Kiku Sharda who plays the popular character Palak on Comedy Nights With Kapil has been arrested today for mocking guru-turned-actor Gurmeet Ram Rahim. Apparently, Kiku has been charged of hurting the religious sentiments of millions of followers of the guru. The comedian had dressed up in an all bling attire that imitated the guru’s dressing style for an act on his TV show.
As per sources, Kiku was arrested this morning while he was shooting for the last episode of the popular comedy show. The source said, “The act was unintentional he did not meant to hurt anybody’s emotions and whatever.”
Earlier the comedian had also tweeted, “Doston the act on TV was not to hurt anyone’s feelings. My apologies to @Gurmeetramrahim ji and his followers. Let’s spread happiness.” However, the followers seem to be very hurt by his act, which resulted in the arrest of Kiku. After all, the comedian had to pay the price for being funny.
