Comedian Kapil Sharma broke his silence over rumours claiming that Archana Puran Singh has replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu from 'the Kapil Sharma Show'. He clarified that the latter is away just for a while and he will return in coming days.
Talking to an entertainment web portal, Kapil Sharma said, “There is no truth to this news. This has happened before. For example, when we shot for Sairat episode, Sidhu sir was not there, even when Jackie Chan came, we called Raveenaji for the episode. I read this news but the truth is that I haven’t actually spoken to Sidhu sir. The news is absolutely false.”
Navjot Singh Sidhu and Kapil Sharma have been working together since their days on Colors channel’s Comedy Nights With Kapil.
There were reports that Navjot Singh Sidhu has been replaced by Archana Puran Singh for some unknown reason.
Archana Puran Singh had also clarified in earlier reports that she will be replacing Sidhu on 'The Kapil Sharma Show' only for few episodes.
“It feels weird sitting on Sidhu ji’s chair as we all are so used to seeing him on this throne. Kapil called me the same day of the shoot and I couldn’t say no to an old friend as we go back a long way. I’m here only for a few episodes, once Sidhu ji is fit and fine, he will take over his throne. I will miss the show when he comes back and I’ll always be waiting for Kapil to call me to come again on this show,” she said had in a statement to IANS.
