulgar,” he concluded.
Currently, Kapil Sharma is on 'exile' that halted telecast of the show. On reports streaming on different platforms that the show going off-air permanently, Kapil had clarified that he is on a small break as well as the show. Kapil will bounce back with a big surprise for the viewers. However, fans need to wait for an official announcement for the same.
