The Kapil Sharma Show has landed into trouble as an FIR has been filed against the show in the district court of Shivpuri, Madhya Pradesh, as per a report by India Today. As per the report, the complaint has been filed against one episode where actors were shown consuming alcohol while performing a courtroom scene. The complainant reportedly alleged that the actors disrespected the court.

The FIR was filed by a lawyer in the CJM Court. Reportedly, a hearing will take place on October 1, 2021. India Today quoted the lawyer as saying, “The Kapil Sharma Show that is being aired on Sony TV is sloppy. They also 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.”

As per the same report, the case was in reference to an episode that aired on January 19, 2020, and had a repeat telecast on April 24, 2021. The makers or Kapil Sharma are yet to comment on the FIR.

Meanwhile, former Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Mohammad Kaif visited the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show recently. The promos from the upcoming episode are shared online my the channel.
