An FIR has been registered against the makers of The Kapil Sharma Show over an episode in which the show’s cast was shown to be drinking alcohol while performing a courtroom scene. As per the complainant, the said scene is highly disrespectful towards the court.
The lawyer from Shivpuri has filed an FIR in the CJM Court. The case will be heard on October 1. The lawyer said, “The Kapil Sharma Show aired on Sony TV is very 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. 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.”
The show in question was aired on January 19,2020. The show had a repeat telecast on April 24, 2021.The lawyer claims that it has been shown in the episode that a character is under the influence of alcohol in a courtroom set.
“In the courtroom scene, the co-star comes onstage with a bottle of liquor and urges other people to taste it,” the lawyer told reporters. “This scene outrages the dignity of the court. It should have also featured a statutory warning, which it did not.”
