Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was scheduled to shoot for Kapil Sharma's comedy show Comedy Nights With Kapil yesterday, since both the parties did not want to violate any laws they cancelled the shoot mutually.
Kapil's Comedy Nights had to shoot a fun episode with Kejriwal, but with Delhi polls happening today, no leader can promote their parties and ideologies on any public platform 48 hours before polls.
Though Kejriwal's being on the show was not to propagate anything, but to shoot a fun episode pertaining to his activities, it would have been considered violation of rules.
The episode was meant to be a fun episode say the makers of the show. A leading website quoted a source from the production house as saying, "We were looking at a fun episode with questions in a lighter vein about his dharna and hunger strike."
Comedy Nights With Kapil, has so far had guests like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and many other Bollywood celebrities. Kejriwal's appearance would have marked a first for any politician to grace the show.
Kapil being the ambassador of Delhi election has been urging people in Delhi and his fans to cast their vote and put their rights to good use.
