Actor-Comedian Kapil Sharma and his popular Television show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is being vouched for a boycott by the netizens. It gained an evening trend on Twitter late Monday that came after filmmaker Agnihotri tweeted that makers of the show refused to promote his upcoming film – ‘The Kashmir Files’.
Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri was recently requested by a fan on Twitter to promote his upcoming film ‘The Kashmir Files’ on The Kapil Sharma Show.
Responding to the user’s tweet, Vivek expressed disappointment over not being invited by Kapil and his team and said that he is nobody to decide if he can promote the film on the show.
The director wrote, “I don’t get to decide who should be invited on @KapilSharmaK9 show. It’s his and his producers choice whom he wants to invite. As far as Bollywood is concerned, I’d say what once Mr. Bachchan was quoted saying about Gandhis: Vo raja hai hum rank.”

In another previous tweet, Vivek Agnihotri even claimed that the show refused to promote his film because it didn’t have a ‘commercial star’ in its starcast. “They refused to call us on their show because we don’t have big commercial star. #FACT,”
As soon as Vivek’s tweet went viral, netizens demanded the ‘boycott of Kapil Sharma’. The comedian is getting slammed by internet users on social media for being biased towards big Bollywood stars.
Let’s take a look at what few Netizens have tweeted:

Shame on you #KapilSharmaShow
You just forgot your past. You are nothing but a simple standup comedian when you started your journey. You must respect young actors and actresses. https://t.co/LOyp8PyFD6
