Mukesh Khanna played the role of Bhisma and he was a part of the serial from start to the finish.
Naturally, every Mahabharat fans expected him to be a part of The Kapil Sharma Show.
But if you follow the reports that are circulating in the media suggest that he was not invited. That is the reason why he was absent from the show. There were also a series of tweets which Mukesh Khanna had posted on the social media platform and then deleted them quickly sparking speculations that it was him who refused the invitation and not Kapil who did not invite him.
Mukesh Khanna who is also famous for playing the role of Shaktimaan denied being a part of the show because of its clumsiness and in the show, men dress up as women and perform vulgar acts.
Mukesh Khanna said, “The Kapil Sharma Show is nonsense.” Gajendra Chauhan hit back by saying, “It is wrong to call the show rubbish and clumsy. I think Mukesh Khanna is now feeling that the grapes are sour because he could not eat it. Millions of people watch this show and he calls it rubbish.“
Chauhan also said, “Even Arjun dressed up as a woman in Mahabharata. Then why did Mukesh continued with the serial? He should have left it.“
The Kapil Sharma in its recent episode also mocked Arnab Goswami where Kiku Sharda aka Bachcha Yadav imitated the news anchor during the Manoj Bajpayee and Anubhav Sinha special episode.
As a result of this debate and also Kapil being silent on Sushant Singh Rajput’s issued, a trend has emerged on Twitter which says, #BoycottKapilSharmaShow.
