Archana Puran Singh has started shooting for The Kapil Sharma Show as she posted a picture of herself with the comedian from the sets on Instagram on Wednesday. “On the set right now with Kapil ! Old associations renewed with the fun gang... taking a selfie break with the laughter king,” Archana captioned her selfie with Kapil.
The post, however, doesn’t clarify whether Archana has replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu temporarily or permanently on the show considering reports surrounding the aforementioned instance were doing the rounds off late. See the picture for now and we’ll tell you more on this later.
Producer Salman Khan reportedly asked Sidhu to resign from The Kapil Sharma Show following his remarks in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack that “nations cannot be held responsible for the dastardly acts of terrorists” and that the dialogue with Islamabad should continue. The politician was censured for his comments severely.
Thereafter, reports of Archana replacing Sidhu on the show gained momentum, especially after Sony Entertainment Television, on which The Kapil Sharma Show airs, shared a post on social media welcoming Archana to the show. Incidentally, Sony announced the news a day after reports suggested that Sidhu won’t be a part of the show anymore but Archana’s entry was done without clarity on whether she is indeed his replacement.

On Wednesday, though, Archana told a leading daily that nothing has been finalised as yet. “I don’t know if I am replacing Sidhu permanently. I had shot for two episodes because he was busy with his political commitments. In the past too, many times when Sidhu had other commitments, I had stepped in for him on the show,” Archana had said.
