Leave My Seat: Navjot Singh Sidhu writes to Archana Puran Singh


After Navjot Singh Sidhu’s controversial statement on Pulwama attack, the cricketer turned politician had to wash his hand from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. His place was occupied by Archana Puran Singh.

In Saturday’s episode of the show, Kapil read out a message that said, "Dear Archana, I pray for your well-being and good health. I hope you become so healthy that you won’t fit in a chair. For you, I can leave my home, my work and my city. But you have to leave my seat. Yours lovingly, Navjot Singh Sidhu."

On hearing the letter, Archana along with guests Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta who were present along with the audience burst out in laughter. 

Adding more to it, Archana got up from her chair in jest and came back immediately saying it was only for a second.

After his commne,t Sidhu was banned from entering Mumbai’s Film City where ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is being shot.

Sidhu is sacked from ‘The Kapil Sharma’ show after he commented on the Pulwama attack that an entire nation (Pakistan) and its people should not be blamed for the deeds of a few men. 

Sidhu's statement about the Pulwama terror attack reads, "For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?" "It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished."

Angered by his remark, hashtags like #SackSidhu, #BoycottKapilSharmaShow and #UnsubscribeSontyTV trend on Twitter. Archana Puran Singh has reportedly replaced him on the show.
