Shailesh Lodha issues clarification about his statement against The Kapil Sharma Show 

Actor Shailesh Lodha, who is best known for his role in popular TV show 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma', recently made lots of headlines by departing from the show after a 14 year long stint. Couple years back, Shailesh had slammed a certain TV show for promoting vulgarity with its content and it was assumed that he was taking a dig at 'The Kapil Sharma Show'. However, in a recent media interaction, the actor has clarified that his comment was not aimed at Kapil and was generic in nature.

Shailesh told Siddharth Kannan, “This story is different. I never said that. I had only said there are shows on TV that are vulgar where a grandmother goes around kissing people. It was about that content. There are many shows like that. I felt there is a better way to do comedy. It was never about a show. People connected it to something else. Kapil and I have performed on stage together.”

Taking his point further, the actor stated, “There was nothing like that. I was talking about the vulgarity in TV shows that has started to emerge now. I was talking about that. I wasn’t talking about someone personally. I never do that. Kapil is a very good artiste and a friend. It was not about him at all.”

However, if one looks at the original statement, it becomes clear as day that Shailesh was talking indirectly about 'The Kapil Sharma Show'. He had said, "Mai kuch karyakram dekhta hu toh mujhe sharam aati hai. Eak dadi jo har vyakti ko chumna chahti hai, ek aisi bua jo shadi ke liye betab hai, eak pati jo apni patni ko pratarit karta hai. Mai uss karyakram mai kaam karta jismai ek beta har baat ke liye apne baap ke pair chuta hai."
