Here’s The Reason Why Akshay Kumar Refused To Appear In The Kapil Sharma Show

While promoting any film, celebrities and makers never miss any chance to appear in one of the popular comedy shows, The Kapil Sharma Show. But this time someone is not happy to appear the same. Akshay Kumar reportedly refused to appear on TV’s popular chat show for movie promotions. This may come as a surprise to the readers as the Bollywood star is known to feature on the show on every occasion a film of his is set for release.  

The reason for Akshay choosing not to feature on The Kapil Sharma Show this time is related to his last appearance when he came to promote Atrangi Re with Sara Ali Khan. 

Sources tell Hindustan Times that during his last promotion of ‘Atrangi Re’, the comedian asked him about an interview he did with a ‘famous personality’ where Kumar asked him how he liked eating mangoes. He was supposedly alluding to an interview that the actor did with PM Modi a few years back. The clip of this exchange between the two is what led to the friction.

In the clip, Kumar goes on to challenge Kapil to openly name the personality, while the comedian diverts the subject. The source, who wishes to stay anonymous, says that apparently after the shoot got over, the actor requested the channel to not air this portion as it made light of the PM’s office.

The channel agreed, but the said scene was leaked on the internet soon after. It was a breach of trust on the part of someone in Kapil’s team, and Akshay sought a clarification before he appears on the show again. Now the shoot of the episode including the prominent members of Bachachan Pandey has been postponed.

Meanwhile, the cast of ‘Bachchan Pandey’, directed by Farhad Samji includes actresses Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez along with Akshay Kumar. Further, fans are hoping that everything would soon be sorted between Akshay and Kapil as they are missing the banter between the two.
