FIR against The Kapil Sharma Show for showing actors consuming alcohol

A lawyer from Shivpuri city in Madhya Pradesh filed the FIR and alleged that the show has disrespected courts in an episode

Celebrity comedy-chat programme The Kapil Sharma Show has landed itself in troubled waters. An FIR was recently filed against the makers in the district court of Shivpuri of Madhya Pradesh for showing characters drinking alcohol on stage. The episode in question was aired in January 2020 and its repeat was telecast in April 2021.

“The Kapil Sharma Show aired on TV is very sloppy. They make lewd comments on women. In one of the episodes, a court was set up on the stage and the actors were seen drinking alcohol in public. This is contempt of court. That’s why I have demanded registration of FIR against the culprits under Section 356/3 in the court. Such display of sloppiness should be stopped,” the lawyer, who filed FIR against the show said.

The case was filed in the Shivpuri District and Sessions Court in Madhya Pradesh by a lawyer named Suresh Dhakad, who claimed that the episode with the “objectionable scenes” was aired on  TV on 21 April.

The FIR has been registered against the show’s anchor Kapil Sharma and TV MP Singh under the and Excise Act, according to Dhakad. The matter is set to be heard on 1 October.

Dhakad claimed that in the past too, the comedy show has featured offensive content, such as lewd comments about women. He claimed he had earlier approached the Collector and Superintendent of Police to register a case against the show’s makers, but to no avail.

It was just recently that the Kapil Sharma Show returned with its new season. Kapil was seemingly on a break for months after he was blessed with his second child with his wife Ginni Chatrath. Sources said that Kapil wanted to spend quality time with his family and not get taxed with work at a time when a new member was added to his family.

It has been only a while that The Kapil Sharma Show returned after a hiatus. While Kapil Sharma returned as the host of the show, Archana Puran Singh, Krushna Abhishek, Bharti Singh, Chandan Prabhakar, Kiku Sharda and Sumona Chakravarti made a comeback. Comedians Sudesh Lehri and Gaurav Gera have been roped in and will be seen playing quirky characters.
