The big news of today is that Kiku Sharda, known for his role as Palak on Comedy Nights With Kapil, has been arrested because he offended religious sentiments by mimicking Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. It’s a pretty ridiculous situation, and several celebrities have tweeted in support of the actor. Here’s a look at what they’ve said:

I don’t see our leaders getting arrested for behaving like comedians everyday.

Heard @kikusharda ‘s been remanded to judicial custody for mimicking RamRahim on TV! Absurd! RamRahim’s ‘films’ are the real joke, anyway!
