An FIR was registered against the makers of The Kapil Sharma Show for allegedly showing actors drinking alcohol in a courtroom scene, which aired some time ago.
According to reports, the complaint was registered at a district court in Madhya Pradesh, on Thursday, September 23.
The complainant alleged that during an episode of the show, actors were publicly seen consuming alcohol in a courtroom scene.
“The Kapil Sharma Show that is being aired on Sony TV is sloppy. They also make lewd comments on women. In one of the episodes, a court was set up on the stage and the actors were seen drinking alcohol in public,” said the complainant, who is a lawyer by profession.
“This is contempt of court. That's why I have demanded registration of FIR against the culprits under Section 356/3 in the court. Such display of sloppiness should be stopped,” he stated.
There is no official comment on this issue from the makers of the show yet. Reportedly, the case would be heard on October 1.
Hosted by famous television personality Kapil Sharma, the show is currently India’s one of the best entertainment series, which is aired on Sony TV.
