The Kapil Sharma Show seems to have courted some controversy. According to a report in TOI, nursing staff from various medical colleges and hospitals protested at Guru Nanak Dev Hospital in Amritsar. Apparently slogans were raised against Kapil Sharma and Navjyot Singh Sidhu for making fun of a nurse’s profession and mocking it.
Raj Bedi, State General Secretary, Punjab Nursing Association, was quoted by HT as saying:
How can Sidhu be part of a show like this that demeans someone’s profession? He keeps laughing at jokes made about the medical profession, including those on doctors, even when his wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu (Amritsar-East MLA) is a doctor. We as a community expected that Sidhu would not support this nonsense and such vulgar jokes. Nurses have been objectified on the show since its beginning.
