Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, who has been an important part of The Kapil Sharma Show, will not be leaving the popular comedy show, a spokesperson has clarified following reports that he will be quitting.
"There's no notice served by Navjot Singh Sidhu to Sony Entertainment Television. A reaction on this issue is unnecessary. All propaganda that he's leaving is false," Preeti Simoes, Creative Head, K9 Productions, said in a statement.
Sidhu's wife Navjot Kaur had earlier said that Sidhu will be seen on the show until 30 September and will focus on his political party Awaz-e-Punjab thereafter.
"Sidhu will now completely focus on Punjab politics. And that is why he has recorded all the shows till September 30 and has already said goodbye to the cast," Kaur said.
The show features Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar, Kiku Sharda, Ali Sagar and Sumona Chakravarti.
Sidhu has been a part of the show since it started in April earlier this year, and he was also associated with Kapil's original hit show Comedy Nights With Kapil.
