Comedian Kapil Sharma is no stranger to online hate, but he says he does not pay much attention to trolls because he believes in making the world a better place with his jokes.

Recently, #BoycottKapilSharmaShow trended on Twitter as netizens were not too thrilled about one of the show’s segments featuring Kiku Sharda and Krushna Abhishek.


A while ago, a netizen attacked Kapil on Twitter for not putting up anything regarding the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Though he shut down the troll in his own style, it’s not always that you see him reacting to all the negative comments coming his way.

In fact, he is currently enjoying his current phase. Last year, he became a dad and now he is associated with a show for kids.

“I am extremely blessed. Each day offers something new. Even before parenthood, I always wished to do something for kids. Hence, you could see the kid avatar on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. But yes, I will try and do more for kids, and ‘The Honey Bunny Show With Kapil Sharma’ is a good start,” he said

Talking more about his new show, he shared: “This was the first time I was shooting for an animated show. The process was something new, but with time I was able to adapt and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. It was a unique and thrilling experience.”

Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourised in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed Pak TV channels to stop airing what it calls indecency and intimacy in dramas, Samaa TV reported.

A notification issued by the authority states that it has been receiving numerous complaints from viewers who believe that the content being depicted in dramas does not represent the "true picture of Pakistani society".

"PEMRA finally got something right: Intimacy and affection between married couples isn't 'true depiction of Pakistani society and must not be 'glamourized'. Our 'culture' is control, abuse, and violence, which we must jealously guard against the imposition of such alien values," said Reema Omer, Legal Advisor, South Asia, International Commission of Jurists.

"Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourized in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated, as per the report.

The authority added that it has directed channels time and again to review content with "indecent dressing, controversial and objectionable plots, bed scenes and unnecessary detailing of events".

Most complaints received by the PEMRA Call Centre during September concern drama serial "Juda Huay Kuch is Tarah", which created quite a storm on social media for showing an unwitting married couple as foster siblings in a teaser for an upcoming episode. However, it only turned out to be a family scheme after the full episode aired, but by that time criticism had mounted on HUM TV for using the themes of incest to drive the plot, the report said.
