Not Kapil, But Anupam Kher Refused To Promote ‘The Kashmir Files’ On ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’

Anupam Kher has defended Kapil Sharma after he received massive backlash for not promoting 'The Kashmir Files' on his show.

Comedian Kapil Sharma has been receiving flak from people for allegedly not promoting ‘The Kashmir Files’ on his show. The controversy started when director Vivek Agnihotri tweeted, “They refused to call us on their show because we don’t have big commercial star.”

He had also said,  “I don’t get to decide who should be invited on @KapilSharmaK9 show. It’s his and his producer’s choice whom he wants to invite.”

Vivek Agnihotri’s tweet spread like wildfire and people began boycotting ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.

However, actor Anupam Kher has now given a clarification on the controversy. In an interview with a news channel, he told that he himself denied going on the show despite Kapil’s request.

Anupam Kher said, “To be honest, I was called to be on the show. And I told my manager that this film is very serious and I can’t promote it on Kapil’s show. So, I want to put my point over here. Kapil had asked me to come on his show two months ago. I have been on his show about two times. It is a funny show and it is very difficult to do a funny show and he does it very well.”

Vivek Agnihotri added, “I was talking about Zee’s official reason given to me. I didn’t tweet with any malice. I love him. We don’t have a TV at our home. We don’t watch television. But when we are out in a hotel, we watch his show.”

Anupam Kher said, “I don’t think Kapil has any malice towards us or the film.” Vivek Agnihotri agreed to Anupam’s statement during the interview.

Kapil retweeted a clip from the interview and made folding hands emoji.

Kapil remained silent after he received massive backlash on social media. He didn’t put out any official confirmation for his fans either. However, a few days ago, when a fan tweeted and asked him about the reason behind not promoting ‘The Kashmir Files’, he had defended himself. The fan wrote to him, “Kapil, why are you scared of promoting ‘The Kashmir Files’? What were you afraid of that you didn’t invite Vivek Agnihotri and the star cast of his film on your show? I used to be a big fan of yours bro, but you have disappointed me and millions of The Kapil Sharma Show Fans. Boycotting you.”

To this, Kapil had replied, “This is not true Rathore Sahab. I am telling you because you asked, otherwise people who have already believed it to be true, there is no use of giving them an explanation. Just a suggestion as a experienced social media user:- never believe in one sided story in today’s social media world. Thank you.”

With the latest revelation by Anupam Kher, we hope that Kapil Sharma will regain the love of his audience.
