Nurses Plan To File Defamation Case Against Kapil Sharma

The Kapil Sharma show came under the fire after the comedian portrayed the image of nurses in a vulgar way in one of his comic acts. Nurses and staff of Government Medical College in Amritsar complained against the actor for “demeaning” their profession on his weekly show. They also criticized cricketer-turned-politician and former Amritsar MP Navjot Singh Sidhu for participating in the show.

The nurses said that Kapil, on his show, presented their profession in a humiliating way.The protesting nurses burnt Kapil Sharma’s effigy in Amritsar today and also filed a police complaint against him for depicting them in a vulgar way on his show.

 
A report in Hindustan Times, quoted Raj Bedi, State General Secretary, Punjab Nursing Association, saying, “How can Sidhu be part of a show like this that demeans someone’s profession? He keeps laughing at jokes made about the medical profession, including those on doctors, even when his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu (Amritsar-East MLA) is a doctor. We as a community expected that Sidhu would not support this nonsense and such vulgar jokes. Nurses have been objectified on the show since its beginning.”

The nursing union is planning to file a defamation case against Kapil Sharma, concluded the report.

He also demanded an immediate apology from Kapil Sharma, who also belongs to Amritsar, or an FIR be registered against him.

The protesting nurses also objected to the uniform being worn by Rochelle Rao, who plays the role of a nurse on The Kapil Sharma Show.

This is not the first time the comedian and his how has faced the public’s anger. In January, one of the actors of the show was put in judicial custody for two weeks. Kiku Sharda, who played Palak on the show Sharda was arrested despite offering a public apology for “hurting sentiments” of Ram Rahim’s followers.

“Doston the act on TV was not to hurt anyone’s feelings. My apologies to Gurmeet Ram Rahim ji and his followers. Let’s spread happiness,” he had said.
