Indian comedian Kapil Sharma’s earning on the The Kapil Sharma Show continues to be a matter of concern for his friends and co-workers.
Not long ago, Archana Puran Singh, who is a permanent guest on the show, termed him a ‘dacoit’ for robbing Sony Entertainment Television with his high salary. The two often make fun at the expense of each other. Kapil shared a behind-the-scene clip from a latest episode which displayed how Archana took potshots at Kapil over his earning.
Kapil sharma welcomed filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala, his wife Warda Nadiadwala along with actors Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon and Ahan Shetty on the show.
During the conversation which was edited from the episode, Kapil joked, “Kabhi kabhi hum bachpan mein alag alag cheezein sochte hain na jaise maine Sholay dekhi aur mujhe laga main bada hoke daaku banunga (We get weird thoughts while growing up, like as a child, after watching Sholay, I thought of becoming a dacoit).”
Archana Puran Singh instantly reciprocated to him, “Daaku hi bana hai tu, Sony ko loot raha hai, daaku hi hai tu (You have actually become a dacoit, you’ve been looting Sony, you are a dacoit).” Putting the ball back in her court, Kapil replied to her, “Main hi loot raha hoon na Sony ko? Aap toh lunch ke upar aati hain (Am I the only one looting Sony? You come here only for lunch).”
Earlier, Shark Tank India's ‘shark' Anupam Mittal had made a comment on how Kapil Sharma, along with KBC host Amitabh Bachchan, took almost all the money Sony had.
During an interview, Anupam was quized about the rumour that ‘sharks’ didn't use their own money for investing into companies.
He replied, “Aisa toh ho hi nahi sakta hai. Channel ke paas jitne paise the, aadhe Bachchan saab le gaye, aadhe Kapil Sharma le gaye. Channel ke paas toh kuch bacha hi nahi, toh humko kya denge? (How can this happen? Whatever money the channel had, Amitabh Bachchan took it. Half of it was taken by Kapil Sharma)." Amitabh Bachchan was the host of KBC on Sony.
