Dipannita Slams Kapil
Well, this didn't go down well with actress and model Dipannita Sharma, who slammed Kapil for joking about Sanjay's girlfriends. She tweeted, "An actor on a show to promote his next release talks about his score of over 300 girlfriends.The host & audience laughs in good jest.What If a woman said the same thing on a show?Would that be a joke too?This basic gender bias is what has always been wrong.The root of all evil!"
Tweeple Slam Kapil Sharma
Many agreed with Dipannnita's tweet and slammed the comedian. A few even felt that Kapil is stooping low for TRPs. A user named Rashmi Bora Das tweeted, "Totally agree with you! Double standards of our society. We have progressed on various fronts, yet we have different rules for men and women! Really sad!"
"Both in my opinion are signs of an immature & insecure mindset that wishes to glorify certain misplaced aberrations of life as disguised accomplishments as there aren't any already & if past is any indication there isn't any possibility of good sense prevailing in near future."
"Bilkul sahi Maa'm. I was watching the show and felt very uneasy. I think more than Sanjay Dutt, it Kapil Sharma who is responsible. He should know that whole family watches it. Is it something to publicly boast about in a civil society."
"@Dipannitasharma #KapilSharmashow is the cheapest show hosted on Indian television. People laugh at jokes on discrimination, insults and body shaming. Yet such shows run with high TRP. IQ of its audiences are questionable."
