Kapil Sharma and his show have become a hot topic of debate on social media after the director of The Kashmir Files Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri tweeted that the show did not invite the star cast of his team because it does not have a big commercial actor. This irked Twitteratti who made a lot of allegations on the comedian.
However, yesterday when Anupam Kher the lead actor of The Kashmir Files clarified that he himself decided to opt-out of the show as the content of his movie was very serious and sensitive and not suitable to the format of TKSS, things started to cool down.
Kapil shared the same video on his Twitter handle and thanked Kher Saab for clarifying the issue. However, later on, the Saransh actor trolled Kapil saying that he should have shared the entire video that also included the comments of the director Vivek Agnihotri.
While now slowly the controversy is cooling down, Kapil Sharma seems to have gained a few more followers from none other than our neighboring country Pakistan who habe now started showering love on the famous standup comedian.
A couple of users tweeted, “We love you from Pakistan.” There were a few Indian users who also slammed Kapil for not promoting or supporting The Kashmir Files.
It is not only Kapil, but the majority of the Bollywood A-listed stars did not promote the movie as they promote the other ventures. It was after Akshay Kumar congratulated Anupam Kher for his fantastic performance in The Kashmir Files and Kangana Ranaut lambasted Bollywood for ignoring this movie, that slowly reactions have started pouring in.
Late in the evening yesterday, Riteish Deshmukh and Sunil Shetty also promoted The Kashmir Files on their social media platforms. Yami Gautam, who is married to a Kashmiri Pandit Aditya Dhar, also supported and promoted the film.
Content is not just king. It’s the kingdom. Brilliant narrative & performances in #TheKashmirFiles. Proof that good films work. If one can feel pain through the big screen it’s full marks to the makers.
