There’s already a lot of controversy surrounding Sidhu’s presence on Kapil Sharma’s show. Captain Amarinder Singh had sought legal advice about Sidhu continuing his TV career; since he’s the minister of Punjab, the CM doesn’t want him to concentrate on both the things simultaneously.
A senior advocate Arora, has filed a PIL against Sidhu in the Punjab and Haryana High Court due to the vulgar jokes which he cracked on Kapil’s show.
He referred to Saturday’s episode which had Ayushman Khurana and Parineeti Chopra as the celebrity guests. Reportedly, Arora was watching this episode with his family
members and he was too embarrassed on seeing such jokes coming from Sidhu. Arora believes that such vulgarity is punishable under IPC.
Tribune didn’t mention for which joke the PIL was filed but we guess it could be when Sidhu shared a Joke & said,
“Hamare idhar ek bahut mote insaan they, thode buzurg bhi they.. wo bathroom karke bahar aaye.. Maine kaha paaji tuhada post office khula hai.. Wo kehta, kaaka jin tizoriyo ke khazaane lut jaate hain, un par taale nahi lagaate…

Now, Arora has demanded an apology from Sidhu and has also appealed to CM Amarinder Singh to ask him to discontinue working with TKSS. The petitioner has argued that if he doesn’t quit Kapil’s show, his other duties (As minister) would be hampered.
Punjab Government has sought some time to give a reply to this issue and hence, the next hearing is scheduled on the 11th of May. Let’s see what decision is taken by the bench headed by justice Darshan Singh and S.S Saron.
