Indian Comedian Kapil Sharma, who performed for Pakistan Super League's Peshawar Zalmi, was slammed by Shiv Sena and other extremist groups for his decision to perform for PSL's franchise.
Indian news website, quoting Shiv Sena, said; “Kapil Sharma is making a mockery of India’s honour. He just wants to earn money and doesn’t care about the country."
Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) also hit out at Kapil Sharma, saying; “He (Kapil) should be ashamed of himself. Pakistani cricketers are banned in IPL but he went there to perform."
Sharma’s performance for PSL's franchise Peshawar Zalmi comes at a time when Singer-turned-union minister Babul Supriyo has called for a temporary ban on Pakistani artists for working in the Hindi film industry, including Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
