For who do not know much about the stand-up comedian has been in scandals and controversies from past few years. In July last year, the Ollywood actor-comedian Papu was charged under the IPC and the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act) in connection with the minor girl casting couch.


Notably, a minor girl had alleged Papu of sexually harassing and then after the Odisha High Court had granted him a conditional bail, directing him to neither threaten the witnesses nor tamper the evidence.
In 2016, he was physically abused by a group of men who smeared his face with black ink for passing derogatory comments against Lord Jagannath in Puri.
