FIR lodged against The Kapil Sharma Show for showing actors under alcohol influence in courtroom scene


Kapil Sharma and his team of comedians have been entertaining fans with their biweekly show, titled The Kapil Sharma Show. The show has garnered a strong fan base over the years. The new season of The Kapil Sharma Show started on August 21. A month later, the makers of the show have found themselves in trouble. An FIR has been lodged against The Kapil Sharma Show in a district court of Shivpuri, Madhya Pradesh.

The complainant noticed that in an episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, the actors were shown consuming alcohol on the stage while performing a courtroom scene. They were accused of disrespecting the court. A lawyer from Shivpuri filed the FIR and also criticised the actors for making lewd comments on women. The matter will be heard on October 1.

The lawyer said, "The Kapil Sharma Show aired on Sony TV is very 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."

The case was filed in reference to an episode that aired on January 19, 2020. The repeat telecast of the episode was aired on April 24, 2021.
