After receiving backlash from opponents and social media for his statement on Pulwama attack, now Navjot Singh Sidhu has to step down from The Kapil Sharma Show. The channel has asked him to leave the show and he will be replaced by Archana Puran Singh.A source close to the channel told Indian Express that, “His remarks have not been taken kindly by most. Also, the channel and the show was getting dragged into the unwanted controversy. This is when the team amicably decided that Navjot make a distance from the show. The team has already shot a couple of episodes with Archana.”Post the Pulwama attack, Sidhu had said, “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”. His comment did not go down well with the netizens and also made #BoycottKapilSharmaShow trend on Twitter yesterday.
