Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna’s “vulgar” remark about The Kapil Sharma Show has not gone down well with Mahabharat co-star Gajendra Chauhan. Mukesh made this comment referring to the Mahabharat cast’s reunion episode on TKSS.
He stated that the reason why he did not join the rest of the cast on Kapil’s show is because he found The Kapil Sharma Show to be “vulgar and cheap”. He even called it the worst show on television for its innuendos and said that comedy is of low quality with men dressing up as women to grab laughs from the audience.
Gajendra Chauhan, who played Prince Yudhishtir in Mahabharat, has called out Mukesh Khanna for degrading The Kapil Sharma Show. In defence of the comedian, Gajendra furiously asked that if Mukesh doesn’t approve of men dressing up as women then why didn’t he leave Mahabharat considering Arjun too had dressed up as a girl for a dance sequence?
“I think Mukeshji now finds grapes sour because he did not get to eat the grapes. This show has been number one, crores of people watch it and he calls it wahiyat (bad quality). He even said that in the showmen dress in women’s clothes. He forgot that even in the Mahabharata, Arjun had dressed up as a girl and danced in a scene, should he have left the show too? Why did Mukeshji not leave Mahabharata at that time? I strongly condemn this behaviour of Mukeshji”, Gajendra was quoted saying in his recent interview with Dainik Bhaskar.

Mukesh, in his Instagram post, had also mentioned that he was invited by Gufi Paintal on The Kapil Sharma Show but he decided to turn it down. Gajendra argued on this statement as well as he said, ” Gufi is not a casting director of the show to invite anybody.”
