Kapil Sharma’s Twitter spat with PM Narendra Modi

We all are aware of the pitfalls of social media and how it can become counterproductive. Kapil Sharma tweeted quite a while back stating that he was asked to pay Rs 5 lakh as bribe by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for making an office in the city. And later, the said property got into a dispute.

In a tweet put out from his official handle, the actor said, “I am paying 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office @narendramodi.”

But earlier this year, Kapil humbly apologised to PM Modi.

An NGO had filed a complaint against Kapil with the Maharastra State Commission for Women when he had cracked a joke, which came out as sexist.

But now, the ‘Firangi’ actor is happily married to Ginni Chatrath and his mindset has certainly changed.

Kapil Sharma’s lack of professionalism at CCL

The funny man is a big sports enthusiast. He was reportedly paid Rs 1.25 crore for CCL (Celebrity Cricket League). Though he was supposed to host the extra innings, reports of him walking out of the league at the last moment surfaced. At the end of the day, Kapil Sharma is also a human and mistakes happen!

Kapil Sharma accused of misbehaving with female co-stars

The comedian can sometimes be accused of misbehaving, but it could just be flirting. On the ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’, the host had reportedly misbehaved with Monali Thakur, Tanishaa Mukerji and other female guests at IIFM (International Marathi Film Festival) Awards 2015 after having a few drinks.

Post this, he wrote a cryptic tweet, which reads, “I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn, I’ve been hurt but I am alive.i am human, I am not perfect but I am thankful :).”

Now, times have certainly changed and these controversies have taught Kapil Sharma about the life a great deal.
